The biggest news for V3 readers over the past week has been the fallout from the shutdown of Silk Road 2.0 and other dark web sites, which had led some to believe that the Tor anonymous network is compromised.
Security architect at Voltage Security Luther Martin said that many of the sites uncovered were not taking advantage of all the Tor network's anonymising powers, playing down concerns that the network itself is insecure.
To improve security in another area, credit card provider MasterCard has revealed plans to use biometric information to replace passwords in the online payment process.
Working in partnership with Visa, MasterCard said it wants to replace 3D Secure with a new protocol standard to bypass password interruptions in internet transactions, harnessing technologies such as the Apple Touch ID fingerprint scanner found on iPhones and iPads.
