2 very good articles in my weekly news post touch on why identity is SO 
important.

Identity needs at least 2-3 layers of authentication.

1) Username/Password
2) 2 factor authentication like Google Authenticator, Symantec VIP 
Authenticator, Yubikey, SMS text, Challenge/Response One-Time-Passwords, 
etc.
3) Biometric Fingerprint or eyeball scan.

Here are the 2 articles quicker access.
