Two step verification or authentication (2FA) for online services is fairly common. How about 2FA for Windows machine logins? Windows machines like desktops, laptops, servers, POS etc. could be compromised via a password hack or breach.
I have seen only a very few solution in the market, mostly aimed at enterprises. Is there a 2FA solution for security and privacy conscious consumers as well as small to medium sized businesses that operate Windows machines (on-premises or cloud based)? The solution should work for both physical as well as remote login.
If there is no viable solution, i am willing to put some time to start a side/open-source project for this. I envision a plugin or middleware that once installed will trigger 2FA during the Windows login.
Do you think this is something you or people you know will use? Is there even a need for this thing in the first place? Your answers are most welcome.
