4 Key Steps to Automate IT Security Compliance
An unprecedented wave of security breaches has led to the establishment of technical standards, IT governance frameworks and laws designed to improve and

security mechanism  and other compliance and security needs. In a recent implementation, one enterprise was utilizing 57 different, paper-based standards for dealing with all the different operating systems and applications in use. A more efficient and effective compliance model would collect all these standards and controls in one electronic library, where they can be efficiently accessed, updated and shared by different compliance teams for different purposes. Instead of building and maintaining compliance checks for each

The Future of Secure Remote Password (SRP) Part Two: Overcoming Obstacles to Success


This article explores the possibilities for the Secure Remote Password (SRP) in today’s multi-channel world, specifically how it improves upon the inherent insecurity of password authentication and the obstacles to overcome to succeed.

security mechanism  incorporated into the Java Security package, making it easier for application developers to use SRP authentication mechanism in their applications. Summary For success, SRP authentication must meet two basic requirements. It must provide a strong alternative to the current password-based authentication mechanism in place and it must be readily available. It most definitely meets the first requirement, as stated earlier with its defense against dictionary attacks, use of temporary session keys, and non-tra Read More

Incident Handling and Response Capability: An IT Security Safeguard Part 1: Are You Ready to Support an Incident Response Capability?


The Internet has few boundaries, thus each business is required to build and implement their own safeguards. Unfortunately, most IT department's requests for security technology and training are turned down, UNTIL a system security incident occurs. This could be a costly mistake.

security mechanism  Response Capability: An IT Security Safeguard Part 1: Are You Ready to Support an Incident Response Capability? Situation An employee logs in at the beginning of the workday and notices the company website was defaced, who would be notified? Common sense dictates to call the IT department or perhaps the webmaster and the next course of action would probably be to take the website off-line, restore the original file, and put it back on-line. Would there be any type of investigation to determine the cause o Read More

Your Secrets Should Be Safe with Zoho Vault


Both individuals and businesses are becoming increasingly overwhelmed by passwords, because passwords are still the dominant form of user authentication. To manage their burgeoning password portfolios (especially those passwords that must change every once in a while due to corporate practices) users have developed poor practices by storing passwords in spreadsheets, text documents, and other

To automate the Web app login sequence, Zoho Vault features a direct, one-click login mechanism. Users are never required to type or copy and paste passwords to login to Web sites or applications. Instead, they can launch direct connections to all of their Web sites and applications from the Zoho Vault interface, without even viewing the password. Grouping of passwords and s Read More

The Future of Secure Remote Password (SRP)


The Secure Remote Password (SRP) holds great promise as a way to strongly authenticate a user without the usual risks of dictionary attack(s) faced by other password-based authentication schemes. Yet the industry de-facto standard remains the password-based authentication scheme. This article explores the possibilities for SRP in today’s multi-channel world, specifically how it improves upon the inherent insecurity of password authentication and the obstacles to overcome to succeed.

security mechanism  storage and suddenly the security of your system is compromised. SRP addresses this problem in two ways. First, it mandates that the password is never sent, plain text or otherwise, across the network. Second, the password is not stored at the server, but rather two pieces of information are stored a password verification base element and a verifier (a password-based public key), are stored. Multi-Channel Support Provides secure authentication mechanism for insecure network channels. Herein lies the great Read More
