Local shared objects (LSOs), commonly called Flash cookies (due to their similarities with HTTP cookies), are pieces of data that websites which use Adobe Flash may store on a user's computer.

Local shared object

Local shared objects have been used by all versions of Flash Player (developed by Macromedia, which was later acquired by Adobe Systems) since version 6.[1] Flash cookies, which can be stored or retrieved whenever a user accesses a page containing a Flash application, are a form of local storage. Similar to that of cookies, they can be used to store user preferences, save data from Flash games, or to track users' Internet activity.[2] LSOs have been criticised as a breach of browser security, but there are now browser settings and addons to limit the duration of their storage. Storage[edit] Local shared objects contain data stored by individual websites. Adobe Flash Player does not allow third-party local shared objects to be shared across domains.

Configure the following on the Active Directory (AD) Server and the Palo Alto Networks device: The chips are down for Moore’s law. Next month, the worldwide semiconductor industry will formally acknowledge what has become increasingly obvious to everyone involved: Moore's law, the principle that has powered the information-technology revolution since the 1960s, is nearing its end.

The chips are down for Moore’s law

A rule of thumb that has come to dominate computing, Moore's law states that the number of transistors on a microprocessor chip will double every two years or so — which has generally meant that the chip's performance will, too. The exponential improvement that the law describes transformed the first crude home computers of the 1970s into the sophisticated machines of the 1980s and 1990s, and from there gave rise to high-speed Internet, smartphones and the wired-up cars, refrigerators and thermostats that are becoming prevalent today.

NTIA Finds IANA Stewardship Transition Proposal Meets Criteria to Complete Privatization

Commerce Department’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) announced today that the proposal developed by the global Internet multistakeholder community meets the criteria NTIA outlined in March 2014 when it stated its intent to transition the U.S. Government’s stewardship role for the Internet domain name system (DNS) technical functions, known as the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) functions. The announcement marks an important milestone in the U.S. Government’s effort to complete the transition of the Internet’s domain name system and ensure that the Internet remains a platform for innovation, economic growth, and free speech.

For the last 18 years, the United States has worked with businesses, technical experts, governments, and civil society groups to establish a multistakeholder, private-sector led system for the global coordination of the DNS.

Network virtualization, under the umbrella of Software Defined Networking (SDN), presents an opportunity for network innovation but at the same time introduces a new weakness which will more than likely be targeted once solutions become more commercially available.

Whether the underlying technologies used are OpenFlow or Overlay Virtual network, network virtualization solutions are based on a network controller which can be attacked in different ways. A successful attack on the controller will neutralize the entire network operation for which the controller is responsible – it can be said that there will be a new type of attack that will put the entire network operation under denial of service conditions. A little background on software defined networking (SDN) which includes within it the overall trend of network virtualization and openflow: Figure 1 - Decoupling the network control logic from the network hardware. Data governance. Data governance is an emerging discipline with an evolving definition.
