The user authentication solution refers to verification of a wide range of transfers of human to machine credentials which require the authenticity of the user for confirmation. In contrast the term machine authentication refers to automated process which does not require a human input. User authentication is required in all human to computer interaction other than automatically and guest logged in to a particular account. The authentication authorizes human to machine interaction on wireless and wired networks so that the system can provide access to internet and network connected resources and systems. There has been significant advancement in the field of user authentication. Traditionally the user authentication involved a password combination and simple ID. Now there are a wide range of user authentication factors which has been included for the improvement and enhancement of security in the communications.
The user authentication solution market by authentication factor could be segmented into possession factors, knowledge factors and inherence factors. The knowledge factor require the user to have a certain exclusive knowledge which may include ID password and User names or pin number which is exclusively known by the user fall under this category. Possession factor include all the attributed which the user needs to possess in order to log in. Some of the possession factors may include smart phone apps, key fobs, SIM Card and employee ID card among others. Inherence factor include different inherent traits which the user require for the confirmation of the user login. The inherence factors may include component like retina scans, biometrics, finger vein scans, fingerprint scans, voice recognition and facial recognition among others. The knowledge factors segment in the authentication solution market segmented by authentication factor held the largest share in the authentication solution market in term of revenue share. Knowledge factor is most widely used for the user authentication by users thus resulting in this high revenue share.
The user authentication solution market by type has been segmented into single factor authentication and two factor authentication. The two factor segment in the user authentication solution market segmented by type held the largest market share in terms of revenue. The two factor authentication products could be divided into token or a hardware and software which recognizes and authenticates a particular individual at the time of logging in.
