Advances in attacks on network security over the last few years have led to many high-profile compromises of enterprise networks and breaches of data security. A new attack is threatening to expand the potential for attackers to compromise enterprise servers and the critical data on them. Solutions are available, and they will require action by company officers and administrators.
This spoofing problem is solved by proper use of Extended Validation (EV) SSL certificates for authentication. Moving certificate-based enterprise authentication to EV SSL would therefore protect an organization against this form of attack.
