Nick's 2006 predictions (with strong authentication)

Nick at Wikid Systems has some security oriented predictions for 2006. Its a follow up to his post at Digital ID World.

Here are a couple:
  • GYMA (Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, AOL) and ebay into the identity game.

  • Patent issues with SAML will hamper it's adoption by the GYMA crew.

  • Mutual authentication becomes a must have for all financial websites.

  • Brokerage accounts will increasingly be targeted by phishers and fraudsters.

  • Digital signing and/or transaction authentication will become a hot-topic again as banks and brokerage houses look to thwart session-hijacking trojans.
