Client to Authenticator Protocol (CTAP)

CTAP: A protocol for more security & convenience on the web

Try and imagine a world where you don’t have to memorize passwords: Thanks to FIDO2, this could soon become a reality. Authentication in online stores or for online banking can be done through a fingerprint or hardware token. The latter can communicate with laptops of PCs through a USB, NFC or Bluetooth. To enable conversations between two devices, FIDO2 uses the Client to Authenticator Protocol...

Zero-day exploit

Zero-day exploit: Explanation and protection measures

The risk for businesses to fall victim to a zero-day exploit has increased in recent years. More and more often, cybercriminals can take advantage of as-yet undiscovered weak points in business software in order to steal or manipulate data.

What is a rootkit?

What you need to know about rootkits

If you ask the IT community which malware is the most harmful, the answer is typically not viruses, worms or Trojan horses. Experts unanimously agree that rootkits pose much greater problems even to experienced users. The rootkit’s special ability is to conceal other malware and thereby enable cybercriminals to misuse others’ computers for their own criminal activities undetected – such as for bot...

ISO 27001

ISO 27001: Standardizing Information Security in Companies

By complying with the ISO 27001 standard, companies can prove they carefully handle information and plan for exceptional circumstances.

The certification is performed by an independent institute.

DNS over TLS

DNS over TLS: an improved security concept

The Domain Name System has a big security flaw: requests and responses are traditionally sent unencrypted. This provides Internet criminals with an ideal point of attack. Again and again, users are being directed to websites that they actually have no desire to visit. DNS over TLS acts as a deterrent. How does the security concept work?

What is DNS Hijacking?

DNS Hijacking: When the Domain Name System becomes a security risk

Technically, the Domain Name System (DNS) is a good thing because it allows you to access a website using its URL rather than its IP address. The domain address is then automatically interpreted as an IP address – thanks to the DNS. But despite these performance benefits, the system carries a significant risk: DNS Hijacking. The practice is simple: a hacker accesses a user’s device configuration...

What is FIDO2?

FIDO2: The new standard for secure web log-in

Passwords are not an ideal way to surf the World Wide Web safely. They are either so complex that they are hard to remember, or so simple that they can be guessed in next to no time. FIDO2 takes a different approach and relies on modern technology. The open standard has the potential to make surfing the net safer and more convenient at the same time.

WebAuthn

WebAuthn (Web Authentication)

Passwords have long ceased to offer sufficient protection when surfing the internet: They are easy to crack, easily tapped, and difficult to remember. Together with the FIDO Alliance, the World Wide Web Consortium has developed a new standard. WebAuthn is intended to make logging into social media or online shopping portals easier and safer. How does it work?
