Hi I need to decide if it is ready for wcag. If i do not hear and objections i will update the wording on github (with the exception)




Gregg, you can read about the techniques, bio-metrics etc, in the issue paper and github issue. Experts have been consulted.

All the best

hmmmm

I like it 


but we need to talk to authentication experts — and have examples of techniques for doing this. 


If we have two factor authentication required (Which is good)  does this remove one of the factors?  


what you are    (biometrics)
what you have   (Key or card or token or  phone etc)
what you know    (password etc) 



Does this removed #3?     would that require other factors be relied upon? 




What are the techniques for this SC?

Sorry I am finding the one sentence is a mouthful! Are we allowed to break it up?
 
“Essential steps of an authentication process, which rely upon recalling or copying information, have alternative essential steps as well as an authentication-credentials reset process. Neither process should rely upon recalling and copying information.”

Subject: Accessible Authentication SC: new language; vote +1 or -1


 
Hi All,
 
Based upon recent efforts by Mike Pluke, Lisa, and I, the below is new language we hope everyone will find acceptable.
 
“Essential steps of an authentication process, which rely upon recalling or copying information, have alternative essential steps, and an authentication-credentials reset process, which do not rely upon recalling and copying information.”
 
Please vote +1 or -1.
