Thank you for your suggestion, numbered 2023.2 upon confirmed receipt, asking that ARIN allow multiple hardware security keys for two- factor authentication (2FA) so that a single key cannot be a single point of failure.

We agree that allowing multiple hardware keys would be beneficial to customers and would increase the robustness of our 2FA implementation. We will investigate the requirements to build this new feature and schedule it for future development. Your suggestion will remain open until implemented. Thank you for participating in the ARIN Consultation and Suggestion Process.
