John Grimm, director at Thales e-Security, claimed ticket fraud has increased because e-tickets are easier to replicate and fake than traditional printed tickets.

He argued that the industry could follow the lead of the airline sector in making this harder.
"By utilizing digital signatures for boarding pass barcodes, their integrity and authenticity can be validated. This helps protect customers against forgery and enables validation upon check-in," Grimm explained.

"One of the most interesting findings is that companies are using their PKI for many more things that originally intended," says John Grimm, senior director of Product Marketing at Thales e-Security. "But where we're heading and seeing is that the PKI that they are reliant on isn't up to the task and wasn't designed to do what people need it to do."

Enterprises are running up to seven applications off a PKI that was designed for one or two applications, Grimm says. Also, some of these systems are older and not able to handle modern encryption protocols and key lengths.
The companies need to develop a transition plan to modernize PKI, Grimm says. This is necessary to not only update legacy systems but also enable system for cloud access. But this leads to another issue, there's a lack of expertise when it comes to supporting these legacy systems, Grimm says. Often the employees that stood these up are long gone and there's nobody on staff that has the knowledge to transition to a modern system.
There's also the train called IoT speeding down the tracks towards enterprises, Grimm says. This could see an explosion for PKI as each device is issued a certificate but these call for modern, flexible and scalable systems. Enterprises are trying to figure out the best way to use PKI to secure these systems.
The survey found other issues when it comes to PKI as well. Enterprises are protecting their PKI root keys primarily with passwords. This is not ideal and enterprises should be using hardware security modules, Grimm says. Only 28% of those surveyed were using HSMs.
