HOT NEWS: Google will releases Titan Security Key to prevent phishing attacks


Google’s plans to prevent phishing
attacks involved selling its tightened security key to corporate customers the
search giant said that it will sell a security key based on the internal
security keys Google uses for its own staff as cyber security reporter Brian
Krebs wrote earlier in July Google’s use of security keys have
helped protect more than 85,000 Google employees from being scammed by phishing
attacks the new keys will be available in either USB or Bluetooth to connect to
a person’s computer the idea is that people won’t be able to access certain
services that have been registered by the security key in the case of a
phishing attempt in which a miscreant sends a bogus email that contains a link
to a malicious website and lures a person to provide sensitive information
hackers would be unable to access user email accounts or other sensitive
accounts because they would need the physical key to do so although companies
like RSA offer smartphone apps that show people randomized temporary numerical
codes that they must enter before accessing sensitive accounts security
keys like Titan or those sold by security company yubico require people
to press a button that’s affixed to the device Google said that the keys
announced during the company’s cloud next even tin Wednesday in San Francisco
are now available to its Google Cloud customers it will be available to the
general public to purchase via the Google store at an unspecified date
