Silicon Valley Legends Launch Beyond Identity in Quest to Eliminate Passwords
Internet icons Jim Clark and Tom Jermoluk (past founders of Netscape, Silicon Graphics and @Home Network) have launched a phone-resident personal certificate-based authentication and authorization solution that eliminates all passwords.
Hoping to actually make the long foretold end of passwords happen, a startup called Beyond Identity believes it can hasten the demise of the memory-taxing access ritual by embedding a personal certificate authority into mobile devices.
Tom Jermoluk, the longtime Silicon Valley inventor and investor, feels bad that we're all still using passwords. So he and his longtime business partner, Netscape co-founder Jim Clark, have a new solution.
