RSA to test new Web authentication service

Security simplified!

Looking for a way to get its security gadgets into the hands of average consumers, RSA Security plans to test a new Web authentication service.

  • The security company's new RSA Authentication Service is designed to let consumers securely access multiple Web sites using a single RSA security credential, such as the company's password-generating hardware tokens.
  • A customer of both the E*Trade brokerage and a Wells Fargo bank could use a single device to authenticate their identity on the companies' sites.

Just one password credential to gain access to secure company data. Can the password credentials be hacked?
