We previously announced our proof-of-concept for adding two-factor authentication to Google Apps. We have published How to add two-factor authentication to Google Apps over on Howtoforge. Check it out.

Hat tip to Chris Walsh at Emergent Chaos on the Debian server compromise. No information on wheter it was an authentication attack, like the last time in 2003.

One of the new features of the the 3.0 release of the WiKID Strong Authentication System is support for MS-CHAPV2, which is required for PPTP. Now that it's in there, we have published a how-to on integrating two-factor authentication from WiKID and Poptop, the popular open source Linux-baed PPTP VPN server.

We got a nice mention at the InfoSec Conference in Orlando by Matthew Luallen, president of consulting firm Sph3r3:

“The WiKiD Strong Authentication Server is a two-factor authentication server,” said Luallen, referencing ones he thought among the most useful . Among other great security tools there for the asking are SpamAssassin, which can identify spam, Splunk for log analysis, NTop for anomaly detection, TrueCrypt for encrypting data at rest, and the penetration-testing tool BackTrack. He said all are examples of useful security tools that companies should consider securing enterprise networks.
That's good company! We'll be sending Mathew the secret prize that everyone who mentions WiKID at a conference or in an article gets. It's very special and the only way to find out what it is is, of course, to mention WiKID (positively) in a speach or article.

It's great to get noticed, especially when you're number 4 and the project in front of you is Sourcefire.

Recent regulatory changes have heightened interest in two-factor authentication systems for corporate security and online banking. WiKID uses open-source software and everyday cell phones, PDAs, and other handheld devices to generate one-time passwords that are as secure (and more convenient) as hardware tokens. Price: $10 per person per year and up.
I'm pretty sure that both Vyatta, and Untangle support Radius, so you could easily combine WiKID with one of the top two for a very tight, low cost, remote access security solution.
