The intent of multi-factor authentication (MFA) is to provide a higher degree of assurance of the identity of the
individual attempting to access a resource, such as physical location, computing device, network or a database.
MFA creates a multi-layered mechanism that an unauthorised user would have to defeat in order to gain access.
This document describes the industry-accepted principles and best practices associated with multi-factor
