Legacy Single Sign-On: Novell, Evidian, IBM, PassGo, or Computer Associates?


As the complexity of enterprise systems increases, users are often forced to remember more and more passwords. As the demand on users increases, many users choose to write down their passwords, and by doing so, jeopardize security.

password synchronization  so important is that password synchronization dramatically weakens security. For example, suppose that a user within an organization had ten different applications that required individual passwords. If this organization were to implement a form of single sign-on that relied on password synchronization, then each of these ten applications would have the same password as the user''s primary network authentication password. This means that if someone were to figure out the password, e.g. through a sniffer Read More

Wetmetrics


The Internet is having an identity crisis. Long regarded as a powerful tool for cost reduction and service enhancement, the Internet is falling short of its promise because of the real and perceived threat of identity theft. Financial losses and insurance costs are mounting, as organizations struggle to protect their information perimeters and improve the strength of their authentication systems to ensure that the authorized user is present during the sign-in process. The widespread use and misuse of passwords as authentication tokens is generally cited as a cause of the accelerating erosion of user confidence and the increasing incidence of identity theft. It is generally agreed that passwords are not enough. Much has been lost, however, in the race toward person-present authentication systems. While the application of passwords is fraught with risk, the introduction of complex authentication infrastructures and cumbersome end user technology has eroded usability and increased the cost of security dramatically. This paper describes a new authentication approach that retains the simplicity and low cost of passwords, while gracefully introducing as much person-present assurance as is required by the application.
