Our 6pm (US ET) talk on Thursday July 5 will be a “Multi-Factor Authentication in ColdFusion”, with Denard Springle.

(I know it’s been quite a while since our last CFMeetup. We’re ‘back on the air’ and I have several more presenters already lined up for July. More news to come soon.)

TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)

Over the years authentication schemes have changed drastically from the old days of username and password logins. Today, there are multiple kinds of multi-factor authentication mechanisms in use that add complexity and security to your login processes. We’ll explore some of these newer authentication techniques and show you how to easily implement a secure authentication process in every application you write. We’ll also cover basic PCI compliance, encryption, obfuscation, and access control lists along with password security, password recovery, session management and other topics that relate to building a robust authentication system.


DURATION: Approx. 1 hour

RECORDING: All meetings are recorded. The URL will be posted after meeting at
