    Greetings microsoft.public.security:

    We are looking for help testing the most recent release of our
    two-factor authentication system. All product testers that fill out a
    brief survey and/or provide solid feedback on the product will receive
    a 50% discount on the cost of the WiKID server appliance (a $4750
    value) plus 25% off seat license costs for the first year.
    Non-profits, including researchers and open-source development projects
    may be eligible for additional discounts or complimentary licenses.
    So, if you're at all interested in strong authentication, please give
    it a look.

    Testers will need a suitable server for the system. Minimum
    requirements are: A pentium (III 700mhz or higher), 256 RAM, at least
    one NIC, 500 meg + harddrive. The ISO will completely erase the hard
    drive. The server can also be tested in VMWare. WiKID supports
    RADIUS, LDAP, and has a plugin for Steal Belted Radius and Citrix Web
    Interface, plus an API for custom applications in COM or Java. We
    also supply ASP scripts to automate the token setup based on trusted AD
    credentials.

    The WiKID token client runs on a variety of platforms: Windows, Linux,
    Mac, Palm, PocketPC, J2ME and Blackberry (BREW coming soon).

    Download of the WiKID ISO is protected by WiKID Authentication. Set up
    a a WiKID client here: http://www.wikidsystems.com/signup/index.jsp,
    and you will be taken to the log in for the download site. All we ask
    for is a valid e-mail address. You will not be bombarded with sales
    calls even if you do enter a real phone number ;). Log into the
    extranet with your WiKID client and download the ISO and the
    documentation.

    Why would you care and what is special about WiKID?

    WiKID Systems combines asymmetric cryptography and a PIN/one-time
    passcode transaction to authenticate users. Our architecture is unique
    in that:

    * WiKID uses a software client with asymmetric encryption plus a
    PIN/one-time password transaction to securely authenticate users more
    securely than certificates with none of the hassles of hardware-based
    symmetric solutions
    * we can automate the initial validation process based on existing
    trusted credentials
    * one client can handle multiple relationships with multiple servers
    across multiple enterprises simply and securely
    * one user can have multiple clients
    * the system is highly extensible - we have extended it to reset AD LAN
    passwords

    In sum, we are less expensive than other solutions, easier to implement
    and maintain and more extensible, at least that's what we're trying to
    test ;).

    Please feel free to contact me directly as well: nowen at wikidsystems

    Sincerely,

    Nick Owen

    I'm sure your Marketing Dept. can find some good focus groups for you.

  3. Yo, Nick:

    The last time I checked, testers were generally paid (sometimes unpaid) and
    were given the devices or the software to test.
