"Traditional authentication, where you are algorithmically looking at users of your devices, will have to change; the use cases are going to be broadly different for individuals," Dunkelberger says.

In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2019 in San Francisco, Dunkelberger discusses:

  • Challenges of IoT security;
  • How IoT networks differ from traditional networks;
  • How can CISOs implement authentication in an IoT environment.

Dunkelberger has more than 30 years in technology. Prior to leading Nok Nok Labs, Dunkelberger served for eight years as co-founder and CEO of PGP Corporation, until it was acquired by Symantec in 2010. He has significant experience in SaaS infrastructure and enterprise software, having served as entrepreneur-in-residence at Doll Capital Management, president and CEO of Embark, and COO of Vantive Corporation.
