Can Blockchain Improve Identity and Access Management?Ian Yip of McAfee Says Technology Holds Promise
Blockchain has potential for identity-based applications, but there are many aspects of identity and access management that a blockchain alone doesn't solve, says Ian Yip of McAfee.
In this video interview at the recent RSA APJ 2018 conference in Singapore, Yip discusses:
- Why some experts believe blockchain technology could be a game changer in identity and access management;
- How blockchain technology might approach security risks around identity and access management;
- If viable blockchain-enabled identity and access and management technologies will emerge in the next few years.
Yip is McAfee's CTO for Asia Pacific. He previous was a director for cyber security at EY, security business lead for CA Technologies and product and business manager in Asia Pacific for NetIQ.
