Designing of User Authentication Based on Multi-factor Authentication on Wireless Networks

Muchamad Rusdan and Daniel TH Manurung

The purpose of Multi-factor Authentication is to create multiple layers of defense and make it more difficult for unauthorized people to access targets such as physical locations, computer equipment, networks, or databases. If one factor is compromised or destroyed, the attacker still has at least one more barrier to break before successfully breaking the target. Multifactor authentication is a system in which two or more different factors are used together to authenticate. Using more than one factor is sometimes called "strong affirmation." In general, multifactor methods demand various reactions to test requests and returns, such as "Something You Have," "Something You Know," and "Something You Are." The research method used is an interpretive approach that uses inductive reasoning associated with qualitative methods. The data source in this study is from the results of observations and secondary data that must be analyzed and interpreted before use. The system development method uses the wireless network development life cycle. Based on research that has been done, it is concluded that the design of user authentication based on Multi-factor Authentication is safe and user-friendly using the Something Something you know; in this section, users are required to enter a password that will be used when using wireless network services. Something you have, in this section, the user will get a one-time password (OTP) token that is obtained automatically from the OTP server sent by SMS or email to the users of wireless network services. Something you are, then in this section, the user is required to upload a photo of his face when registering wireless network services.
