We are proud that we today have added the option for our hosted and managed MISP customers to use multi factor authentication, when logging into MISP.
This addition allows for an extra layer of security on the user authentication part, provided as standard in MISP.
The reason for MFA is that there is no perfect authentication factor. Any one factor that is implemented will have its strength and weaknesses. The concept of multi-factor authentication is that a second or third factor will compensate for the weakness of the other factor/s and vice-versa.
