What makes e-mail trustworthy?

Can Authentication Restore Trust in E-Mail?

Is identity theft on the rise, or is it a problem that has been vastly overhyped? Recent incidents of lost or stolen laptops have focused public attention on the huge amount of personal information that can very easily make its way outside the control of corporate IT.

IT Security: Take a Walk on the Dark Side

Darknets, Greynets. Dark traffic. The words are frightening. The reality behind them is even more frightening. Increasingly clever hackers, thieves and scoundrels are using the Internet, peer-to-peer products, instant messaging and e-mail to wreak havoc, in ways and for purposes never before seen. Their motivation is clear: They want money, and lots of it. Worst of all, they prey on human nature -- and business infrastructure -- to do their dirty work for them...

Identity Management Comes of Age

The past several weeks have seen an onslaught of articles regarding privacy, identity and security. Most of them bemoan the fact that we all have too many passwords, they are difficult and costly to manage, and that "there must be a better way!"
