NYT Password Security Discussion Overlooks Universal Logins

A recent NYT piece explores the never-ending quest for password-based security, to which reader climenole responds with a snippet from ReadWriteWeb that argues it’s time to think more seriously about life beyond passwords, at least beyond keeping a long list of individual login/password pairs:

“These protective measures don’t go very far, according to the New York Times, because hackers can get ahold of passwords with software that remotely tracks keystrokes, or by tricking users into typing them in. The story touches on a range of issues around the problem, but neglects to mention the obvious: the march toward a centralized login for multiple sites.”
