Providing access to a mobile user session in a manner that more closely corresponds access to network resources to the trustworthiness of authentication methods and devices associated with the mobile user session. Characteristics of authentication methods associated with a mobile user session are synthesized to generate an authentication bundle. Characteristics may include data associated with passwords, biometric data or devices used to execute an authentication method. By synthesizing characteristics in varied manners, a non-binary sliding scale of access to network resources may be generated. An authentication bundle may be accessed to grant a mobile user session appropriate access to network resources. Granting access may include generating an authorization token that is passed to a filter or reverse proxy. Access to network resources may be dynamically modified as authentication methods associated with a mobile user session change.
