Claim of US Patent No. 10,367,817

1. A method of authentication, the method comprising:receiving, at an authenticator, an authentication request to access a resource, wherein the authentication request is generated by a requestor;
receiving, at a collaborator, a verification request to access the resource,
wherein the verification request is generated by the requestor and received from the requestor;
generating, at the collaborator, a participation message, wherein the participation message is generated in response to the verification request to access the resource received from the requestor and wherein the participation message is not generated in response to a challenge generated by the authenticator:
receiving, at the authenticator, the participation message generated by the collaborator in response to the verification request to access the resource generated by the requestor;
analyzing, at the authenticator computing device, the authentication request to access a resource and the participation message to determine whether the requestor should be granted access to the resource; and
granting the requesting user access to the resource when it is determined that the requesting user should be granted access to the resource based upon the analysis of the authentication request to access a resource and the participation message.
