(IN)Secure Magazine 20 is Out

by kriggins on February 24, 2009

in Uncategorized

One of my favorite information security magazines is (IN)Secure. The folks at Help Net Security put out a consistently great publication and the price is right, free. The March edition as published today. You can get it here. Below is a partial list of the articles in this edition:

  • Improving network discovery mechanisms
  • Building a bootable BackTrack 4 thumb drive with persistent changes and Nessus (by me)
  • What you need to know about tokenization
  • Q&A: Vincenzo Iozzo on Mac OS X security
  • A framework for quantitative privacy measurement
  • Why fail? Secure your virtual assets
  • Phased deployment of Network Access Control
  • Web 2.0 case studies: challenges, approaches and vulnerabilities
  • ISP level malware filtering
  • Q&A: Scott Henderson on the Chinese underground
  • AND MORE!
