OATH steps up authentication moves

Rob writes "The Initiative for Open Authentication, OATH, will shortly publish its 2006 roadmap, in
which it is expected to reveal plans to work on more one-time password specifications
designed to drive adoption of strong authentication. The organization, set up by VeriSign
Inc almost two years ago, is likely to reveal plans to work on protocols for handling
password validation and the like, possibly going over ground already trodden by RSA
Security Inc, which is not a member. The move comes shortly after the Liberty Alliance
Project announced it was getting into strong authentication, and a few weeks after the US
financial services industry received new two-factor authentication guidelines
."
