Bank of America announces SiteKey

Bank of America just announced the SiteKey service, a very effective protection against phishing and pharming. The service will launch in Tennessee next month and roll out across the country by the end of 2005.

SiteKey service is based on the patented 2-way 2-factor authentication solution from PassMark Systems. For the most part of last year, I've been helping them build their core authentication technology. This year, my focus at PassMark has been the forensic technology.

Oh yeah. Hurrah!

Update: has a screenshot of a SiteKey screen for those more visually minded. That was actually a screenshot of this page at BoA.
