    ARLB007 FCC to Require Two Factor Authentication for CORES Users

    The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has announced an

    upcoming change to the Commission Registration System (CORES) that

    licensees use to pay any application or regulatory fees, manage or

    reset a password on an existing FRN, or request a new FRN. Beginning

    March 29, 2024, multifactor authentication will be implemented.

    Users will be prompted to request a six-digit secondary verification

    code, which will be sent to the email address(es) associated with

    each username. The user will then need to enter the code into CORES

    before they can continue.

    In a public notice, the FCC said this change will make the system

    more secure. "This additional layer of security will further

    safeguard against unauthorized access, thereby enhancing the overall

    integrity of information contained within the CORES system and

    improving the security of user data," it read.

    The Public Notice can be found in PDF format at, .
