After the coga call last night I made two changes.
1. I added the exception  if this is not possible with current legislative requirements (Jons request on wcag)
2. I changed an "and" to an "or" however this then required more of a rewrite to "on of the following, because otherwise it was ambiguous


please update you survey response if this has helped you at https://www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/35422/COGA_Auth/results




 old wording:


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.
 There is an exception for basic identifying information that the user has easy access to, such as: name, address, email address and identification or social security number.
   
("and" that was changed is in bold)
new wording :
Essential steps of an authentication process, which rely upon recalling or copying information have one of the following:
alternative essential steps which does not rely upon recalling and copying information, or
 an authentication-credentials reset process, which does not rely upon recalling and copying information
There is an exception for basic identifying information that the user has easy access to, such as: name, address, email address and identification or social security number. 
 
There is an exception when this is not achievable due to legislative requirements.   














All the best
