ACSP Suggestion 2017.1: Two-factor functionality improvement


Dani Roisman
Submitted On:
20 January 2017

Description: Add "remember this computer for 30 days" functionality to 2-factor authentication. Specifically, allow me to request/accept a browser cookie which will allow me to log back into ARIN online on a 2-factor authenticated account with only username/password. This cookie will become ineffective after 30 days of clicking the checkbox.

In this case, there is still 2-factor:

  • Something I know = username/password
  • Something I have = browser cookie

Value to Community: This will streamline the process for frequent ARIN Online users to log back into the portal on subsequent visits, and further encourage the adoption of 2-factor (by not being as burdensome).

Timeframe: Not specified
