HI Lisa,

Below is the new version edited by me. I fixed minor punctuation and grammatical problems. Note: During yesterday’s conference call, we all agreed to replace “legislative” with “legal”.

Essential steps of an authentication process, which rely upon recalling or copying information, have one of the following:
•     alternative essential steps, which do 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 a 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 legal requirements.

Subject: changes to the wording for accessible authentication

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
