Authentication

In computer security, Authentication is the process of attempting to verify the digital identity of the sender of a communication such as a request to log in. The sender being authenticated may be a person using a computer, a computer itself or a computer program. A blind credential, in contrast, does not establish identity at all, but only a narrow right or status of the user or program.

White Paper Published By: Arcot     Published Date: Jun 04, 2008
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.

White Paper Published By: Netwrix     Published Date: Apr 22, 2008
Password practices that improve security are by their nature burdensome to the user, resulting in passwords difficult to remember which are often changed about the same time they have finally become memorized. Yet password security remains a cornerstone of system security: as much as 80% of security breaches take place not through arcane hacking and virus attacks, but through system infiltration facilitated by use of a password.

For over a decade now, RADIUS servers have been a mainstay of dial-up and VPN access control. The rather inconspicuous RADIUS server, perhaps better known as that beige, general-purpose PC collecting dust in the corner of your data center, has proved sufficient for performing basic duties like validating passwords and granting network access.

White Paper Published By: Identity Engines     Published Date: Mar 24, 2008
Guests, contractors, vendors, business partners, and other temporary users require and expect certain level of network access within organizations that they visit. Corporate network access has been typically open; internal LAN connections have seldom required authentication. Today however, regulatory and other security concerns demand that organizations adopt a more secure posture towards these short-term users.

With so much of today's commerce being conducted electronically, providing staff with internet access has become a business necessity. The improper use of e-mail and instant messengers can lead to extremely expensive lawsuits, and the proliferation of mobile devices has made it considerably easier for errant employees to steal sensitive information. This white paper will detail the risks to which organizations that do not monitor their employees are exposed and explain the right way for organizations to go about monitoring.
