Project Basecamp: Tempest in a Teapot

I have been thinking about the DHS ICSJWG Spring Conference of a week ago, and the 2-hour debate at the conference on device security and the Digital Bond "Project Basecamp" project that was announced at January's S4 conference. The debate showed there is still resistance to device authentication, but among end users more so than among vendors. I think Jonathan Pollet's comments about this debate echoing the 1990's IT encryption debate are on the mark. That said though, I still think it will take a long time before device authentication becomes commonplace.
