In doing so, he also helped spark the debate that’s endured ever since, over the anarchic freedoms that digital secrecy enables—the conflict between privacy advocates and governments known today as the “crypto wars.” A cheat-sheet for password crackers. In this article I am going to share some bash scripting commands and regular expressions which I find useful in password cracking.

When we look back at 2015, we will remember this as the year we launched our most ambitious technology project to date.

Let’s Encrypt Brings Free HTTPS to the World: 2015 in Review

EFF, Mozilla, and our partners gave the world the Let's Encrypt certificate authority. Certificates became available to the public on December 3. Let's Encrypt makes getting a digital certificate for an Internet site fast, free, and easy, so sites can easily enable HTTPS encryption (and some other encrypted protocols). We think this is a vital step in getting Web connections routinely encrypted, by reducing the cost and difficulty of getting a certificate that browsers require when making secure connections.

We know online encryption is essential. So for the past three years, EFF and our partners from Mozilla and the University of Michigan, plus a range of sponsors, pursued a plan to automate the process, removing financial cost and technical challenge. Cryptaris. StumbleUpon.

w00tsec: ARRIS Cable Modem has a Backdoor in the Backdoor

I started to study about some embedded device junk hacking hot topics and decided to talk about cable modem security. Braden Thomas keynoted at Infiltrate 2015 discussing about Practical Attacks on DOCSIS so, yeah, cable modem hacking is still mainstream. On November 21st I'll be at Salvador speaking on "Hacking cable modems: The Later Years". It's not a talk about theft of service and getting free Internet access. I'll focus on the security of the cable modems, the technology used to manage them, how the data is protected and how the ISPs upgrade the firmwares. Securing cable modems is more difficult than other embedded devices because, on most cases, you can’t choose your own device/firmware and software updates are almost entirely controlled by your ISP.

Major Instructional Areas. A (Terrifying) Traffic Analysis Of Windows 10. Note: Some readers have commented that the original source for the article is of questionably validity. If anyone can confirm or refute the original author's finding with actual data, please let me know in the comments, and I'll update this post accordingly. Some Czech guy did a traffic analysis of data produced by Windows 10, and released his findings the other day. His primary thesis was that Windows 10 acts more like a terminal than an operating system -- because of the extent of the "cloud" integration, a large portion of the OS functions are almost dependent on remote (Microsoft's) servers. The amount of collected information, even with strict privacy settings, is quite alarming.
