Protect Data Not Devices?

April 05, 2013 Added by:Simon Moffatt

As the devices becomes smarter, greater emphasis is placed on the data and services those devices access. Smartphones today come with a healthy array of encryption features, remote backup, remote data syncing for things like contacts, pictures and music, as well device syncing software like Dropbox. How much data is actually specifically related to the device?

SSL Wars – Little New Hope

March 28, 2013 Added by:Gary McCully

I thought it was time to write an update regarding the current state of websites that are using SSL/TLS to protect their web applications. Sadly, the current state of SSL/TLS is pretty pathetic. As of March 19, 2013 the SSL Pulse Project reported that many of the most popular sites on the Internet are still struggling with correctly implementing SSL!

Burdens of Proof: Cryptographic Culture & Evidence Law in the Age of Electronic Documents

February 19, 2013 Added by:Ben Rothke

When the IBM PC first came out 31 years ago, it supported a maximum of 256KB RAM. You can buy an equivalent computer today with substantially more CPU power at a fraction of the price. But in those 31 years, the information security functionality in which the PC operates has not progressed accordingly.

All Aboard

December 17, 2012 Added by:Randall Frietzsche

We need a well-conceived set of administrative and technical controls - our policy, while still acknowledging that every living creature on the planet is organically attached to a smart device, must dictate that the user will follow the policy at risk of termination...

Fraud Files: When Tax Fraud Won’t Go Away

December 11, 2012 Added by:Kelly Colgan

Though it could create procedural challenges for the IRS and the U.S. Postal Service, Congress could solve the problem by simply refusing to issue refunds before April 15. That way they could see who has duplicate returns filed, and investigate before signing over checks to the bad guys...

E-mailing Passwords - Practice What You Preach

November 19, 2012 Added by:Bill Mathews

That’s right, I got an email with my username and password listed right there. That probably doesn’t anger normal people (let alone drive them to write an article about it), but I have never been accused of being normal so I’m pretty annoyed. Here, in no particular order, are my reasons for the anger and frustration...

Steganography: Hiding In Plain Sight

October 18, 2012 Added by:Alan Woodward

I recently wrote a piece for the BBC in which I tried to explain why steganography (as opposed to cryptography) posed a threat. Or least it might.
