Alternatives to Passwords
by Berislav Kucan - Tuesday, 15 June 2004.
The third annual survey into office scruples conducted by Infosecurity Europe 2004 found that office workers are still not information security savvy. A survey of office workers found that 71% were willing to part with their password for a chocolate bar.

In this 8 minutes long audio learning session, John Stuart, Signify CEO, discusses what are the alternatives to passwords. There are three fundamental technologies which users could take into consideration: one time passcodes (token based systems), digital certificates and biometrics. Mr. Stuart talks about all of these technologies and provides background and benefits on each of these security systems.
