It also provides a handy browser plugin to fill in credentials for me, once I’ve authenticated to the plugin. Multi-factor authentication (MFA). Now, on to our second point for today: multi-factor authentication (MFA).

The Myths of Multifactor Authentication

CTOvision

Read François Amigorena bust certain myths surrounding multifactor authentication on Dark Reading : Compromised credentials are a huge threat to companies today. The attacker is actually using valid (that is, stolen but valid) credentials, so why would your antivirus, firewall, and other technologies you might have in place flag anything unusual?

Enhanced SQL Server Security with Cross Realm kerberos and NTLM authentication from Linux

Progress

NTLM Windows Authentication from Unix/Linux. I have been seeing this requirement a lot which is primarily driven by corporate compliance since Microsoft strongly discourages use of SQL Server authentication with a database and password. Therefore, databases supporting only NTLM Windows authentication become isolated from Unix/Linux environments where key business systems are running. You can learn more about our exclusive authentication from Unix/Linux to SQL Server via JDBC.

We Need A National Cybersecurity Strategy That Everyone Can Implement

CTOvision

So here’s three things the nation can do to make it less vulnerable to cyber attacks: 1/ Implement 2-Factor Authentication. Basic: Implementing two-factor authentication is the simplest mitigation against credential theft. Ideally the private key must be on a different physical server from the storage unit and should only be assessable with 2-factor authentication. This can be done by configuring the internal Firewall on Internet facing application servers.
