Last week, the Australian online edition of CIO magazine published a great set of questions your CEO should be asking IT staff about replacing their existing strong authentication solution. Three key questions in the article are particularly interesting in wake of the recent news from RSA:

  1. How much is distributing new tokens going to cost the organization?
  2. When will we receive the replacements? Six months? Twelve months?
  3. Are there any alternative two-factor authentication offerings that are lower cost and more convenient that would save the organization operating expenses without compromising security?

Most organizations seeking to mitigate the potential risk to their sensitive...

Today PayPal launched mobile access for its Security Key. This means that along with the traditional token and credit card form factor, PayPal Security Key users can now get their one time password (OTP) texted to their mobile phone. This is very cool, especially if you're one of those people who use your cell phone for everything--phone, email, text, Internet, GPS, camera...and now you can use it to protect your accounts online.

The new SMS OTP for the PayPal Security Key is available to customers in the U.S., Australia, Austria, Canada and Germany. PayPal does not charge for the OTPs texted to mobile devices. To use the service, customers need a mobile device and wireless service set up to receive SMS text messages. It's that simple.

The PayPal Security Key is part of the VeriSign Identity Protection (VIP) Network. As part of this network, consumers can use the OTPs to protect their accounts on a variety of financial services and e-commerce Web sites like eBay,...
