Re: Multifactor authentication is going to be the future...
Yes I'm not entirely keen to having an "always on" microphone device sitting around. Seems like yet another instrusion attack vector to me.

 

Also, what am I supposed to do with this Sonos unit if I buy a Google Home? :)

Re: Multifactor authentication is going to be the future...
Very cool concept. I think this is the next level of interactive voice response. In the beginning, IVR systems were really frustrating because they couldn't understand people very well. 

I would imagine these platforms have improved considerably, however.

Re: Multifactor authentication is going to be the future...
@mhhf1ve Indeed, these are major questions: are we in effect surrendering all right to privacy by purchasing such devices and setting them up in our homes. offices, and cars?  And will such listening devices lead to some other blocker gadget like the stickers placed on laptop cameras? Perhaps it's time to bring the cones of silence to the masses. It needs a bit of improvement in the design first, thoug.

Hmm. Google listening to your every word at home.. that's not a potential invasion of privacy issue AT ALL..? I wonder if "audio spying" is going to be a privacy concern soon? There's an easy way to put tape over your laptop camera... but microphones are everywhere and now they might always be on.

@mpouraryan there is no getting around the need for multifactor authentication for anything you wish to keep really secure. However, it is possible to make the various factors a bit less time consuming. That's exactly the idea behind introducing voice biometrics to take the place of the standard security questions. In fact, that's the essence of the business model for NICE, which sets up such systems for banks and other businesses with call centers. It cuts down on time for authenticaiton, which makes both the customers and the owners happier.

Re: Multifactor authentication is going to be the future...
@mpouraryan well, actually it now makes total sense to sideline Nest in favor of a whole home system that controls a lot more. However, some customers are not at all delighted with the situation, as presented here: http://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2016/04/08/internet-things-intellectual-property-laws-technology-cybersecurity-hackers-column/82698780/

If they do @Batye, They so to their detriment--as it is clearly shown with the increase in Ransomware attacks.
