Why the Industry is Moving Toward KBA Alternatives

Knowledge-based verification (KBV), also referred to as knowledge-based authentication (KBA), involves verifying someone is who they say they by asking a series of questions. KBA/KBV systems often ask users about past addresses or credit history data.

However, recent security issues have made KBA/KBV systems susceptible to cybercriminals, creating the need for KBA alternatives. These new methods protect against the flaws of traditional KBV/KBA solutions, including the prevalence of personal information on the dark web.
