pp: 57-60
ABSTRACT
Both industry and federal agencies are resisting a stronger authentication and authorization infrastructure. The reasons have little to do with available technology and everything to do with users' and system owners' resistance to change. Users think credentials based on usernames and passwords are adequate because financial transactions demand nothing more. System owners need to view user digital certificates as a way to improve efficiency and reduce risk.
INDEX TERMS
Smart IT, cybersecurity, public-key infrastructure (PKI), digital certificates, authentication, authorization
