Julie Conroy, Aite Group

Creating an Authentication Framework explores current attitudes and trends in developing an organization-wide consumer authentication strategy.

This paper addresses the following:

  • Authentication options for consumer-facing applications have grown exponentially.
  • Financial Institutions are adopting multiple modes of authentication for different customer experiences and risk levels.
  • As new authentication methods are integrated, FIs need to ensure they are improving their security stance while they improve user experience.
  • The ability to quickly support new authentication options is paramount.
  • A Standards-based authentication framework allows a deploying organization the ability to weave new authentication methods into its existing framework seamlessly.
