Authenticators are devices in the user possession that can generate a one-time password.

Context

Problem

Give users a handle held device that can generate password for access to secure accounts.

Solution

  • The original Security Dynamics (later RSA, now Dell) Authenticator was a small hand held device that continually generated a password every (eg 30) seconds that could be sync'd with the server.
