Han Dong, Senior Product Marketing Manager, User Authentication

It's a good thing that people much smarter than me are thinking about the future of the internet, cloud computing, and ensuring I'm properly indoctrinated on the right social networking sites du jour. More importantly, these same smart people are constantly thinking about really critical things, like 'standards', 'interoperability', and 'security'. Guys like Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the Web and HTML, Paul Mockapetris, the inventor of DNS, and Vinton Cerf, the father of the internet and co-designer of TCP/IP, are constantly analyzing what's happening today and thinking about what's coming in the future. These people are part of the founding fathers of the web, the internet, and how all the...

Han Dong, Senior Product Marketing Manager, User Authentication

Some thoughts on a couple of recent articles, one from Gartner Research: Where Strong Authentication Fails and What You Can Do About It, by Avivah Litan and a similar article by Jaikumar Vijayan in Computerworld, which also references Ms. Litan's article.

The basic idea presented in these two articles is that "one-time passwords...are no longer enough to protect online banking transactions against fraud." These one-time password (OTP) token-based two-factor authentication methods may be compromised by man-in-the-browser malware that overwrites the user transactions to steal their assets. So the...

Did you catch it on the tube last night?
Did you see the VeriSign Identity Protection Access for Mobile credential in action?

In case you missed it, check out the link on YouTube (0:21)

As for how this relates to you, me and your everyday secret agent, I think this fun video demonstrates the need for leveraging One-Time Passwords for strong authentication of your mobile applications. Yes, we have an "app" for that.

Kudos to our esteemed Product Manager, Erica Huang, and her efforts to have VeriSign included in the AT&T commercial.

Han Dong, Sr. Product Marketing Manager, User Authentication

Getting noticed is a hard thing. But when you do get recognized by adoring fans, it's like living the life of a beauty queen.

And just look at who noticed us: CrackBerry.com and BlackBerry Cool

So you ask, what's the news?
We all know that VeriSign Identity Protection (VIP) Access for mobile has already been available for free on Blackberry® smartphones and downloadable from...

Han Dong, Sr. Product Marketing Manager, User Authentication

Greetings VIP Blog fans,

I'm here at the 2009 Gartner Identity & Access Management (IAM) Summit. The day started off with a keynote presented by Earl Perkins, one of the lead Gartner analysts who explained how much IAM has evolved over the years - highlighting the fact that there are several IAM lifecycle elements (Planning, Process, and Problems) to consider and several key business drivers (improving security, reducing risk, and meeting regulatory requirements) in deploying an IAM solution. And at the end of the day, four of the analysts presented as a panel and reviewed the 2009 "...

By Yohai Einav, VeriSign Senior Fraud Analyst

I was on my way to the airport, chatting with my cab driver. After I told him my overused joke about the peasant, the seigneur and the miraculous goat, he asked me for my profession. "Oh, fraud?", he said. "You know, I almost lost $7,000 to card fraud last year".

So the sanguine driver told me how his bank called him, warning him he had gone into overdraft. When he investigated this he found that his Visa card had recently been charged with $6,000. He called Visa, and they told him - "Sir, didn't you make two £1,500 transactions in London two weeks ago?"

No, he was never in London. No, he rarely uses the British Pound in Israel.

"Time out", I said. "Credit card issuers know that this could happen, and no way could these two transactions have passed without Visa noticing them". Firstly, the amounts were high, and secondly, the driver's card had a consistent pattern of transactions in only one...

Posted by Vijai Shankar, Sr. Product Marketing Manager at VeriSign, Inc.

I posted earlier today about the difficulty in remembering passwords, security questions, our daily tasks etc. and mentioning consumers to ask organizations to introduce secure, yet painless authentication methods. Here's another incentive for organizations to make life easy yet secure for consumers at a lower cost. VeriSign is now offering up to 5,000 FREE CREDENTIALS to each organization joining the VeriSign Identity Protection Network by Sept 30, 2008. This is a great incentive for organizations looking to deploy strong or two-factor authentication and be a part of a Network enables consumers to use a single credential across multiple site. The timing is opportune. With quite a few...

Hi! My name is Kerry Loftus and I have product marketing and management ownership for our consumer authentication product offerings. By day, I'm a dedicated VeriSign employee focusing for the last 8 years on security technologies that are valuable to our customers in helping them better secure their online interactions with customers, business partners and employees. Few would also suspect, outside of my career, I'm a dedicated wife and mother to 4 kids (two boys and two girls, ages 1 - 13 years). Yikes! By keeping my toes in both professional and day-to-day worlds, I hope to bring real-world perspective to a space that is highly technical, potentially complicated, but incredibly essential in our still emerging digital world.

We found an awesome video on YouTube: the "MiniGeek" gets his PayPal security key in the mail, and shows us as he sets it up in less than two minutes. It's child's play! (this video has been removed.)

Welcome to the Online Identity and Trust blog here at VeriSign. Here we hope to share some interesting news about the VeriSign Identity Protection team as well as in the world of identity protection. Since we are all about identity protection, I might as well give a blurb of who I truly am so that my identity and role is clear within this team. I am the new product marketing manager for VIP and I focus on outbound marketing for our solutions.

Reading the developments in the area of identity protection, we see a lot of interesting news these days. Some of us may think that it is only to protect our online financial transactions but with the growth in Internet and the flat world, we must increasingly adapt to newer threats posed to identity theft and fraud. For example, there has...
