Gates Calls For More Powerful Computer Security


Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates addressed thousands of computer security specialists gathered at a San Francisco conference, calling for a "powerful paradigm" to thwart online crime.

"People want more flexibility and anywhere access with multiple devices," Gates told a standing-room-only crowd of RSA Conference 2007 attendees.

"We need a far more powerful paradigm to handle this."

Gates and Microsoft "security guru" Craig Mundie backed a common standard for computer security technology and agreed that the traditional practice of "building walls and moats" to fortify networks needed to be evolve.

Also at RSA, Microsoft announced a series of product news, initiatives and industry alliances to help customers achieve anywhere access, including the upcoming availability of Identity Lifecycle Manager 2007, the public beta of Microsoft Forefront Server Security Management Console, support for Extended Validation SSL certificates in Internet Explorer 7, and new collaboration with industry partners to help combat phishing.

To further enable the vision of secure and easy anywhere access, Microsoft today announced the following industry alliances:

- Microsoft announced Identity Lifecycle Manager (ILM) 2007. Available to customers in May, ILM 2007 is a new solution that builds on Microsoft?s metadirectory and user provisioning capabilities by adding support for managing strong credentials such as certificates and smart cards. ILM provides an integrated solution for managing the entire life cycle of a user identity. Microsoft also unveiled a strategy and road map for identity life-cycle management, including planned availability of ILM "2," the next version of ILM, in late 2008.

- On the heels of the Windows CardSpace general availability launch in Windows Vista, Microsoft announced the collaboration on use of Windows CardSpace with the OpenID 2.0 specification. Through the support of the WS-Trust-based Windows CardSpace, consumers can take advantage of increased security against phishing attacks without adding complexity to their identity management experience. Also at the conference, Wachovia Corp., Arcot Systems Inc. and Corillian Corp. showcased a proof of concept demonstration using Windows CardSpace to deliver a simpler and safer online banking experience for customers.

- Microsoft launched the public beta of the new Forefront Server Security Management Console, a centralized, Web-based management solution for onsite or remote administration of Microsoft messaging and collaboration security solutions.

- Microsoft announced that it has enabled support for Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificates in Internet Explorer 7, which is the first browser to fully support EV SSL Certificates. When a user visits a site with a valid EV Certificate, Internet Explorer 7 will alert the user to the available identity information by turning the background of the address bar green and displaying identity information. Twelve certificate authorities, including VeriSign Inc., Cybertrust and Entrust, are already issuing EV SSL Certificates.

- Microsoft has added four new data providers to the Microsoft Phishing Filter service: the Australian Computer Emergency Response Team (AusCERT), BrandProtect, MySpace.com and Netcraft Ltd., whose own broad set of Internet Explorer and Firefox toolbar anti-phishing data sources will be included as data feeds into the service. These new providers join Microsoft?s current anti-phishing data providers, which include Cyveillance, Digital Resolve, Internet Identity, MarkMonitor Inc., and RSA Security, the security division of EMC Corp.

This was the 16th annual conference and it boasted an attendance of approximately 16,000 people, the largest turnout in its history.
