IEEE Security & Privacy Magazine Tenth Anniversary Edition Loaded with Cigital
The January/February 2012 issue of IEEE Security & Privacy magazine, which is also the tenth anniversary edition (!), features three Cigital articles that you should read.
Invincea CEO Anup Ghosh (who incidentally once ran Cigital Labs many years ago) and I collaborate on a point/counterpoint titled “Lost Decade or Golden Era: Computer Security since 9/11“. Though Anup and I agree on most technical issues, we disagree on whether Computer Security is moving forward as a field. Anup thinks not. I think yes. What do you think?
Our conversation in that piece closes with a discussion around innovation. My upcoming panel at RSA is devoted to the topic, as is a recent edition of Computing Now. If you’re interested and provoked by what you read there, please plan to join us in San Francisco at the RSA Conference for a distinguished panel on Innovation and Technology Transfer in Security — leap day, February 29, at 8 AM. The panel includes Peter Denning, Brian Chess, Carl Landwehr, and Paul Kocher. Listen to a short promo for the panel here. (We hope to see you at RSA.)
Back to the S&P issue. Cigital Principal Scott Matsumoto participated in a big name roundtable on Authentication hosted by PayPal’s Markus Jakobsson. The lively discussion includes diverse opinions about the biggest problems in authentication, potential solutions, and the direction in which the field is moving.
Finally, the S&P issue also includes a Silver Bullet transcript (as each and every issue does). This edition covers my Show 55 conversation with Deb Frincke, a member of the Defense Intelligence Senior Executive Service and deputy director for research at the National Security Agency (NSA).
IEEE Security & Privacy plays an important role in the field at the critical intersection point between peer reviewed science and applied technology. Cigital is proud to play such a big role in the tenth anniversary edition.
Happy birthday S&P!
