As digital business evolves, however, we’re finding that the best form of security and enablement will likely remove any real responsibility from users. They will not be required to carry tokens, recall passwords or execute on any security routines. Leveraging machine learning, artificial intelligence, device identity and other technologies will make security stronger, yet far more transparent. From a security standpoint, this will lead to better outcomes for enterprises in terms of breach prevention and data protection. Just as important, however, it will enable authorized users in new ways. They will be able to access the networks, data and collaboration tools they need without friction, saving time and frustration. More time drives increased employee productivity and frictionless access to critical data leads to business agility. Leveraging cloud, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructures, enterprises will be able to transform key metrics such as productivity, profitabilit
OAuth ist ein relativ neuer Webstandard zur Autorisierung des eingeschränkten Zugriffs auf Anwendungen und Daten. Er sorgt dafür, dass Anwender Drittanbieterkunden, etwa Fotodruckwebseiten, eingeschränkten Zugriff auf ihre Ressourcen gewähren können, z. B. auf Bilder auf Webseiten wie Flickr oder SmugMug. Bisher forderte der Client den Anwender üblicherweise zur Eingabe von Anwenderrnamen und Passwort auf – eine täuschend einfache Bitte, die ein inakzeptables Security-Risiko birgt. OAuth bietet im Gegensatz dazu ein Modell der geringstmöglichen Zugriffsrechte. Anwender können dabei mithilfe eines funktional begrenzten Tokens eingeschränkten Zugriff auf ihre Anwendungen und Daten gewähren.
Whether it's a smartcard for physical and logical access, soft tokens on a mobile device, or a unique grid card for strong authentication to a VPN, organizations can consolidate all authentication processes with a single, proven solution.
One of the most secure and simple-to-use methods for strong authentication is achieved via multipurpose smartcards. Unfortunately, many smartcard solutions require too many point products, are complex and place a heavy burden on IT.
If your company relies on passwords to prevent unauthorized computer access, or low-tech memory cards (e.g., swipe cards) for facility access, you have security on par with the average 1980s car. Smart credentials — embedded in plastic smartcards, USB tokens or mobile devices — offer companies advanced and versatile user authentication features.
This white paper discusses the advantages of using smart credentials for multifunction access; describes the hardware and software components used in a smart credential environment; and provides questions to ask when searching for a smart credential solution provider.

Identity theft is a major obstacle financial organizations must overcome to maximize the potential of online banking. USB strong authentication tokens with built-in smartcard technology combat identity theft and fraud, while helping banks meet regulatory compliance.
Historically, before computers and the Internet, business transactions were conducted face to face; establishing your partner's identity in such situations presented few problems. As human beings, we are well equipped to discern the extraorginarily subtle variations of the human face and voice to enable positive recognition and identification of our partner.
Authentication technologies such as tokens and smart cards help meet the challenges of protecting sensitive data and securing application access. This white paper presents four cases in which an identity-based solution provides a compelling, low-cost alternative or complement to strong authentication technologies.

This paper details the processes by which ProofMark tags electronic records with a self-validating cryptographic seal that acts as a "tamper indicator" based on a true and provable time-reference datum. With this it is able to provide instantaneous and irrefutable proof of authenticity, no matter where the data resides or who has controlled it.

Read this paper and learn the principles that are prerequisites to enforceable electronic agreements as required by existing legal standards and electronic signature legislation. This paper will also specify sixteen measurement criteria that can be used as metrics to assess whether the architecture of an electronic transaction will meet the requirements of admissibility.
In the past, authentication solutions were either easy to use and inexpensive, but insecure (such as username/password) or very secure but expensive or difficult to implement (such as OTP tokens and smart cards). Arcot offers a third option: WebFort, a software-only, two-factor authentication solution. It delivers the right balance of cost, convenience, and strength.
Solutions including one-time-password (OTP) generator tokens, do not offer the same level of protection as the ArcotID against attacks such as the man-in-the-middle attack. The ArcotID secure software credential provides protection against common Internet threats and several futuristic attacks that are becoming popular among fraudsters.
Man-in-the-Middle attacks can defeat most kinds of multi-factor authentication, including OTP tokens. Financial institutions, brokerages, and other likely targets of MITM attacks should consider the ability of their countermeasures to defeat MITM attacks, as these types of attacks will continue.
This paper explores the use of tokenization as a best practice in improving the security of credit card transactions, while at the same time minimizing the headaches and angst associated with PCI DSS compliance.
