The WiKID Blog

The WiKID Blog, musings on two-factor authentication, information security and some other stuff.

Google's "Two-Step Verification"

Kudos to Google for putting more security around their authentication for Google Apps. Apparently, two-step authentication will be coming to Gmail as well once they feel comfortable.

Software Tokens: Less expensive, easier to use.

So it has been quite a while since my post about the Security of Software Tokens.  In that post, I pointed out that using public key encryption eliminates the problem of securing the seed.  There is no seed.  I also pointed out that if you're concerned about malware, fight malware. 

Living up to "Two-factor Authentication that doesn't suck"

At the SecurityTwits Meetup during DefCon, James Arlen aka @myrcurial introduced me to someone as being from "WiKID Systems - two-factor authentication that doesn't suck". This is high praise.  The first question was "What doesn't suck about WiKID?".  While it was enough for James that we not be $3letterCompetitor, that's not enough for me.  I've really been thinking about what it means to not suck.

Secure (?) Internet access for DefCon/BlackHat/BsidesLV

Every year at DefCon there is a Wall of Sheep where the usernames and passwords for non-encrypted logins are posted and every year there are usernames and password on it.

iOS 4 struggles

The iOS 4 upgrade for the iPhone breaks the WiKID token.  We're looking into and hope to have something fixed shortly.
