Prepare for another attack on encryption in the U.S. The EARN-IT Act purports to be about protecting children from predation, but it’s really about forcing the tech companies to break their encryption schemes.
If you know tech you automatically know policy, right? Or maybe those policy people need to listen to you instead? Maybe what is really needed is a different approach. Bruce Schneier takes a look at the perfect storm of tech and policy and how we need to get it right if we want to stay ahead of where emerging tech is racing.
Security is paramount and we do everything we can to make our systems more secure. But what happens if they’re insecure at the origin? Bruce Schneier has some thoughts about supply-chain security in this great post.
Opening backdoors in encryption protocols makes us all safer, right? Or does it actually make us all more vulnerable? Bruce Schneier has a wonderful post on this subject and the coming policy debate.
Bruce Schneier digs into some commonly tossed around consumer security tips. He digs into what can actually work, what is flat out bad advice, and what is probably overkill.
Bruce Schneier breaks down why traditionally encryption may be in trouble once quantum computing becomes a reality, and what security researchers are doing to keep things locked down.
Traveling is already hard enough. Between flight delays and hotel issues and all the other timezone related craziness you have to contend with we now also have to worry about border searches. In times of yore, it was only the truly invasive governments that wanted to peek at our devices. However, in the past couple […]
Security researches have found that ultrasonic tones can crash your hard drive and even brick a system, because evidently we can’t have anything nice.
Gmail doesn’t distinguish if you put extra dots in your email. Netflix does. Oh, not a problem you say? Bruce Schneier shows how two mundane data practices can come together to create a security exploit.
