Security by Design means UX by Design
Smartphones have long been recommended for the convenience they offer, and there’s no denying their tremendous impact on the user experience. As part of a multi-factor authentication solution, while they may be a popular choice, experience has shown that they may not be the most secure way to protect your systems and data. Let’s take a closer look at Smartphoneless.
The combination login/password remains the most used tool to date. However, over time, hackers have developed a wide variety of techniques, which have become increasingly effective, to steal these credentials and usurp identities. In response, the level of requirements for password management has increased significantly:
- Mandatory complexity of passwords (length, characters used, etc.)
- Unique password for each service used
- Automatic logout of accounts/profiles, requiring regular reconnection with the above constraints
To strengthen the password-based security model, the UX has been deteriorated and the idea has been established that more security = more complexity.
Why human behaviour is the main weakness of security
With all these requirements and constraints which come with the login/password combination, it is not surprising that human behaviour is the main weakness of security measures.
The password security model, which was intended to be more secure, has, in fact, been made more vulnerable by the increasing number of constraints.
It’s by no means a foregone conclusion.
To counteract this trend, the user experience as such must be integrated into the design of the security solution itself.
Combining security and a seamless connection experience
Let’s take a closer look at what solutions on the market offer in terms of connection experience. You’ll be surprised to find that you probably don’t use the easiest, fastest, or even the most secure solution unless you’re a customer of a good strong authentication solution.
