I am at RSA for the next few days. Checking out the ‘security scene’. If you are around and want to be interviewed for the Story of Digital Identity feel free to ping me with via IM (I now have my Yahoo! IM on/off on the side of my blog) or with my i-name.
This morning I saw the head of RSA speak – FREAKY is all I have to say. They wan to have pervasive passive authentication – checking all user behavior against our prior behavior as stored in our browser (this is our attention data) and their uberdatabses on us. They are talking about really having us loosing our privacy. I would never give access to the uber security network system they are talking about plugging us all into. This will have constant surveillance of our transaction patterns “normalcy” according to their algorithms. Yuck! Yuck! Yuck!
