What is a 2-Factor 2-Step or Authentication ?

Two-Factor Authentication, also known as 2FA or TFA or Two-Step Authentication is when a user provides two authentication factors; usually firstly a password and then a second layer of verification such as a code texted to their device, shared secret, physical token or biometrics.

12 factor app design principles

12 factor app design is a methodology for building modern, scalable, maintainable software-as-a-service applications.The methodology is suitable for modern cloud architecture and microservice based apps.

The Twelve-Factor app was published by Heroku co-founder Adam Wiggins in 2011 based on the development, operation and scaling witnessed on the Heroku platform. “Twelve Factor apps are built for agility and rapid deployment, enabling continuous delivery and reducing the time and cost for new developers to join a project. At the same time, they are architected to exploit the principles of modern cloud platforms while permitting maximum portability between them. Finally, they can scale up without significant changes to tooling, architecture or development practices,” the Heroku team wrote in a post

According to its website, the 12 factors are:
  • One codebase tracked in revision control, many deploys
  • Explicitly declare and isolate dependencies
  • Store config in the environment
  • Treat backing services as attached resources
  • Strictly separate build and run stages
  • Execute the app as one or more stateless processes
  • Export services via port binding
  • Scale out via the process model
  • Maximize robustness with fast startup and graceful shutdown
  • Keep development, staging and production as similar as possible
  • Treat logs as event streams
  • Run admin/management asks as one-off processes

WhatsApp launches new fact-checking feature

WhatsApp has launched a new feature called Tip Line, with which users can share rumours or unverified information and check on their authenticity. Users need to send such information to a number on WhatsApp (+91-9643000888).

This feature is being launched in collaboration with PROTO, a skilling start-up. The shared information will be verified by PROTO’s verification centre and the response will indicate if the shared information is true, false, misleading, disputed or out of scope. It will also review information in pictures or video links and is available in four regional languages — Hindi, Telugu, Bengali and Malayalam — in addition to English.

India aims for the moon again

India will make a second attempt to land on the moon by this month next year. Quoting sources, Times of India reports that ISRO began work on Chandrayaan-3 in October, by constituting multiple committees and sub-committees to evaluate various aspects of the mission. Chandrayaan-3 will consist of just a lander and rover – to make good Chandrayaan-2’s failed moon landing – as the orbiter from the previous mission is functioning satisfactorily. The top priority? "Strengthening the legs of the lander," so that it can dock even at high velocity.
