Securing the Department of Defense in 2024 with phishing-resistant MFA

Presented by

Alex Antrim, Sr Solutions Engineer, Yubico

About this talk

It is more vital than ever to maintain robust data security and easy information sharing across the Department of Defense (DoD). Previously, DOD professionals relied upon issuance of credentials stored on single-protocol smart cards, creating UX complexity, an increased cost of supporting devices, and limited usage across devices and systems. Phishing-resistant multi-factor authentication (MFA) is quickly becoming the new bulwark against modern cyber threats, including emerging quantum threats. To optimize information sharing, provide robust data protection, and ensure that agencies continue to safeguard the nation’s most sensitive information, a Zero Trust security model with a strong identity credentialing and access management (ICAM) stack that supports secure credential issuance on an AAL3 phishing-resistant authenticator, is key. Each of these requirements would be supported by an approved multi-protocol, multi-factor, AAL3 hardware authenticator that has a valid FIPS 140-2 certification. This session will describe the value of modern authentication, phishing-resistant protocols, and how hardware-based multi-protocol authenticators can secure users across the Department of Defense.
