Not Bad for a Cubicle has posted about location as an authentication factor.

I have come across a number of sites across the Internet that discuss why strong authentication is a good idea and many go into good detail (such as http://mongers.org/authentication , but I haven't ever seen a broad discussion of the reasons why in one place.

I certainly agree with many parts of the recent essay and the interview on Computer World by Bruce Schneier, but I think it misses on a few key points and borders on pandering for press.

buyability-and-usability

Today we turned on online purchasing for WiKID Strong Authentication licenses. It is a bit of an experiment in "buyability". A big hat tip to Dharmesh Shah's post on Usability vs. Buyability to clarify this point for me. We had focused on ease of use. We have provided ASP scripts that automate the two-factor roll-out process, for example and have an incredibly easy to use Web-interface on the WiKID server (IMHO - another hat tip to Brian Dame ;). We have attempted to take the risk out of buying WiKID by having an open-source version and by having a trial version of the commercial server available for download from the extranet. And we have set up a way to test the WiKID two-factor tokens without even providing an email address.

A great analogy: strong authentication is like Penicillin for your network security
