Throw the User ID Down the Well - Daniel Reich (Passwords Con 2014) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Throw the User ID Down the Well - Daniel Reich

Abstract:Account compromises have unfortunately become a more common occurrence. Password re-use is bad for your security hygiene but it’s a habit that we’ve struggled to break free from. In this talk, I present an alternate strategy to strengthen a user’s security posture. We will discuss the concept and benefits of a disposable identity. This is not cure but another idea to make the attack vector more difficult to spread beyond the single compromise.

Bio:Daniel Reich is currently focused on cloud security as a business development manager within EMC. He began his career in the mid 90's peddling firewalls at a time when they were delivered on tape. Daniel has had a wide variety of roles in his career. He co-founded a profitable managed security services company, managed the information security for a financial firm and also ran engineering teams at a security software vendor. In his spare time, he likes to tinker around with all the cool tools everyone else is developing.
