      • Something you have e.g. token or mobile phone
      • Something you are e.g. finger print
    • Evaluation criteria

    • Smartcards
      • Extra device required (also card readers), lockout risks
    • Certificates
      • Easily copied, technical difficulties in installations, not portable
    • Soft tokens
      • High installation & support costs, device dependencies, two-factor across a single channel
