Could attackers break into your SecurID two-factor authentication system? Despite the open letter issued this week by RSA chairman Art Coviello, many of the company's customers remain confused about exactly what attackers stole from RSA in March, and what risk that information might pose to their enterprise, even if they're not a defense contractor.

Springtime in Munich

One of the things I love about the European Identity Conference is the willingness of the organizers, Kuppinger Cole + Partner, to explore new formats instead of tired old presentations.
