GroupID provides a pool bank of pre-defined security questions. The pool can be modified by adding or removing questions from it.
Security questions in the GroupID pool bank are available to all identity stores and can be included while creating or modifying an identity store.
GroupID provides multiple authentication types for multifactor authentication and second factor authentication. Security questions is one of them.
When an identity store is created, four questions from the question pool bank are automatically added to the new identity store’s local pool. Questions can be added and removed from the local pool. Identity store users can select questions from the local pool and provide answers to those questions for enrollment and authentication.
