Corresponding authentication factor

• The need for multi-factor authentication

 In recent years, password leaks have occurred frequently in various places, and there are many cases of information leaks.

 In JAIST, user's e-mail and various services can be used by user name and password authentication (one-step authentication), and information leakage may occur due to password leakage.

 Therefore, in order to prevent information leakage due to password leakage, we will perform multi-factor authentication for available services.

• What is multi-factor authentication

 It refers to the function that adds another step check function to authentication with user name and password.

 As another check function, there are multiple authentication factors shown below.
