The surge in the number of data breaches and recent security bugs such as Heartbleed has generated strong interest in digital certificates and technologies, including SSL and PKI.
For all the repeated advice to use different, complex password for each online account, users are still opting for easy-to-guess, short ones and use them repeatedly across many websites and online services.
A group of researchers from University of California, Berkeley, have analyzed five popular web-based password managers and have discovered - and then responsibly reported - vulnerabilities that could allow attackers to learn a userís credentials for arbitrary websites.
As the world becomes more dependent, and some might say blindly so, on digital certificates itís only natural that attackers will seek to circumvent this trust.
Enterprises are increasing their investment in Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions.
