To begin my series of prejudicial CodeCon session previews:
Lance James (Secure Science): Daylight Fraud Protection, 12:30pm Friday @ Codecon 2006
Daylight Fraud-Prevention* (DFP) is a suite of technologies offering a powerful proactive defense against scammers and online criminals...The DFP description and website are long on highfalutin' terminology but short on details, but here's what it appears DFP does in more plain language:
DFP techniques wouldn't be more secure via obscurity -- but they might entrap a larger proportion of naive phishers if generally not publicized. So SecureScience might enjoy more success showing their wares only in private to potential customers (banks), rather than on a public demo site and CodeCon. Their decision to present is thus curious.
The DFP public website has odd and paranoid disclaimers like "Confidential and Proprietary Information. FOIA Exempt. Patent Pending Daylight Technology." Should CodeCon require a patent-disclosure statement of presenters? Allow attendees to leave the room before they are "contaminated" by the presentation of a possible patent-troll?
Update (2:27pm Friday): I completely missed this session. Someone please let me know if I got anything wrong.«»
