We present a secure two-factor authentication (TFA) scheme based on the possession by the user of a password and a crypto-capable device. Security is end-to-end" in the sense that the attacker can attack all parts of the system, including all communication links and any subset of parties (servers, devices, client terminals), can learn users' passwords, and perform active and passive attacks, online and oine. In all cases the scheme provides the highest attainable security bounds given the set

Our solution builds a TFA scheme using any Device-Enhanced PAKE, dened by Jarecki et al., and any Short Authenticated String (SAS) Message Authentication, dened by Vaudenay. We show an ecient instantiation of this modular construction which utilizes any password-based client-server authentication method, with or without reliance on public-key infrastructure. The security of the proposed scheme is proven in a formal model that we formulate as an extension of the traditional PAKE model. We also report on a prototype implementation of our schemes, including TLS-based and PKI-free variants, as well as several instantiations of the SAS mechanism, all demonstrating the practicality of our approach.
