This article needs considerable expansion. Could someone with expertise have a go at it? Dbfirs 14:24, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Merged already into Authentication[edit]

Without third-party sources, unlike the ones in there now, to say nothing of a clear definition, this really doesn't merit an article. I think the concept is already covered quickly and cleanly in Authentication. ★NealMcB★ (talk) 04:15, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

Expansion and Relevance[edit]


This article has several issues:

  • it is focused on the European Union and all sources are centered around ECB-regulations
  • it misses a global view
  • it still misses a clear description of the alternatives for strong authentication (e.g., dual channel authentication via mobile phone and computer,,,,)


The subject is relevant as increasing Internet fraud makes this stronger approach of authentication more relevant. The main article about authentication is not really able to answer this and really responds in a summary approach (which is good enough in the overall context of authentication).

Next Steps[edit]

I am currently selecting notable sources to improve this article. If anybody wants to join in, pls simply comment in this talk page. Also you might want to provide links to sources here. Any support or suggestions are deeply appreciated.
