Beware the IDs of March

Or dancing the authentication pas de deux….

Stephen Cobb, my colleague at ESET, has just looked at Apple’s two-step authentication in rather more depth than I did here.

Another friend from the security industry, Sorin Mustaca, is a little more brutal: “We are happy to inform you that Apple finally decided to join the club of companies who care about the security of its customers…” Being in Germany, he is not yet able to test the process, but has promised a detailed how-to in due course. (Stephen has also promised a blog on the topic.)
