VPN services leak info via IPv6

Earlier this year, we released a set of packer scripts that allow you to easily build a two-factor ready openvpn virtual appliance.  We have updated the scripts to turn off IPv6 because it seems that VPN services using Openvpn can leak information via IPv6.  (This was surely the easy fix. There may be better ones.)

Bridging Gunnar Gaps to create virtual circles

If you haven't read Gunnar Peterson's post Security, Fast and Slow, please do so now.  It is about how Security's natural tendencies grate the natural tendencies of Development.  Security needs to adapt to make it easier for Development to make the right decisions to bridges such gaps.  I now call these "Gunnar Gaps". 

WiKID Strong Authentication Community Edition on the Amazon Cloud

We have created a public AMI version of the WiKID Strong Authentication System for Amazon's EC2 cloud offering.  While it is quite simple to install WiKID on a Redhat or Ubuntu linux AMI, we hope that this will make it even easier for people to learn about two-factor authentication.  

2-factor for Ubuntu just got easier

It's been busy around here.  Today we finally released our WiKID Strong Authentication server .debs for Ubuntu.  These packages have the same functionality as the RPMs, except that we don't currently have replication working (another story altogether).
