In this time and age, technology is on an ever-developing trend, bringing with it a plethora of new advancements to daily life and common activities, but with these advancements, a whole new set of issues and vulnerabilities become present. This paper aims to discuss and propose a solution to the vulnerability of physical security lockers, a facet of security that many organisations tend to neglect. It aims to provide an elevated level of security for companies who use physical lockers to secure sensitive information or important contents. More specifically, the paper discusses the plausibility and the advantage of utilising multi-factor authentication with dynamic passwords or OTP code for short and facial recognition to access physical lockers. The proposed system will require employees to have accounts in their respective locker by entering their respective ID and passing the facial recognition feature. The system will then provide the employee with an OTP code, allowing the company an extra layer of security from intruders or malicious individuals.

Keywords: physical locker security, sensitive information, multi-factor authentication, facial recognition, OTP.
