What is 2FA
Two-Factor Authentication (or 2FA as it often referred to) is an extra layer of security that is used to provide users an additional level of protection when securing access to an account.
Employing a 2FA mechanism is a vast improvement in security over the Singe-Factor Authentication method of simply employing a username and password. Using this method, accounts that have 2FA enabled, require the user to enter a one-time passcode that is generated by an external application. The 2FA passcode (usually a six-digit number) is required to be input into the passcode field before access is granted. The 2FA input is usually required directly after the username and password are entered by the client.

Google's TPU's being primed for the Quantum Jump

The liquid-cooled Tensor Processing Units, built to slot into server racks, can deliver up to 100 petaflops of compute.

As the world is gearing towards more automation and AI, the need for quantum computing has also grown exponentially. Quantum computing lies at the intersection of quantum physics and high-end computer technology, and in more than one way, hold the key to our AI-driven future.

Quantum computing requires state-of-the-art tools to perform high-end computing. This is where TPUs come in handy. TPUs or Tensor Processing Units are custom-built ASICs (Application Specific Integrated Circuits) to execute machine learning tasks efficiently. TPUs are specific hardware developed by Google for neural network machine learning, specially customised to Google’s Machine Learning software, Tensorflow.

The liquid-cooled Tensor Processing units, built to slot into server racks, can deliver up to 100 petaflops of compute. It powers Google products like Google Search, Gmail, Google Photos and Google Cloud AI APIs.

Google's Authenticator App Explained and Reviewed

Such a cool-sounding term, I had to find out its meaning and purpose. So here is the story.

Let’s take the story step-wise. You should have heard by now of 2-FA, two-factor authentication. The base idea is pretty simple. Apart from just the password, many of the websites might be sending you an OTP on the phone to grant access. That summarises the two factors. Your password is factor one, and possession of your phone number is factor 2. But just for curious people, I will share some knowledge.

Multi-Factor Authentication

In information security, we have three main pillars to verify someone’s identity.

  • **Knowledge: **Something only the user knows
  • **Possession: **Something only the user has
  • Inherence: Something only the user is

Withdrawing money from ATM checks _possession _of ATM card and knowledge of the PIN. Encashing a cheque checks possession of the cheque book and inherence to the user’s signature. Attendance in my college lectures needs inherence to fingerprint and possession of the ID card. Writing proxy attendance in attendance sheet requires knowledge of friend’s roll number and _inherence _of the fake signature of your friend. You get the idea where it’s going.

Two-Factor authentication, as most of the examples above, is about combining the methods from 2 separate domains. It is different from Two-Step authentication, which can be just a password and a pin, both from the _knowledge _domain.

Where does Google Authenticator come in?

Many secure websites recommend, even enforce you, to use such two factors. More than often, the possession part is your phone number.

But waiting for OTP can be troublesome, especially in a place with poor networking. Many people may be stuck in places that do have good WiFi, internet connectivity but horrible cellular coverage. Like any place in the new CSE building of my college or even Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport in rush hours.

Why so many worries, right? If we just wanted to prove the possession of something, can’t we show the possession of our phone? Something that we always have. And more than often is the device we are using to log in to the website. This is the idea behind Google Authenticator.

How does it work?

At the time of first account creation, if you choose the authenticator app option in the available list, they will provide you with a QR code, which is the main secret that will remain shared between your phone and the website. You should print this QR code and keep it hidden in your cupboard or somewhere you can be safe about. Why? We will come to that later.

Ease of use

This secret that is shared through QR is more than often 16+ length of a random string. So are you supposed to type in every time? That will not only make it tough but also make the string knowledge than possession.

Instead, what the app does for you is taking this secret key and the current time as inputs, it generates a new OTP for you which is a 6–8 digit number that you can type in. This OTP is regenerated in 30 seconds and older OTP expires.

A Cyber hacker has to guess the OTP in a small time window. Anything later than that and the OTP will expire. This will not only prevent the entry but also warn the user through email about his password being compromised.

Adding Google Authentication In .Net Core Application Without Identity The Basics

Having a flexibility of creating a login logic can have many benefits to enjoy your self logic on to the application for authorization. So today here we will get the idea of going through Google Authentication in a .Net Core Application on a step wise process.

Note: The demonstration does not contains full application scenario (Complete Application) but have all the basic details needed which can be used to handle the details with self logic for your application needs.

Part 1 : Google Console Setup

First we need to have Google Client Id And Google Client Secret so for the purpose,

Login To Google Console and create a new New Project as

Now we need to enter a project name so as to distinguish each application, the organization field can be left as it is if you don’t want to have any organization.

Now, we need to move to Credentials menu as per the image below

Since we are creating an application for the first time we need to Configure Consent Screen which will be displayed when user chooses to login through Google.

Now, once we click on the button the below screen is displayed not choose External since the application is for any external users and click on Create.

Now, we need to enter a App Name and support and developer email address to create an app, the app creation and its use is shown below

Now, since we are doing the work with minimum configuration we can save and continue until the last, if you want to explore more every step will be presented with very descriptive details on the portal itself.

Here the app creation concludes now we need to move to credentials menu and create a OAuth Client ID as per the image below

Now we need to configure by choosing Application Type as Web Application and a client name as in the image below. Now Authorized Redirect URLs are the URL used for the redirection of the Google Authentication after success or failed attempt. The URL must be application URL. Since we are using ta local application we have used local urls.

Once clicked on Create we will be presented with the Client Id and Client Secret Id

Now we have completed the setup part on the Google Portal and have got the required

  1. Client Id
  2. Client Secret

What Are Google Compute Engine ? - Explained

The Google computer engine exchanges a large number of scalable virtual machines to serve as clusters used for that purpose. GCE can be managed through a RESTful API, command line interface, or web console. The computing engine is serviced for a minimum of 10-minutes per use. There is no up or front fee or time commitment. GCE competes with Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and Microsoft Azure.
