If you have a question about this talk, please contact Jonathan Anderson.

The focus of this presentation will be to review the current status of Web transaction security and address the question of why e-criminals still enjoy the upper hand notwithstanding the availability of means for achieving strong transaction security. In particular, the following topics will be addressed:

  • the failure of strong multi-factor authentication methods
  • a taxonomy of attack vectors as the basis for a proper evaluation of protection strength
  • the need for a multi-layered approach to transaction security
  • how application hardening impacts the e-crime economics (or hacking ROI )
  • a new method for dynamic application authentication
  • the impact of usability on security: how to thwart a provably secure transaction validation method
