Intel working with Symantec and Vasco to create Hardware based Identity Protection Technology
According to the good people over at Engadget Intel has partnered up with security giants Symantec and Vasco in a bid to make us feel more secure about sharing personal details over the internet.
The new technology called Identity Protection Technology (Or IPT) which would, if implemented correctly, enable computers to generate a One-time password that a supporting site would accept. Users would have to pair the hardware to the site earlier so that only authorized machines can sign in.
The technology would be built into Intel’s i3, i5 and i7 lines. No word on when this will be available to the general public but rest assured there would be quite a few scammers quite bummed with this latest bit of news.
