Multi-factor Authentication Options

Personal Code (PF)

To proof his/her identity ADUCID provides a feature called personal code

  • Personal Code something only user knows
  • ADUCID uses a picture sequence or number sequence
  • User has only one PF for all his services and devices

Comfort factor (CF)

As soon as Personal Code is created user can add a comfort factor. When service provider allows,

  • CF can be used instead of PF
  • PF can always be used instead CF

Possible types of the Comfort factor:

NFC On Android phone a user can use a NFC tag.
Apple Touch ID On iOS devices with fingerprint sensor (iPhone 5S or better) user can activate fingerprint factor as addition to his / her secret.
Apple Face ID On iPhone X user can activate face recognition factor as addition to his / her secret.
Fingerprint For phones with native Android fingerprint support (not for proprietary implementations).
Bluetooth User can user some BT device like sport tester - something she/he has. When BT device is visible, CF authentication is automatically resolved.
