Welcome to the premiere issue of SecureIDNews-a publication that our team is committed to making the number one resource for up-to-the-minute insight on identification and authentication technologies. This is a place to leave your technology biases at home. In each and every issue our editorial team will cut through the sales pitches, the technical mumbo-jumbo, and the prevailing winds.
Over the last decade in the ID technology arena I have learned that no technology is right for every environment. On the flipside, every technology is ideal for certain situations and needs. This will be the place where the square pegs trying to fit into round holes are called to task and the truly great programs and utilizations are brought to a worldwide audience.
My vision for SecureIDNews is to explore the underlying issues that impact all identification and authentication programs. Regardless of country, the technology, or the application … there are fundamental concepts and processes that can guide us toward a more secure world.
As you will find in the articles in this inaugural issue, any identity chain is only as strong as its weakest link and currently we live in a world with far too many weak links.
I invite you to come with us on this exploration of secure identity technology. Each month this e-Magazine will bring you the latest news, technical briefings, policy implications, and theory on identity management. Each week the SecureID email digest will keep you up to speed on new products and projects from around the globe. And each day new information and resources will be added to the SecureIDnews.com web portal.
