The relevance of the study is due to the growing pace of the introduction of multi-factor authentication mechanisms in web applications, the popularization of web technologies, as well as the lack of specific standards in the Russian Federation that describe the operation of multi-factor authentication technologies and establish requirements for web applications that use this technology. The work discusses existing authentication technologies and protocols both in a general form and in terms of authentication in web applications, considers the sequential operation of HTTP 1.0, 1.1 standard protocols, and their advantages and disadvantages are noted. Combinations of authentication factors used in the development of multi-factor authentication mechanisms were considered and correlated with existing authentication protocols. Based on the study, a classification of multifactor authentication technologies in web applications was proposed. The purpose of this study is a general analysis of authentication methods used in web applications, a comparative analysis of authentication protocols in web applications, classification of multifactor authentication technologies in order to highlight the most significant parameters for authentication systems and protocols, and then determine the rationality of using multifactor authentication in one or another web application. The materials of the work are of theoretical value for further research in this area
