Adaptive & Risk based Authentication

Parent Track


The search for a secure way to authenticate users’ identities to use systems is seemingly unending. Passwords appear to be cheap but password management can be expensive and passwords have well known risks that are still ignored. Risk based authentication where the authentication mechanism is dynamically chosen based on the level of risk has been widely promoted but involves extra costs and complexities. The increasing use of cloud, social and mobile adds extra risks and difficulties. This block of sessions will provide an update and advice on this complex area.

Continuing Education Credits

Prerequisites: None
Advance Preparation: None
Learning Level: Intermediate
Field: Computer Science

After attending this block of sessions you will be able to:

  • Describe what is new on the authentication scene and how this can help your organization face the challenges of cloud, mobile and social computing.
  • Explain how can we use the latest advances in pattern and image recognition for example, to ensure that a secret remains a secret during the authentication process.
  • Describe the latest work on authentication standards and mechanisms from the FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) alliance.

This block qualifies for up to 2 Group Learning based CPEs depending on the number of sessions you attend.


Authentication Trends – will Wearables take us _BAC to the Future?

Authentication Trends – will Wearables take us _BAC to the Future?
Amar Singh, KuppingerCole

In the seemingly unending search to find the next generation of devices and methods to replace passwords as authentication mechanisms, the various x-Based Access Control (Rules, Roles, Attributes, Context, etc.) which had been projected by one pundit or another to be the “killer app” for secure access may be getting a run for their money from wearable, biometrics-based, token issuing devices. Join us to find out what’s new and what we recommend for today’s...

Do We Need To Put Secrecy Back In To Security? The Reinvention of Authentication
Anthony Nadalin, Microsoft • John Bradley, Yubico • Mike Neuenschwander, iC Consult Americas • Steven Hope, Winfrasoft • Bart Renard, VASCO Data Security

In this discussion we will all work together to re-invent authentication. Why? Because the industry has been adding more and more layers of complexity to the authentication process and rather than making our environments more secure it is having the opposite effect. Utopia is an authentication process that is simple, memorable and secure, but existing methods of identification used by the majority of organisations, all lack at least one of these vital components....
