Pseudorandom Thoughts on Privacy, Security and Trust

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Commoditization of software: people can go out and buy computers very easily, software too. A system is only as secure as its weakest point. Feynman also got involved in safe-cracking - he would try to find patterns in the security. From a security implementor's point of view - stupid defenses only keep out stupid attackers. Planning for security in the design stage is rarely done. You have to think of how the users will circumvent security you put into place.

So I forwarded it to the security team saying 'login in and fix what is wrong'. Lawsuits - a lot of data information, collected from preferred customer cards - there was a lawsuit from someone who slipped on water and fell, so the supermarket chain that he sued checked his record and saw that he was buying beer every week, so they came back and said he was probably drunk at the time. What you say online is not private, it is not secure, it is what you put on the billboard on I-15.

Building a More Resilient, Data-Driven Economy

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

High resilience in the face of an uncertain, changing environment is the essence of evolution and natural selection.
