Key distinctions this presentation will address are the differences between identity authentication and verification. Identity verification typically equates to logging in with LMS credentials. This is an insecure form of verification that can be defined as a single factor component that relies on seeing the same person consistently return.

Frictionless authentication aims to verify that the correct individual is participating by using a multifactor approach, requiring something students have, something they are and something they know.

Take-­away: This analysis will tie in how, and possible reasons why, fraud is growing in online programs across the United States and what institutions can do to combat it.
