    What is phishing resistant MFA?

    Phishing-resistant multi-factor authentication (MFA) refers to an authentication process that is virtually immune to sophisticated attacks that can intercept or trick users into revealing access information.

    Only two authentication technologies meet the phishing-resistant MFA mark*

    • The federal government’s Personal Identity Verification (PIV) standard/SmartCard
    • The modern FIDO2/WebAuthn standard

    *Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 & NIST SP 800-63B
