Some of you may have already seen this. Yahoo! has implemented very easy to
use a sign-in seal to help users recognize a genuine Y! login page. The seal
is not tied to any user but to the browser/PC and to set it up a user
doesn't need to enter any username/password either. With a personal picture
it is very easy to recognize and use and there are no extra steps to perform
when doing a login i.e. the login flow remains as simple as it is today.

This story seems timely.  If consumers are going to hold institutions
accountable for phishing losses, institutions are going to demand an
infrastructure that they reasonable use to thwart phishing attacks.
