Course Description

MFA from an DFIR view!

In this NCAM weekly challenge, you will analyze a web server log reviewing an MFA attempt. This challenge aims to look beyond the basics of MFA being a recommendation and critically examine why proper implementation is also essential. We all know that MFA is an excellent security control, but let’s see why it is vital to implement it correctly!

1.) How is the application verifying the user? 2.) What is the value the user is submitting? 3.) How could a user capture this information? 4.) What is the bypass being used?
