Lance James at Secure Science has screen shots of the phish attack against CitiBank's business site that uses a hardware token one-time password system. You can see them on WaPo's Security Fix Blog.

For some reason, I really enjoyed this impromptu review of image-based "multi-factor authentication". These image-based site authentication tools are sadly mislabeled as two-factor authentication, which is a personal cocktail party tragedy for me:

I had the pleasure to attend the recent security summit at the Georgia Tech Information Security Center (webcast is available, but only if you have quicktime and IE7 apparently, which ain't me) and getting to hear Vint Cerf and a very strong group of panelists. Here are my take-aways:

  • When you sell your company for big bucks, you get to be on panels at colleges. Maybe this is because the event was held in the Chris Klaus building.
  • The internet needs better, stronger authentication - and not just the user, but better Damballa a local Atlanta start-up spun out of Georgia Tech to help ISPs address the bot problem. Good luck to those guys. Seems like cool technology.

The latest WiKID token client supports French and Dutch, because phishing is not just for English speakers ;).
