PayPal Security Key

July 5th, 2007

Multi-factor authentication (biometrics, security token, etc.) is better than using a password alone. For $5 one can get a security key for PayPal. I’ve always been a fan of PayPal because it is safer than credit cards in that money is transferred in exact amounts to vendors. Only PayPal has to have the credit card information.

PayPal, though great, is still susceptible to attacks in that a password can be guessed or keystroke loggers can capture login credentials. The new security key takes care of those two attacks. Read more, or order your own, here.
