re: Keep Watch On Accounts For Stolen Passwords
I agree that two-factor authentication bolsters security. Even that though has its flaws. For example the recent situation where the Google Apps' account recovery feature was exploited to hijack the account of the CEO of CloudFlare. That attack succeeded because -the attackers were able to fool AT&T into forwarding his voicemail to another account.

re: Keep Watch On Accounts For Stolen Passwords


I have been a
strong supporter of 2FA for some time now, and I wish these sites and ones like
them would be more security conscious, not just say they are. They need to
prove it by actions, not words. -It would
be great to see them, just as so many other leading companies in their
respective verticals are doing by giving us the perfect balance between security
and user experience and moving to the use of 2FA (two-factor authentication) whether
mobile or other, as a form of a token where the user is asked to telesign into
their account by entering a one-time PIN code which is delivered to your phone
via SMS or voice. I enjoyed your article. These organizations need to start
being held responsible for their actions, and only way that will happen is if
we as user voice our opinion.

The issue is it is time to move away from PW for most access control. the right choice is to use the TPM in your PC. Does SSL IPSEC, 802.1x, windows domain, Smart card emulation today.
You already have one in your business PC
It's industry standard
and it's very inexpensive to use 1/2 to 1/3 the cost of tokens

Only Known devices on the network is what makes it so cheap to run a carrier or a cable company compared to an enterprise thin 50 per year not 1000 per year for known devices with whitelisted software.
