myopenid-security-fix

Josh Hoyt has a preliminary notice about a security fix for MyOpenID. It's limited (at least on MyOpenID) to Safari users, so it's not a big deal. Josh considers it a flaw in the way Safari handles javascript security. But it is clear that OpenID is going through some growing pains as a protocol, which is natural and healthy. I'm impressed with the way the community is handling this vulnerability.

Hat Tip: Virtualization Daily. Network World has a great article pointing out the benefits of virtual appliances

networkworld-on-pci-conflicts-of-interest

NetworkWorld has an article on the potential for conflicts of interest in the PCI world. In sum:

  • There are only 60 qualified security assessors (QSAs).
  • Many QSAs also sell products.

Today we released the RC5-1 version of the WiKID Strong Authentication Server Community Edition on Sourceforge.net. Please test it out if you are looking to play with two-factor authentication.

Just a quick note to check our our howto on HTF: How To Secure Postgresql Using Two-Factor Authentication From WiKID . Since databases are the repository for critical information such as credit card numbers, we thought this would be a useful edition given PCI requirements, etc.
