what you re not being told about pki
What you’re not being told about PKI
  • Security is only as strong as its weakest component
  • Are digital certificates really authenticating the user?
    • NO
  • Who is using your key? How do you protect it?
    • How secure is your hard drive?
    • If stored on a smart card, how attack-resistant is the card?
  • Why does this matter?
    • Non-repudiation
    • If your signing key has been certified by an approved Certificate Authority, then you are legally responsible for whatever that private key does
what s the solution

what you ARE

(voice, face, fingerprint)

what you KNOW

(PINs, passwords)

what

you HAVE

(keys, cards, tokens)

What’s the solution ?
  • Extend authentication beyond the device/knowledge to include to user

BIOMETRICS =

The science of verifying an individual’s identity by means of personal characteristics such as voice, face and fingerprints.

how does biometric authentication work
How does biometric authentication work ?
  • Enrollment Process
    • Happens 1 time
    • Voice, face and/or fingerprint capture
    • Unique features (BioData) are extracted and stored on database or smart card for future reference
  • Verification Process
    • Happens every time
    • Live data is compared to reference BioData
    • User is accepted or rejected
how will digital certificates and biometrics be used
How will digital certificates and biometrics be used ?
  • Rather than substituting traditional authentication means, biometrics will be complementary
  • Biometrics will unlock the digital certificate after positive biometric authentication

PKI

Digital Certificates

Biometrics

Tokens

Smart Cards

Passwords/Cards

what are the costs
What are the costs?
  • Approximately 3000 people every day contact credit card bureaus to report identity theft
  • Identity theft results in billions of dollars of fraud each year, and the numbers are climbing
  • The cost of resetting passwords is $150/user/year (based on help desk costs)
  • Can you afford not to explore the biometric authentication alternative?
conclusion
Conclusion
  • Biometrics enhances security and privacy by extending authentication beyond the digital certificate to include the user
  • Biometric technology is …
    • Here today
    • Highly effective in protecting privacy
    • Convenient to the user
    • Affordable
