How 2X Digi-Access™ Improves User Security

Understanding what a 2X Digi-Access™ certificate is used for

The 2X Digi-Access™ certificate offers what is called 'two factor authentication'. In the standard version of the 2X Application Server, you login with a username and password. The username and password is 'something you know' and this is single factor authentication.

In the Digi-Access™ version of the 2X Application Server, in addition to a username and password, to login you must also have a Digi-Access™ certificate. The Digi-Access™ certificate is 'something you have' and this adds a second layer of security known as two factor authentication.

Getting a 2X Digi-Access™ certificate takes three simple steps. The most important of these is the very first step.

The Importance of the Enrolment Form

In the first step, users are directed to the 2X Digi-Access™ enrolment page where they must complete a simple online web form.

This web form has a help button opposite every field that offers assistance and advice so that users correctly complete each field on the form.

Important:- Users must complete this form accurately with their correct personal information. Failure to complete this form correctly, may mean that the Digi-Access™ certificate is not correctly configured and the user may also have to repeat the process.
