  • Bad Actors Catalyst Behind New Standards for Code Signing

    Code Signing is a cryptographic process to digitally sign executables and scripts. The signature confirms the software author or publisher’s identity, and provides integrity by guarantying the software has not been altered since it was signed. The goal is to help the end user make the correct yes or no decision. Certification authorities (CAs) have been providing code signing certificates

  • 2017 Looking Back, Moving Forward

    Looking Back at 2016 Fortunately, 2016 was not a year full of SSL/TLS vulnerabilities. Although some researchers did prove old cryptography algorithms should be put out to pasture. The year showed the end of public-trusted SHA-1 SSL/TLS certificates. It also showed more transparency should be considered due to issues discovered with a few certification authorities (CAs). The great news is

Identity is another one, be it mistaken identity, identity theft or trying to prove identity. What identity technologies, when
