Public Services will introduce an additional mandatory authentication factor from June 1
MOSCOW, Feb 10 – PRIME. “Gosuslugi” from June will introduce a mandatory additional factor for user authorization, said the head of the Ministry of Digital Development Maksut Shadayev.
Now Russians use a username and password to enter the portal, but this is not enough. As the minister explained, some users come up with simple passwords and are attacked.
To improve the protection system, Gosuslugi will gradually introduce another factor: an SMS message or additional authentication, the head of the department said.
The program will be launched on March 1, and by June 1, the additional factor will gradually become mandatory.
