When you think of customer identity and access management (CIAM), what do you think of? One of the first things I think of is a network. That's because I believe security teams need to map out all the different ways in which your customer interacts with you, and how they end up authenticating themselves in each of those flows. Think of them as the different points in your "business network" that customers use to get in. If you haven't mapped out each and every one of them, you have a problem. To use a different analogy, making the front door stronger won't matter much if you've left a window open somewhere. Your defenses are only as strong as your weakest checkpoint. And in far too many enterprises, the weakest checkpoint will often turn out to be something that was missed, overlooked or just not paid enough attention to.

Security requires a defense in depth strategy. In this case one hack that flipped a bank's DNS addresses to impostor sites set the ball in motion for a complete digital channel heist. Remarkable.

While no doubt this was a pre-planned sophisticated attack, it is clear that if they deployed a mutual and simultaneous authentication tool that was integrated with a communications layer that went beyond TLS the heist would have failed.

My Next Gig: Delivering the Identity-Defined Perimeter with Uniken

As an industry, we’ve come a long way since then. Multi-factor Authentication is mainstream, as is Paul Madsen’s t-shirt contest at CIS. Most companies are no longer debating whether their security can be entrusted to cloud-based solutions, as IDaaS solutions gain traction across all kinds of enterprises. SAML isn’t dead yet, and Blockchain is getting a lot of attention for reasons that are still fuzzy to me, but OpenID Connect and FIDO continue to evolve along paths that could have tremendous impact on the security landscape.

Content Delivery Networks and DDOS protection services that require TLS traffic be terminated within their cloud are creating new problem: CLIENT DATA EXPOSURE.

To be fair, CDN's terminate the TLS sessions so that they can do TCP and TLS protocol break, content inspection and traffic analysis. These networks also add TLS to TCP sessions as well. But, unfortunately both these types of services breaks three core features of TLS end-to-end protections: data privacy, data integrity and how its most often used server side authentication. The only solution is for apps to implement their own end-to-end, at the process level, protocol that can put these key protections back in place.
