TS interviews Stina Ehrensvard (April 21, 2014)

On today’s show, we talked about the 25th Anniversary of Ninendo’s gameboy and then dove into an in-depth interview with Stina Ehrensvard, Founder and CEO of Yubico, Inc. to talk about the Yubikey, the FIDO Alliance, and the future of two-factor authentication, the addition of an additional hardware (or software) authentication token to access an online account or profile. Ehrensvard also spoke about Yubico’s participation in the FIDO Alliance, an initiative to develop and implement an open and secure authentication standard. You can read more about the FIDO alliance here.
