Strong Authentication means a procedure for the validation of the identification of a natural or legal person based on the use of two or more elements categorized as:
knowledge, possession, inherence.
These elements must be independent, in that the breach of one does not compromise the reliability of the others and is designed in such a way as to protect the confidentiality of the authentication data.
