Tokenless two-factor authentication defies “Heartbleed”

The existence of Heartbleed, a vulnerability in the OpenSSL open source software, was recently announced. The OpenSSL encryption tool is used worldwide on countless websites, which means the loophole can be used by hackers to access data stored on computers, such as passwords, certificates, etc., even if the websites utilise encryption with the https protocol. But unauthorised access via stolen user identities is prevented by the tokenless two-factor authentication procedure from the developer SecurEnvoy. None of the solutions from this manufacturer have such security vulnerabilities, as they do not make use of OpenSSL. Continue reading →

Infosecurity Europe: SecurEnvoy closes the back door in order to prevent data spying

Those who come in through the back door often have something to hide – and this also applies to the IT scene. For example, data spies can use back doors in token-based authentication solutions to steal information about companies. The company SecurEnvoy will be explaining how businesses can protect themselves from such prying eyes on stand H10 at Infosecurity Europe (29 April to 1 May, London). In a keynote entitled “Revolutionising 2FA to enhance the user experience”, Andrew Kemshall and Phil Underwood will look at the two-factor authentication solutions available on the market. They will also discuss security aspects relating to seed records, which are specific algorithms used to create passcodes for user identification. Continue reading →

If even a five-year-old can crack the Xbox password security…

…how much damage could a professional hacker do in a company network? At just five years of age, Kristoffer von Hassel recently caused a stir when he effortlessly circumvented the Microsoft Xbox console’s password security. He wanted to log in using his father’s account and entered an incorrect password into the query field. The verification screen then opened up and he simply pressed the space bar a few times. Once verified, the boy was able to access his father’s Xbox account without any problems. Had he been asked to enter a second factor in addition to the password, access would not have been so easily granted. Continue reading →

Data octopus acquires messaging service – and also your corporate data?

Facebook acquires WhatsApp

The social media network Facebook recently caused a stir when it announced that it will acquire the popular messaging service WhatsApp. The resulting concerns are understandable – the merger of a data octopus disguised as a “social platform” with an unencrypted messaging service via which millions of messages, pictures and videos are sent daily might well be seen as a dangerous combination.

SecurEnvoy facilitates remote working for staff at city councils and municipal authorities

From law enforcement officials to highway surveyors – staff at public authorities often work away from the office. As a result, they need to access city or municipal networks remotely in order to document their assignments. Employees at many such authorities log in via two-factor authentication and identify themselves using dedicated hardware tokens. However, with this approach, the procurement and maintenance costs relating to the tokens can rapidly escalate. An alternative is offered by the manufacturer SecurEnvoy, which has developed a tokenless two-factor authentication method. With this, staff working remotely can easily and efficiently log into networks using devices such as smartphones. Continue reading →

SecurAccess - the award winning two factor authentication solution from the inventors of tokenless.

08 July 2012 @ Pretoria, South Africa

 

Tokenless Explained

Tokenless two factor authentication definition; What it is is a combination of two of the three alternatives; something I know, something I own or something I am such as biometric. SecurEnvoy use the something I know ( a username and a password unique to the individual) and something I have/own which is a mobile device. Either via SMS, an app, a secure email or a voice call SecurEnvoy allows the users to choose which is the favoured method of choice to the end user.

Using Apps as Authenticators

Software on a phone in the past was too difficult to deploy and manage. Now with the advent of the app stores form Apple, Blackberry, Android and Windows so its now free and easy to deploy. However its not necessarily secure, so SecurEnvoy invented a method that anyone with a smart device can have an app deployed but one that is unique and individual to each device. Only half the seed records are stored, the other half is at the server level; competitors however leave the whole seed on the device and charge for each and every one of them, moreover they are easy to lave on the device when its upgraded then leaving a potential security flaw! Lean how SecurEnvoy overcome this issue. More at www.securenvoy.com/animations/overview/animations.shtm
