Interview: National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace
In a recent interview Bruce McConnell, counselor to Homeland Security Deputy Undersecretary Philip Reitinger, discussed the new framework for the National Strategy for Trusted Initiative in Cyberspace.
In discussing two-factor authentication, he said “The goal of the strategy is to lay out a path forward that people can voluntarily engage in a system which will give them and whoever they are dealing with, whether it is an institution or another individual, much higher degree of confidence that they know who they are dealing with….The strategy is important from a cybersecurity standpoint, but it is also very important from an economic standpoint because with increased trust there will be less fraud and more confidence in the Internet and then that way people will bond new kids of transactions and thus be a boost to the economics of the Internet.”
