Smart card versus authenticator app

 

The Personal Identity Verification (PIV) card is used in non-military government agencies for authentication and identification to gain access to systems, networks, and online resources. These cards, in combination with a personal identification number, meet two-factor requirements. PIV credentials also are designed to help reduce counterfeiting and are tamper-resistant.

An authenticator app, such as Google Authenticator, is another method to achieve two-factor authentication. It is a free app available for installation on mobile devices.

The U.S. federal government authorizes the use of PIVs as well as authenticator apps, depending on the circumstances.

  1. In what type of situation would an authenticator app provide adequate two-factor authentication for federal government use? Provide rationale or a citation for your answer.
  2. In what type of situation would a PIV be required for federal government use? Provide rationale or a citation for your answer.
