New Anti-Phishing Product
June 20, 2005
A company called Green Armor Solutions has launched a new anti-phishing Web ID product, Identity Cues, which uses visual cues such as colored letters during log-in to proactively inform users whether or not a website truly belongs to the organization that it appears to represent. Cues are displayed as users type their usernames and passwords. The visual aids vary between users, but are identical on each login for any particular user. Access need not be from one's own computer in order to be secure, says the firm, and there is no need to verify the identity of a user before presenting a cue.
