Thanks to everybody for all the hard work. I would especially like to thank the various people that have done bug-testing, submitted patches and written documentation.

we-are-71

According to eSecurity Planet, the WiKID Strong Authentication System is number 71 of the top 75 Open Source Security Apps. Actually, the ranking seems to be random. We are one of two entries under the "User Authentication" section and the sections are listed alphabetically. So, if our category had been "Authentication", we would have been 12th, just after Anti-spyware. :)

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

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.
