Krebs: commentary on global authentication via your wireless carrier

Brian Krebs: U.S. Mobile Giants Want to be Your Online Identity – “The four major U.S. wireless carriers today detailed a new initiative that may soon let Web sites eschew passwords and instead authenticate visitors by leveraging data elements unique to each customer’s phone and mobile subscriber account, such as location, customer reputation, and physical attributes of the device.” What could go wrong? Well, too much for the idea to appeal to Krebs, and I have to say I agree. These carriers have not covered themselves with glory so far as regards their own/their customers’ authentication.
