WiKID-breaks-8-000-downloads-on-Sourceforge.net

Sometime yesteday we surpassed 8,000 downloads of the open source version of our two-factor authentication system on Sourceforge. That is pretty exciting.

WiKID-releases-new-open-source-version-2-1.1

This will probably be the last 2.x release. It is pretty stable. We are now looking at some pretty big changes, though mostly they will be architectural changes not functional changes. Many, like support for Tomcat 5.x, will be very welcome. Others will be less noticeable - changes to the build system for example.

I have written another how-to for howtoforge. This one is titled Secure your SSH deployment with WiKID two-factor authentication

I have had a bad case of the blogdrums, plus we've been busy working on our 3.0 release. We have just opened to the public our 3.0 beta release in an RPM version. So if you want to play around with two-factor authentication and help us out, please download.

buyability-and-usability

Today we turned on online purchasing for WiKID Strong Authentication licenses. It is a bit of an experiment in "buyability". A big hat tip to Dharmesh Shah's post on Usability vs. Buyability to clarify this point for me. We had focused on ease of use. We have provided ASP scripts that automate the two-factor roll-out process, for example and have an incredibly easy to use Web-interface on the WiKID server (IMHO - another hat tip to Brian Dame ;). We have attempted to take the risk out of buying WiKID by having an open-source version and by having a trial version of the commercial server available for download from the extranet. And we have set up a way to test the WiKID two-factor tokens without even providing an email address.
