As online fraud continues to grow as a major issue, enterprises are trying to come up with new ways to reduce the problem. Unfortunately, we have traded convenience for strong authentication, so other methods must be used. Dan Lulich, Vice President of Technology for iovation, joins Phil and Scott to discuss the concept of end-user machine reputation as a way to establish identity. He talks about how authenticating the device is a better method to identify users.
Dan gives some examples of fraud and reviews how machine reputation can be used to combat them. He talks about the challenge of having to peer through a device using the web, which is usually considered a security hole. The group’s discussion is both fascinating and useful, as online users must protect themselves at the same time companies try to avoid identity deception.
