The NSF is providing $10,000.000.00 for this? Really?
That amount seems rather excessive for development of 2D pattern making software.

Just How Serious IS Heartbleed? You Probably Don’t Want To Know.

April 14th, 2014

One of the most common causes of data getting in the wrong hands is the loss of mobile devices that often contain a frightening amount of private information. I want to share a protection option that worked for me. Tracer tags (mystufflostandfound.com) let someone who finds your lost stuff contact you directly without exposing your private information. I use them on almost everything I take when I travel like my phone, passport and luggage after one of the tags was responsible for getting my lost laptop returned to me in Rome one time.

Just How Serious IS Heartbleed? You Probably Don’t Want To Know.

April 12th, 2014

We can take proactive steps and “keep fingers crossed, and hope that your data wasn't among that which was compromised”. It is great that some organizations are ensuring that “Heartbleed vulnerability protections are securely in place.”, but all kinds of organizations have scrambled to fix the bug, but as the vulnerable technology has been in place on up to two-thirds of all websites for approximately two years, the damage may already be done.

However, it’s important to note that not all organizations’ websites or software was affected. For instance, earlier versions of OpenSSL does not contain the vulnerable code and remains secure.

So what can we do to try to prevent this in the future?

First, while this could have wide reaching effects, some of which we may not know for a long time, not all SSL/TLS communications can be compromised.

But waiting for better software or protocols isn’t really an option. While new software will inevitably come along, there are limited guarantees, especially in the case of open-source technology such as OpenSSL, that it will be bug-free. In fact, we should expect that they will be breached.

The most viable option is proactive security of the data itself. By tokenizing or encrypting sensitive data at the point of creation or acquisition, it can be made useless to potential thieves, even in memory.

There’s no perfect answer to fix years of exposure, but moving forward, adopting the most proven, vendor-backed data security solutions that protect the data itself can offer significantly reduced risk over protocols alone.

5G Internet is Coming - But How Will We Use It?

April 2nd, 2014

Well 5G internet is a reality which will come in future because we can see the rapid speed of technology from time to time and according to my opinion, the internet will be restricted to the mobile devices because smartphones are getting popularity and the quantity of users to shop online through their smartphyones is increasing day by day. Also, those companies will win that are offering iPhone and Android application development services.

Driverless Cars: The Latest Developments

Mr. Rinderknecht asks: "If have an option of flying in a plane with two pilots or a plane with no pilots, we all know which one you will trust." Given that 90% of accidents are pilot error (just ask Sully Sullenberger or the humans who blew it coming into SFO a few months ago), clearly the answer is "the Bot",
