google-authentication

Google released a couple of interesting products (as beta, natch). The first is their hosted email service, which allows enterprises to outsource their mail services to Google.

I see that Google is allowing SAML for Apps for Domains. Anybody test this yet? I hope to get a chance to soon.

I think Google's purchase of GreenBorder is very intersting. It shows that they see the threat that malware has to the online commerce and that they intend to do something about it. What's not clear is whether this acquisition was done with the goal of protecting payment processing (Google CheckOut) or whether it is meant to shore up security around their office application suite and their new offline access system Google Gears. Perhaps, Google is smart enough to know that both need additional security and is organized in such a way to make it happen.

Ben Laurie and Eric Sachs from Google's security team have published an article on the Usability of Stronger Authentication Options. This is a very interesting document and it's great to see the large internet players focus on security. Unfortunately, in their list of strong authentication methods they do not include software tokens, which seems to me to be a pretty big oversight. Of course, I'm a bit biased. Here are my thoughts on Ben & Eric's concerns:
