November 06, 2012 Added by:Joel Harding

I had one sysadmin a few years ago who demanded we all use 64 character passwords and every other character had to switch type. It was something like ^y?M3aI`B[a/ and so on...

Rethinking the consumer/enterprise operating system

October 28, 2012 Added by:Rafal Los

When Microsoft converged their kernel and made a single version of Windows most people were relieved, especially Microsoft developers and security types. It was now going to be easier to maintain the code base - but was that the right call? I think the jury may still be out...

October 22, 2012 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

So far though Senator Lieberman I have only seen gross generalities out of you and others about how dire things are and how scared we all should be.
