New Technology, DTRelay, Fixes Known Security Vulnerabilities In OAuth Protocols Used By All The Major Companies
30 11 2017
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Nov. 30, 2017 -- Today there are numerous security flaws including Krack attacks, client-side token vulnerabilities, SSL vulnerabilities, and countless other examples. It is time to change the way secure data is transported across the internet. There is a new technology, DTRelay (www.dtrelay.com), that fixes many of the known vulnerabilities in OAuth that plague companies such as Google, Twitter, Yahoo, and others.
If companies keep doing the same thing, they would be insane to think they will see different results. Every month stories are reported on the news about major data breaches.
