The password 1.I forgot my password! 20%-50% of Help Desk Calls According to the Gartner Group, between 20% to 50% of all help desk calls are for password resets. Forrester Research states that the average help desk labor cost for a single password reset is about $70. Credit-checking firm Experian found that for an average of 26 different online accounts, users had only five different passwords year-olds are the most prolific, with no fewer than 40 online accounts per person on average. 2 Million Stolen Passwords Recovered The stash includes purloined Facebook, Google, Twitter, and Yahoo access credentials. ~ the stolen credential mother lode was the botnet herder's collection of almost 1.6 million stolen website login credentials, which comprised 326,129 Facebook passwords (or 59% of all recovered stolen passwords), followed by 70,532 passwords for Google (13%), 59,549 for Yahoo (11%), 21,708 for Twitter (4%), and 8,490 LinkedIn (2%).

Gartner floated some interesting ideas and predictions on where the Identity and Access Management (IAM) market is heading during Monday’s IAM Summit keynote.IAM Summit Some may be a bit more futuristic than others, but their view is cause to take a step back from the daily grind and observe our industry from new perspectives. Below are the highlights and 2020 predictions: 1. Every user is a consumer, and the way we access systems is consumer-like –especially in the mobile era. Gartner predicts that by 2020, 80% of access will be shaped by non-PC architectures – up from 5% today. It’s time to move on, and stop trying to make mobile devices look like corporate PC’s. 2. The IAM space is becoming a competitive marketplace for identities. By 2020, 60% of digital identities interacting with the enterprise will come from external identity providers through a competitive marketplace – up from less than 10% today. 3. The death of the “least privileged”. By 2020, over 80% of enterprise will allow unrestricted access to non-critical assets up from 5% today reducing IAM spend by 25%. To this end, organizations are better off focusing IAM spend on high-value data, and applying baseline security to everything else. (Drop Box) 4. By end of 2020, overall IAM products and services pricing will drop by 40% relative to today in real terms. We’ll see new ways of addressing the same issue, with new competitive players. We’ll see a change in delivery models. Also, pricing will move from user-based to transaction-based. 5. It’s not who you are, but what you do and how you do it. Multitude of devices, applications, and identities bring more attributes and multi- dimensional context to access control. By 2020, 70% of all businesses will use attribute based access control (ABAC) as the dominant mechanism to protect critical assets, up from 5% today. 6. Identity intelligence finally gets a brain: By 2020, identity analytical and intelligence (IAI) tools will deliver direct business value in 60% of enterprises up from less than 5% today. This will include logging and log management, behavioral attributes about who is accessing what and “identity nodes” around users and administrators. 7. Managing identities will include the internet of things. By 2020, the internet of things will redefine the concept of “identity management” to include what people own, share, and use. Legacy pricing models will implode: 20/20 Vision: Top Identity & Access Management Predictions from the Gartner IAM 20/20 Vision: Top Identity & Access Management Predictions from the Gartner IAM Summit Andrew Young November 20, 2013, 11:41 am EST
In a breach first announced on this blog Oct. 3, 2013, Adobe said hackers had stolen nearly 3 million encrypted customer credit card records, as well as login data for an undetermined number of Adobe user accounts. Earlier this month, Adobe said it had actually notified more than 38 million users that their encrypted account data may have been compromised. But asfirst reported here on Oct. 29, the breach may have impacted closer to 150 million Adobe users.first announced on this blog Oct. 3, 2013first reported here on Oct. 29 Adobe Breach
To Restate The Problem Login and password authentication stinks – Hard to remember – Easy to Steal – Easy to Spoof – Hard to support – Old Technology Gets better with two factors (mobile or Token)
Technology Trends According to Kevin 1.Bandwidth Prices have no bottom 2.Storage cost will continue to Drop 3.Processing power will increase and costs will drop 4.Mobile technology is ubiquitous 5.Big Data (Stupid Phrase) is just getting started 6.Video and photo is the new text
Technology Trends Enabling 1.Impossible applications will be possible (Gods Number, bio- informatics, Kinect) 2.Real time video and image analysis (Remote medicine, wearable computing, augmented Reality) 3.Context Sensitive Security 4.GPS aware security 5.Attribute Bases Access control 6.“Trust Everyone but brand your Cattle” According to Kevin
Future of Identity and Authentication Management 1.“Welcome back to the Gap Mr. Yakimoto”. Mall Scene from Minority ReportMall Scene 2.Multifactor Biometrics (Iris, facial, fingerprint, DNA) (things we are) 3.Tokens and devices (things we have) 4.PIN’s, password and codes (things we know) 5.Context aware (Attribute Based Access Control) NIST (October 2013) (things we are doing) 6.What to do about privacy?
Past - Future
Future of Identity and Authentication Management Winners? 1.Characteristics of winners in the space 1.Low Cost 2.Secure implementation 3.Universal adoption 4.Hard to Hack or Crack 5.Must be 2 or 3 factor 2.Trusted or required 3.Mobile devices are first to implement 1.Apple 5s finger print reader 2.Samsung Galaxy S4 facial recognition 4.Rings (NFC) no biometrics 5.NYMI (Heart beat) 6.Kinect Heart BeatKinect Heart Beat
Problems 1.FIDO versus What? No Standards to begin with 2.Bad guys can buy technology also 3.Human beings are not that smart about stuff 4.What to do about privacy ? 5.Can the law gather your DNA just in case you ever commit a crime? 6.Freedom from search without a probable cause
