ACSP Suggestion 2017.1: Two-factor functionality improvement


Author: Dani Roisman   
Submitted On: 20 January 2017


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

Status: Open   Updated: 10 April 2018

This suggestion is not on the 2018 Work Plan and will be considered as part of the Community Consultation on Open ACSPs in April 2018. This consultation will serve as one of the inputs to help determine which suggestions will be included ARIN’s 2019 Work Plan.
