New date, same Location: DeepINTEL 2018 has been moved

New in the DeepSec Ticket Shop: Tor Tickets for Early Birds and InfoSec Minds

We have a new category in the DeepSec ticket shop. We now have Tor tickets! Why is that? Well, information security relies heavily on the tools of the trade and the knowledge to use them. Tools can be created and used, knowledge can be shared and used. It’s not a new insight. The special Tor […]

Thoughts on the Information Security Skill Set

As mentioned in an earlier blog article we moved our office infrastructure to a new location. Once you use a space for more than a decade, thing inevitably pile up. So I had to sort through hardware, software (on optical storage hardware and floppy disks), lecture notes from a previous life, ancient project documentation, and […]

Infrastructure Update – Privacy Shield, Call for Papers, DNSSEC, ROOTS, and Humidity

Our blog has been a bit silent in the past weeks, because we had to move some stuff around and rearrange our infrastructure. The old office had a problem with too much water. Leaking is for whistleblowers, not water pipes. Rain is fine if the water can get to the drains. If you take a […]

DeepSec Web Server is moving today

We are doing a little relocation of computing infrastructure today. Between 2000 and 2200 CEST we will shift the computing node to a new location. Most content is still being delivered by the reverse proxy, but you may encounter errors for the call for papers manager. For those of you who got a 5xx HTTP […]

BSidesLondon 2018 Rookie Track Follow-Up

We would like to share some impressions about the BSidesLondon 2018 Rookie Track presentations. It gets hard and harder to tell which one of the talks is the best. And picking a winner is not the right approach. We do this, because we can only invite one person to DeepSec, and because the intention is […]

Big Data Analytica – What Attackers might be after

A while ago the Cambridge Analytica issue rocked the news and the online discussions about how personal data and profiles should be used. Frankly the surprise of data being abused comes as a surprise. The terms and conditions of most online portals, services, and platforms contains lots of rights – which you give to the […]

DSGVO / GDPR / RGPD Update – We have Policies and Stuff!

In information security policies are like opinions – everyone has one or more. So this is why we did some updating. You can now find our privacy policy on the main DeepSec web site and on our blog.

#efail, Crypto, HTML, PDF, and other complex Topics

You probably have noticed the #efail hashtag that came with the claim that the crypto world of PGP/GPG and S/MIME is about to end. Apocalyptic announcements were made. The real news is due for 15 May 2018 (i.e. the publication with all the facts). There was even the advice to stop using encryption until more […]

Reminder: DeepINTEL and DeepSec Call for Papers are still open

We have been a bit radio silent. We have to deal with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and we are moving our infrastructure across the Internet. The blog is already moved. Further services wait for their transport. The reason is simple maintenance work and hosting our data a bit more privacy-friendly. For example our […]

Processor manufacturers have rushed to fix the design of the chips and to patch products already in production. The vulnerabilities show that secure design is critical to our modern infrastructure.

Metrics, Measurement, and Information Security

Metric is a great word. Depending how you use it, it changes its meaning. The metric of a network path is quite different from the metric system. When it comes to measuring something, the might be an agreement. Why bother? Because we have heard of the term security metrics being used for something which should […]

Advanced and In-Depth Persistent Defence

The attribution problem in digital attacks is one of these problems that get solved over and over again. Of course, there are forensics methods, analysis of code samples, false flags, mistakes, and plenty of information to get things wrong. This is nothing new. Covering tracks is being done for thousands of years. Why should the […]
