One Time Password Security Solution
A password is a secret word or phrase that must be used to gain access to something. That something can either be an application, a network, documents, data or a computer system. Generally, a password should consist of something that is hard to guess, so that it will remain a secret. We call this type of password as “static password” as it does not change and rarely altered.

The Problem with Static Password
However, with our increasing dependence on the Internet, using static password to gain access to a system is no longer safe. This is because static passwords can be cracked, guessed or stolen. Hackers are getting better each day at cracking sophisticated passwords. Once this happened, they can gain access to your private network and steal your sensitive business information such as your customer database, emails or financial information.
Besides that, static passwords have many other shortcomings. It is a hassle for users, having to remember a lot of passwords for different systems or applications. Another problem with static password is it is a drain for helpdesks; more than half of all end user calls relate to password problems such as lost, forgotten or compromised passwords. Management and security managers are also getting headaches with the use of static passwords as the weak authentication method renders user not accountable or responsible for their actions. Besides that, with a static password, we can never know when it is stolen until it is too late.
So now you may ask yourself, what is the ideal solution that can provide STRONG AUTHENTICATION to protect your valuable business information?
The answer is 2-Factor Authentication Method such as SecureOTP Authentication Server 3 by SecureMetric Technology. SecureOTP Authentication Server 3 uses One-Time-Password (OTP) technology to provide strong authentication. An OTP is a password that is valid for only ONE login session or transaction and after that it becomes obsolete. It is also known as a dynamic password. There are two approaches to generate an OTP:
- Time based OTP – the OTP changes at frequent intervals (for example every 30 or 60 seconds).
- Event-based OTP – the OTP is generated by pressing a button on the OTP device or token.
The great thing about SecureMetric’s SecureOTP Authentication Server 3 is that it supports multiple 2-factor authentication OTP tokens, for instance:
- SecureOTP Hardware Tokens
- SMS and Messaging Tokens
- J2ME Mobile Token
- Software Token
- Browser Token
