Security Gone South

I've been on vacation with my wife and our daughter for one week at Gran Canaria (Spain). The picture on the left here shows parts of the hotel we stayed at. The tour operator as well as the hotel name shall remain anonymous in this blog post, as I don't think my observations are unique for this hotel only.

Being on vacation doesn't mean leaving my interest in security & safety at home, hence this blog post.

Call for Papers: Passwords^11

"Passwords^10 is probably the best security conference I have ever attended"
- Note on evaluation form after Passwords^10, Dec 8-9, 2010

After a fantastic conference with 38 participants (!) in December last year, we have received many many requests from participants as well as others world-wide to do another conference on passwords only. So with the same close-to-zero budget as last year, I am happy to announce our Passwords^11 : Call for Papers!

Tell me your password...

And I'll tell you who you are, where you work, and what kind of work you do. Not that you would ever lie about your password of course. :-)

I saw an online article on March 4 at Computerworld Norway, entitled "Bryter seg inn i norske bedrifter" (Google translated to English). At a recent security seminar held by Norwegian ISF, a previous colleague of mine held an interesting presentation. Read the 2-page article at Computerworld first, notice some of the statements from Christian Jacobsen (now at Secode).

Pwnd. Again.

In October 2010 I wrote the blog post Can You See My Password? I wrote that as a result of a near-successful "hack" against me, and as part of a little "competition" I'm running with friends and colleagues. Unfortunately I have to write another post, this time stating the embarrassing fact: I GOT PWND. (again).
