TPDP Episode #25: Securing Applications With A Second Factor Of Authentication

TwitterFacebookRedditLinkedInHacker News

I am pleased to announce that the latest episode of The Polyglot Developer Podcast is now available on pretty much every popular podcast network. This episode, which is episode 25 of the show, is all about two-factor authentication (2FA) and the things you should be familiar with when it comes to implementing it in your web applications.

In this episode titled, Securing Applications with a Second Factor of Authentication, I’m joined by Luke Walker who is a Solutions Architect at Yubico. In case you’re unfamiliar, Yubico creates the very popular YubiKey which is often featured on technology news outlets as being an incredible hardware token for protecting users from malicious circumstances.

When it comes to 2FA, there are many approaches. These approaches can consist of SMS, push notifications, time-based one-time passwords, U2F, or even the new FIDO2. If you’re interested in learning about each, this episode of the podcast should give you some insight before you try to implement them.

As previously mentioned, the podcast is available on pretty much every popular podcast network. This includes Pocket Casts, iTunes, and many others. However, if you’d like to hear it here, it can be found below.

If you have any questions for Luke or myself, we can both be found on Twitter. To contact Luke, his Twitter handle is @elukewalker and mine is @nraboy.

If you feel like there was a topic around two-factor authentication (2FA) that we didn’t cover in the show, ask about it in the comments of this particular article. We can see about clearing things up for you in the responses.
