CN Fellow, Rachna Dhamija, spoke recently at the Third Workshop on Trustworthy Interfaces for Passwords and Personal Information (TIPPI) held at Stanford University. She presented her research findings on the security and usability of Bank of America’s SiteKey authentication scheme. The session closed with a debate between Rachna and Louie Gasparini of RSA Security, one of the original creators of the scheme.

Tomorrow, Rachna will be speaking at the Symposium on Usable Privacy and Security (SOUPS’07) at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. She’s appearing on a panel entitled “Multi-factor Authentication for Online Banking: Security or Snake Oil?”, along with panelists Steven Myers of Indiana University and Jeffrey Friedberg, Chief Privacy Architect at Microsoft.
