The case for identity-enabled devices

Eric Parizo Eric Parizo Profile: Eric Parizo

I wanted to highlight an article that debuted on the site this week that was written by Joel Dubin, which makes the case for identity-enabled network devices. On one hand, as Joel writes, the technology is meant to add an extra layer of security to any kind of network device by requiring both the user and the device to authenticate, but at the same time, it’s worth asking whether the added complexity and hardware requirements (devices dating back before 2006 won’t cut it) make it more of a burden than it’s worth.

We’re always interested in what our readers think, so let us know if this is or isn’t a concept that makes sense (and one you’d like us to write more about in the future).
