The Ultra-Simple App That Lets Anyone Encrypt Anything

When NSA leaker Edward Snowden wanted to communicate with journalist Glenn Greenwald via encrypted email, Greenwald couldn’t figure out the venerable crypto program PGP even after Snowden made a 12-minute tutorial video. The Next Big Programming Language You’ve Never Heard Of. Getty Andrei Alexandrescu didn’t stand much of a chance.

The Next Big Programming Language You’ve Never Heard Of

And neither did Walter Bright. When the two men met for beers at a Seattle bar in 2005, each was in the midst of building a new programming language, trying to remake the way the world creates and runs its computer software. Your prezis. The Five Best Tools for Creating Videos Without Installing Software. Over the years I've published some lists and reviews of free tools for creating videos online.

The Five Best Tools for Creating Videos Without Installing Software

Quite a few of those tools have been for creating simple videos that are really just automated, audio slideshows. See Animoto for an example of this. There's nothing inherently wrong with having your students use those tools, but at some point you will want to take your video projects to the next level. These are the five tools that I recommend for creating and editing videos without installing any special software. Design and publish beautiful maps. 15 Effective Tools for Visual Knowledge Management. Since I started my quest a few years ago searching for the ultimate knowledge management tool, I’ve discovered a number of interesting applications that help people efficiently organize information.

15 Effective Tools for Visual Knowledge Management

There certainly is no shortage of solutions for this problem domain. Many tools exist that offer the ability to discover, save, organize, search, and retrieve information. However, I’ve noticed a trend in recent years, and some newer applications are focusing more on the visual representation and relationship of knowledge. I believe this is in part due to the wider adoption of mind mapping (and concept mapping), and leveraging concepts and advances in the semantic web community. Most traditional personal knowledge management (PKM) or personal information management (PIM) applications offer the same basic set of features: World's Largest Professional Network.

IP subnetting made easy

It's a great primer for students and a nice refresher for others. IP subnetting is a fundamental subject that's critical for any IP network engineer to understand, yet students have traditionally had a difficult time grasping it. Over the years, I've watched students needlessly struggle through school and in practice when dealing with subnetting because it was never explained to them in an easy-to-understand way. Hyper-V Network Virtualization Overview. With the success of virtualized datacenters, IT organizations and hosting providers (providers who offer colocation or physical server rentals) have begun offering more flexible virtualized infrastructures that make it easier to offer on-demand server instances to their customers.

Hyper-V Network Virtualization Overview

This new class of service is referred to as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). Windows Server 2012 R2 provides all the required platform capabilities to enable enterprise customers to build private clouds and transition to an IT as a service operational model. Windows Server 2012 R2 also enables hosters to build public clouds and offer IaaS solutions to their customers. 13 20 20AWS 20Basics 20 20Your 20First 20Virtual 20Private 20Cloud.

How software defined networking and cloud computing pave the way towards a digital society

Software defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV) are just two facets of the so-called “IT-zation or softwarization” of telecom infrastructures. SDN decouples the software, control plane, from the forwarding hardware of nodes such as routers and switches and executes the control software in the cloud or in any standard or hybrid processing resources made available, such as blades or servers.

UAV or UAS? An Unmanned Aerial, or Air, Vehicle (UAV) is according to MSN Encarta an "uncrewed reconnaissance vehicle: an uncrewed aerial vehicle that can fly over combat zones and staging areas, dropping supplies to troops, releasing bombs, carrying out reconnaissance on enemy forces.

" This definition would have everyone believe that UAVs are only used in military scenarios. This is far from the truth. Cybersecurity Act of 2012 (Proposed) The Cybersecurity Act of 2012 (S. 2105) was introduced by Senator Joseph Lieberman in the U.S. Senate on February 14, 2012. Ruling could force Americans to decrypt laptops.

American citizens can be ordered to decrypt their PGP-scrambled hard drives for police to peruse for incriminating files, a federal judge in Colorado ruled today in what could become a precedent-setting case. Judge Robert Blackburn ordered a Peyton, Colo. woman to decrypt the hard drive of a Toshiba laptop computer no later than February 21 -- or face the consequences, presumably including contempt of court. Blackburn, a George W. Bush appointee, ruled that the Fifth Amendment posed no barrier to his decryption order. The Fifth Amendment says that nobody man be "compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself," which has become known as the right to avoid self-incrimination.

How Seriously Should the Threat of Cyber Warfare be Taken? Cyber warfare is very much a contentious issue. To briefly illustrate this, in 1993, John Arquilla and David Ronfeldt wrote an article entitled “Cyber War is Coming!” The Most Overlooked Part of Your Data Security - Kyle Marks. By Kyle Marks | 10:30 AM June 14, 2013 Organizations constantly replace outdated computers, servers, laptops, copiers, and countless other types of electronic devices to keep up with technology and enhance worker productivity. This rush to upgrade, however, creates a challenge: large numbers of excess electronics must be managed and disposed of properly. Desktop Virtualization for Small & Mid-Sized Business.
