Implement Two-Factor Authentication

Postby coreyme » Fri Nov 11, 2011 7:17 pm

Two-Factor authentication is gaining in popularity, and it's a great security tool. From a financial perspective, time spent implementing it could be offset by time saved when user accounts aren't getting compromised and domains aren't being transferred fraudulently.

A couple ways it could be implemented:

1. Text a randomly generated number to a registered mobile device when a user logs in from an unrecognized computer / IP range.

2. Use the Google Authenticator PAM Module to allow Namecheap users to generate tokens on their smartphones via Google Authenticator.

I'd love to see Namecheap implement one of these options! Thanks.

Try TeleSign’s two-factor authentication product that has already processed more than 1 billion transactions while maintaining enterprise-level uptime, fully redundant on all hardware, network, and telecommunications layers and their voice prompts are already available in over 50 languages and can be further customized.

Would love to see Name Cheap, implement a two-factor either android based app or use google's api for their app. To me, a domain management account should be as secure or more secure than a financial backing account.
