Slack encryption will soon include enterprise key management

Slack will soon give businesses an additional level of security by letting them manage their encryption keys. The feature will appeal to a small number of large organizations for now, but it could help the startup expand its footprint in the enterprise market.

Slack already encrypts the messages and files that flow through its premium platform for large businesses, called Enterprise Grid. Now, the vendor plans to give customers control of the keys that unlock that encryption.

“Enterprise key management is another significant step that Slack needs to take to meet increasing security demands — and according to their promise, without hurting speed or usability, [which are] common side effects of EKM,” said Wayne Kurtzman, analyst at IDC.

Slack touted the forthcoming feature as providing “all the security of an on-premises solution, with all the benefits of a cloud tool.” But the vendor clarified that the keys will be created and stored in Amazon’s public cloud.

“In the future, we may expand this offering to support an on-prem or private cloud [hardware security module] key store,” said Ilan Frank, director of Slack’s enterprise products.

Cisco Webex Teams lets businesses manage encryption keys on premises or in the cloud. It also provides end-to-end encryption. In contrast, Slack only encrypts data in transit and at rest, which means the data may get decrypted at certain routing points in the cloud.

Slack has no plans to change its encryption model, Frank said, citing potential “usability drawbacks” related to search and advanced app and bot features.

Symphony also offers end-to-end encryption and enterprise key management. Its team collaboration app has found a niche among banks and other financial firms, which generally have strict compliance and regulatory standards.

“I think, from Slack’s case, it’s a good first step in allowing customers to control their own keys,” said Zeus Kerravala, founder and principal analyst at ZK Research in Westminster, Mass. But Slack should also ensure businesses can store those keys in their own data centers and eventually pursue end-to-end encryption, he said.

Slack’s enterprise key management feature will be particularly useful for external communications done through Slack, said Alan Lepofsky, a vice president and principal analyst at Constellation Research, based in Cupertino, Calif.

When partners communicate through a shared channel in Slack, the company that established the channel will have control over the encryption keys.

“I think this will be a very important use case, as it’s that external communication where you really want to ensure security and privacy,” Lepofsky said.

Slack expects to make enterprise key management available for purchase to Enterprise Grid customers sometime this winter.

Slack looks to appeal to more large enterprises

Slack launched Enterprise Grid last year in an attempt to expand beyond its traditional base of teams and small businesses. The platform lets large organizations unify and manage multiple Slack workspaces.

Slack said in January that more than 150 organizations had deployed Enterprise Grid, including 21st Century Fox, Target, Capital One and IBM. But the vendor did not mention the product in May when it announced that 8 million people at more than 500,000 organizations worldwide were using Slack daily.

As the vendor tries to win more contracts with large businesses, Slack faces competition from vendors that already have deep penetration in the enterprise market — notably Cisco and Microsoft.

Cisco recently tied its team collaboration app to the online meetings platform Webex, which has 140 million users. Also, Microsoft has been aggressively building out the features of Microsoft Teams, which integrates with the Office 365 productivity tools relied upon by 135 million people.

“[Enterprise key management] is an important addition to Slack as it becomes more mature for enterprise needs,” Lepofsky said.

As AI identity management takes shape, are enterprises ready?

BOSTON — Enterprises may soon find themselves replacing their usernames and passwords with algorithms.

At the Identiverse 2018 conference last month, a chorus of vendors, infosec experts and keynote speakers discussed how machine learning and artificial intelligence are changing the identity and access management (IAM) space. Specifically, IAM professionals promoted the concept of AI identity management, where vulnerable password systems are replaced by systems that rely instead on biometrics and behavioral security to authenticate users. And, as the argument goes, humans won’t be capable of effectively analyzing the growing number of authentication factors, which can include everything from login times and download activity to mouse movements and keystroke patterns. 

Sarah Squire, senior technical architect at Ping Identity, believes that use of machine learning and AI for authentication and identity management will only increase. “There’s so much behavioral data that we’ll need AI to help look at all of the authentication factors,” she told SearchSecurity, adding that such technology is likely more secure than relying solely on traditional password systems.

During his Identiverse keynote, Andrew McAfee, principal research scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, discussed how technology, and AI in particular, is changing the rules of business and replacing executive “gut decisions” with data intensive predictions and determinations. “As we rewrite the business playbook, we need to keep in mind that machines are now demonstrating excellent judgment over and over and over,” he said.

AI identity management in practice

Some vendors have already deployed AI and machine learning for IAM. For example, cybersecurity startup Elastic Beam, which was acquired by Ping last month, uses AI-driven analysis to monitor API activity and potentially block APIs if malicious activity is detected. Bernard Harguindeguy, founder of Elastic Beam and Ping’s new senior vice president of intelligence, said AI is uniquely suited for API security because there are simply too many APIs, too many connections and too wide an array of activity to monitor for human admins to keep up with.

There are other applications for AI identity management and access control. Andras Cser, vice president and principal analyst for security and risk professionals at Forrester Research, said he sees several ways machine learning and AI are being used in the IAM space. For example, privileged identity management can use algorithms to analyze activity and usage patterns to ensure the individuals using the privileged accounts aren’t malicious actors.

“You’re looking at things like, how has a system administrator been doing X, Y and Z, and why? If this admin has been using these three things and suddenly he’s looking at 15 other things, then why does he need that?” Cser said.

In addition, Cser said machine learning and AI can be used for conditional access and authorization. “Adaptive or risk-based authorization tend to depend on machine learning to a great degree,” he said. “For example, we see that you have access to these 10 resources, but you need to be in your office during normal business hours to access them. Or if you’ve been misusing these resources across these three applications, then it will ratchet back your entitlements at least temporarily and grant you read-only access or require manager approval.”

Algorithms are being used not just for managing identities but creating them as well. During his Identiverse keynote, Jonathan Zittrain, George Bemis professor of international law at Harvard Law School, discussed how companies are using data to create “derived identities” of consumers and users. “Artificial intelligence is playing a role in this in a way that maybe it wasn’t just a few years ago,” he said.

Zittrain said he had a “vague sense of unease” around machine learning being used to target individuals via their derived identities and market suggested products. We don’t know what data is being used, he said, but we know there is a lot of it, and the identities that are created aren’t always accurate. Zittrain joked about how when he was in England a while ago, he was looking at the Lego Creator activity book on Amazon, which was offered up as the “perfect partner” to a book called American Jihad. Other times, he said, the technology creates anxieties when people discover they are too accurate.

“You realize the way these machine learning technologies work is by really being effective at finding correlations where our own instincts would tell us none exist,” Zittrain said. “And yet, they can look over every rock to find one.”

Potential issues with AI identity management

Experts say allowing AI systems to automatically authenticate or block users, applications and APIs with no human oversight comes with some risk, as algorithms are never 100% accurate. Squire says there could be a trial and error period, but added there are ways to mitigate those errors. For example, she suggested AI identity management shouldn’t treat all applications and systems the same and suggested assigning risk levels for each resource or asset that requires authentication.

“It depends on what the user is doing,” Squire said. “If you’re doing something that has a low risk score, then you don’t need to automatically block access to it. But if something has a high risk score, and the authentication factors don’t meet the requirement, then it can automatically block access.”

Squire said she doesn’t expect AI identity management to remove the need for human infosec professionals. In fact, it may require even more. “Using AI is going to allow us to do our jobs in a smarter way,” she said. “We’ll still need humans in the loop to tell the AI to shut up and provide context for the authentication data.”

Cser said the success of AI-driven identity management and access control will depend on a few critical factors. “The quality and reliability of the algorithms are important,” he said. “How is the model governed? There’s always a model governance aspect. There should be some kind of mathematically defensible, formalized governance method to ensure you’re not creating regression.”

Explainability is also important, he said. Vendor technology should have some type of “explanation artifacts” that clarify why access has been granted or rejected, what factors were used, how those factors were weighted and other vital details about the process. If IAM systems or services don’t have those artifacts, then they risk becoming black boxes that human infosec professionals can’t manage or trust.

Regardless of potential risks, experts at Identiverse generally agreed that machine learning and AI are proving their effectiveness and expect an increasing amount of work to be delegated to them. “The optimal, smart division of labor between what we do — minds — and [what] machines do is shifting very, very quickly,” McAfee said during his keynote. “Very often it’s shifting in the direction of the machines. That doesn’t mean that all of us have nothing left to offer, that’s not the case at all. It does mean that we’d better re-examine some of our fundamental assumptions about what we’re better at than the machines because of the judgment and the other capabilities that the machines are demonstrating now.”

Google Hangouts Meet adds interoperability with competitors

Businesses will soon be able to join meetings on Google’s web conferencing platform, Google Hangouts Meet, using Microsoft Skype for Business and video conferencing systems from Cisco and Polycom.

At the same time, Google is helping several competing video conferencing vendors better integrate with Google Calendar, so users will be able to schedule and join meetings on those platforms without downloads or plug-ins.  

The announcements underscore Google’s commitment to competing with Microsoft Office 365 in the enterprise collaboration market. The consumer tech giant continues to invest in G Suite’s cloud-based applications for web conferencing and team messaging, while also embracing integrations with a wide range of vendors.

“Google has remained a market contender in video conferencing for several years,” said Roopam Jain, an analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “However, its direction in the past was not concerted, and it seemed to be waiting to squarely jump in with an enterprise-ready tool.”

Google is now partnering with startup Pexip to make Google Hangouts Meet interoperable with standards-based video hardware and Skype for Business, starting later this month. Pexip’s code works behind the scenes, so everyone can participate in the same meeting from different interfaces.

Google Hangouts Meet’s incompatibility with third-party communications applications has slowed adoption of the product since its release last year, particularly among businesses already invested in video conferencing products from legacy vendors, Jain said.

“This is a smart move by Google in a very competitive market, where businesses look for a stable and open collaboration platform that they can invest in,” Jain said. It could also convince more existing G Suite customers to start using Google Hangouts Meet, positioning Google “as a viable alternative to any other leading video conferencing solution in the market,” she said.

Google Calendar add-ons for video conferencing

Cisco Webex is working with Google to let customers schedule and join Webex meetings directly from Google Calendar. The vendors Arkadin, GoToMeeting, LogMeIn, Dialpad, RingCentral, Vidyo and Vonage are working on similar add-ons, Google said.

Google will make those add-ons available in the G Suite app store “in the coming months.” It plans to release details for developers so additional web conferencing vendors can sync with Google Calendar in the future.

Google is also expanding its interoperability with Microsoft Exchange, announcing it will make it possible for G Suite users to book rooms, equipment and other resources registered in Exchange.

Google Hangouts Chat to add guest access

Businesses using Google Hangouts Chat will be able to add external participants to communication channels in the coming months — a feature already supported by all other leading team collaboration apps on the market today.

Google made Hangouts Chat available to G Suite subscribers earlier this year to keep its enterprise portfolio competitive with Microsoft Office 365, which includes Microsoft Teams.

In a 2018 Nemertes Research survey of more than 600 businesses, 10.5% of respondents cited Hangouts Chat as their primary tool for team collaboration. Google ranked fourth behind Microsoft Teams (32.9%), Cisco Spark (21.1%) and Slack (14.5%).

Google is continuing to improve its collaboration products, but it still needs to integrate them with Gmail better, said Irwin Lazar, an analyst at Nemertes Research, based in Mokena, Ill. For example, users should be able to launch a chat from a Gmail thread.

“They will grow as a threat, while at the same time also integrating with potential competitors,” Lazar said.
