Good afternoon everybody! I hope your day is going well.

Here are today's Interesting Information Security Bits from around the web.

  1. Your Simple Guide To Endpoint Encryption Options |
    Rich gives us a great resource for discussing and determining how and to what extent we should implement endpoint encryption.
  2. PCI, Risk Management & "The Blackberry Arsenal" << Risktical Ramblings
    A good story with some good take aways for both those answering to RFPs and those reviewing the answers to RFPs.
  3. BrokenHalo LABORATORIES >> Midnight Research Labs releases Depant
    This looks like a really neat tool. Scans your target for services with default passwords. Yummy.
  4. .:Computer Defense:. >> NoScript Force SSL
    Using NoScript, you can force sites to SSL that don't do a good job of it themselves.Hat tip: Michael Farnum and Security4All
  5. IT security guide: Understanding cyber-risks means knowing what questions to ask
    Something free from ANSI. You should go get your copy if for no other reason than that 🙂 Seriously, good stuff in here.
  6. Researchers hack wired keyboards, hijack keystrokes | Zero Day |
    Tempest for the 2000s. Looks like avoiding those wireless keyboards may not actually provide the security you may have felt that it did.

That's it for today. Have fun!
