Soup To Nuts Identity Solutions From Two Of The Reasons Why Security Flaws Persist In Financial and Computational Systems?

Bad news: Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT) and Mastercard Inc. (NYSE: MA) have entered the Identity and Accees Management space as dual-developers of a so-called ‘universal identity scheme‘.

I, for one, will utilize my barely visible thumb whorls as proof of identity, rather than use of these clowns-of-code-combinatorial-output. Code Complete at Microsoft or Mastercard? Puhleaze… The former can barely patch it’s own desktop and server code successfully month-to-month, and the latter suffers from declining security capabilities since the failed-for-purpose-deployment-and-implementation of the so-called security chips in newly issued credit cards. Both comapanies suffer from proverbial lack-of-focused-leadership on their core businesses.
