One of our customers, Online Banking Solutions offers banks and financial institution software for commercial account management. They have embedded WiKID for two-factor session authentication and mutual https authentication in both the server side and on their optional client. The combined client facilitates the initial validation process, performs session authentication using the one-time passcode and performs mutual https authentication to prevent MITM attacks.

Website updates

As you have seen no doubt, we've updated the website.   While it has a new look and feel, most of the effort has gone on behind the scenes.  We've upgraded plone and added some new features.  We've added forums for both the Community and Enterprise versions.  We will close the sourceforge.net forums soon.
