ACM SIGMOBILE Seventh Annual International Conference on Mobile Computing and Networking Schedule-at-a-Glance The ACM SIGMOBILE Annual International Conference on Mobile Computing and Networking is dedicated to addressing the challenges of the wireless revolution. The conference serves as the premier international forum addressing networks, systems, algorithms, and applications that support the symbiosis of mobile computers and wireless networks. The conference covers all areas of mobile computing and wireless and mobile networking at the link layer and above. For those of you familiar with this annual conference, you will notice that our usual acronym is missing this year. We were asked not to use our traditional name in Italy on penalty of law since it is an existing Italian trademark. We are very pleased to announce that the 7th Annual ACM International Conference on Mobile Computing and Networking is supported by the Italian President of the Republic and the Comune di Roma." Dear Prospective Conference Participants,

El FBI advierte que el ciberterrorismo pronto será la mayor amenaza | Estados Unidos El director de la Oficina Federal de Investigaciones de EEUU (FBI), Robert Mueller, aseguró que el ciberterrorismo igualará o superará a las amenazas que suponen el modelo de terrorismo actual en un futuro no muy lejano. Muller, que declaró en audiencia ante el Comité de Inteligencia del Senado estadounidense sobre las amenazas mundiales, advirtió de que el FBI y las agencias de inteligencia deberán cambiar su estructura para hacer frente a este tipo de amenaza, cada vez más fuerte. "Es muy poco lo que hacemos hoy en día con los asuntos relacionados con Internet. El robo de propiedad intelectual, el robo de investigación y desarrollo, el robo de planes y programas empresariales para el futuro, todos ese tipo de asuntos son vulnerables de ser explotados por atacantes", explicó Mueller. En segundo lugar, señaló que las agencias de inteligencia "han de compartir información" de la misma manera que tuvieron que hacerlo a raíz de los atentados del 11 de septiembre.
Openwall Project - Information Security software for open environments SIPVicious Transforma tu red WiFi en una auténtica fortaleza Si queremos que nuestros datos estén seguros y que nadie pueda colarse en nuestra infraestructura, es esencial que la protejamos con los sistemas de seguridad más eficaces. En este informe os ofrecemos nuestros mejores consejos. Tecnología 1. 3G En lo que respecta a la seguridad en las redes de comunicaciones de tercera generación (3G), podemos estar tranquilos. También protocolos de seguridad GSM mejorados, englobados dentro del estándar 3GPP, que necesitarían de millones en equipo electrónico para tratar de espiar tan solo unos segundos una comunicación de voz o datos. Tecnología 2. DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) permite que los distintos dispositivos que pueda haber dentro de una misma red se interconecten entre ellos para compartir contenidos. La configuración de los algoritmos de seguridad depende fuertemente del fabricante. Tecnología 3. Tecnología 4. Tecnología 5. Respecto a HDPC, se trataba de una primera revisión propietaria de Intel cuyo algoritmo no fue publicado.

Mozilla Firefox Freedom of speech should not be sacrificed in the recording industry's war to restrict the public from making copies of digital music. EFF has asked a federal court to declare that scientists from Princeton and Rice University can publish their research on digital music security weaknesses at the USENIX Conference in August 2001. When a team led by Princeton Professor Edward Felten accepted a public challenge by the Secure Digital Music Initiative (SDMI) to break new security systems, they did not give up their First Amendment right to teach others what they learned. Yet they have been threatened by SDMI and the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) to keep silent or face litigation under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). EFF is asking the court to affirm the right of these scientists to publicly present what they have learned and the right of USENIX to publish the scientists' paper in their conference proceedings.

Laramies Corner (In)Security of the WEP algorithm This is some information about our analysis of the Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) algorithm, which is part of the 802.11 standard. This work was performed jointly by Nikita Borisov, Ian Goldberg, and David Wagner. If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Executive Summary We have discovered a number of flaws in the WEP algorithm, which seriously undermine the security claims of the system. In particular, we found the following types of attacks: Passive attacks to decrypt traffic based on statistical analysis. Our analysis suggests that all of these attacks are practical to mount using only inexpensive off-the-shelf equipment. Note that our attacks apply to both 40-bit and the so-called 128-bit versions of WEP equally well. WEP setup The 802.11 standard describes the communication that occurs in wireless local area networks (LANs). Problems WEP uses the RC4 encryption algorithm, which is known as a stream cipher.

T2 Magazine - From scratch to login promt with T2 2008-12-07, by Iulian Demetrescu I am a Linux user for about 15 years or so and i was always wondering about what is "under the hood" of it and how it's put together. I was especially interested in how a distribution is made up, since there are so many things that you have to take into account. Recently i was asked about one of my customers to deliver an embedded device capable of maintaining a small database, serve some pages via http and print some information on a thermal printer. But in my heart i wanted to build my own Linux. I mentioned earlier that there are some projects on the net, projects that can be used to build your own distribution. After days and days of search, download, try and fail, something caught my attention. Basically and in a few words, with T2 you can build your own Linux an a few days (and i am very serious about it). The build environment The Target It is the device on which the distribution will run. Yourself The development PC Step by step guide: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
