Hack Our New Authentication Protocol, Says Centrelink
Centrelink's smart card architect, Glenn Mitchell, has invited all and sundry to break its new authentication protocol, PLAID.
The welfare agency released the the draft implementation of PLAID last month. The agency created it because off-the-shelf solutions didn't match Centrelink's "business needs," Mitchell says.
He now hopes crypto-geeks all over the world will rip into the software, now in its second draft. "We need to make sure it's as secure as we believe it to be," he told the Risky Business podcast. "There may be issues... if anyone does any issues with it then we're more than happy to take feedback on board and see what we can do to review it."
