The Army is looking for alternatives to its current multi-factor authentication process in an effort to keep its online resources accessible while maintaining high security, according to a recent news release.

Two alternatives under consideration include an authentication app that can be downloaded to a mobile device, and a pre-registered device known as a Yubikey. Both are in testing; an app prototype will be available this fall, and Yubikey user and field testing will begin in May. Read more at Army.mil.
