Episode 125: The End of Passwords with Trusona’s Ori Eisen
Passwords are the worst. It’s too hard to remember them so you end up reusing them everywhere. Password managers create a treasure trove for hackers. And even two-factor authentication has vulnerabilities. So that got us thinking – what’s next?
Ori Eisen is our guest on this episode of the Georgian Impact Podcast. He is the founder and CEO of Trusona – a company working to bring about the end of passwords. Their technology verifies online identities using a combination of the existing biometrics in your phones, along with a snapshot of the “river of data” coming from the phone’s sensors. It’s online security that goes way beyond asking for your mother’s maiden name.
You’ll hear about:
- Why two-factor authentication often isn’t as secure as you’d expect, and why companies like Google are moving away from SMS-based 2FA.
- The pitfalls of password managers, and how they can make life easy for the bad guys.
- How Trusona integrates with everything from Office 365, to Zoom, to WordPress.
- How to thwart spearfishing attacks even if hackers steal your phone or spoof your SIM card.
- Why anti-replay is a key part of any security solution.
- How quantum computing could soon undo the last 50 years of cryptography.
