Two-Factor Auth Using Authy

By Rey Bango

It feels like every day you read about a new security breach on a website, in many cases involving weak passwords. It’s a known fact that users are notoriously lax when it comes to choosing their passwords, so there needs to be a better way of providing secure logins to your site. That’s where two-factor security comes in. It aims to complement your existing login scheme by also providing an alternative verification method (generally a cellphone) to validate that a user is, who they say they are. It’s a scheme in use by top sites such as Twitter and GMail and has proven to be very reliable in minimizing intrusions via weak passwords.

Introduction to Express

By Raymond Camden

I enjoyed JavaScript on the client and using it on the server seemed fascinating. (Although not necessarily new. I’m old enough to remember when Netscape released SSJS back in the 90s.) I read a few tutorials, sat in a few sessions, and in general came away… unimpressed.
