Passwords? To Infinity and Beyond!


Presentation

Come to this session to find out a little about how we got to where we are today when it comes to user authentication. Passwords have been seen as some kind of panacea with stronger and stronger passwords being suggested as the solution to most security questions. But does this just give us a way to blame users when things inevitably go wrong? Do we need to rethink the entire approach to individual authentication? What could possibly be coming? We will examine a brief history of user authentication, discuss the state of play at most organisations today and reflect on the views of some of the industry's leading lights about where we could all be heading. But we'll try not to be as boring as that makes it sound! Welcome to our sci fi world of tomorrow :-)

Julie will copresent with Glennon Bagsby.

  • Julie-Ann Williams at ?
  • Julie-Ann Williams has been messing around with IBM mainframe computers for most of the last 30 years. She has been helping Customers to get ready for external audits since 1987. As well as being something of a security geek, Julie-Ann has extensive experience with web enabling mainframe applications for large IBM Customers and was one of the first people in Europe to implement Domino (Lotus Notes) on a mainframe. She has an unusual blend of skills encompassing detailed, classic mainframe knowledge (don’t call it legacy!) as well as """"newer"""" technologies like WebSphere, TCP/IP and UNIX combined with communications abilities and Mentoring. She’s pretty sure that the last two used to be called having a chat with your colleagues in the good old days.
