A Robust And Scalable Four Factor Authentication Architecture To Enhance Security For Mobile Online Transaction

[Full Text]



Elliot Mbunge, Talent Rugube



Authorization, multifactor authentication, online transaction



This paper was focusing on the designing of a robust and scalable four factor authentication architecture to enhance security for electronic transactions. Mobile device are vulnerable to several security threats especially when purchasing good and services online. Currently, some banking institutions and e-commerce websites use two factor authentication to verify and validate customers when making online payments. Two factor authentication is regarded as the weakest authentication method. Mobile devices users are vulnerable to online mobile fraudulent activities due to several factors. The researchers designed a four factor security architecture to mitigate security threats because security is vital when making online transactions.
