applications use username/password combination for authentication
access. However, some applications use username/pin combination as
well. My question is in what scenarios we should use username/password,
and in what scenarios we should use username/pin when we design the
authentication method? My observation is that pin usually is numeric
only, but password can contain both letters and numbers.
Please advice and discuss.
Re: password versus pin in application authentication
...it depends on what the pin is. Sometimes a pin is a keyfob etc...in this
case the pin changes everytime it is used for changed based on time. These
are very secure...especially if they are not tied to a computer (keyfob)...
