Openwall Project - Information Security software for open environments
Openwall software releases and other related files are also available from the Openwall file archive and its mirrors. You are encouraged to use the mirrors, but be sure to verify the signatures on software you download. The more experienced users and software developers may use our CVSweb server to browse through the source code for most pieces of Openwall software along with revision history information for each source file. We publish articles, make presentations, and offer professional services. We also maintain a wordlists collection for use with password crackers such as John the Ripper and with password recovery utilities, and a collection of pointers to password recovery resources on the Net. Finally, we host community resources such as mailing lists and wiki for users of Openwall software and for other Open Source and computer security folks.

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). Professor Felten has a career teaching people about security, yet the recording industry has censored him for finding weaknesses in their security. Frequently Asked Questions About Felten v.

Security War Games Information security keeps evolving, but our educational methods are not evolving rapidly enough to win the cold cyberwar Let's face it: Protecting your technical environment from internal and external attacks isn't much different than the age-old wars fought since mankind picked up a rock. The goal is to keep people in and/or keep people out. Just much less blood. How are you preparing your Blue Team from getting decimated on the virtual battlefield? With training and drills?

Equation Group: Meet the NSA 'gods of cyber espionage' Over the last couple of years we have been hearing about ever more sophisticated pieces of malware. From Stuxnet and Flame to Gauss and most recently Regin, all have shown increasing levels of technical prowess and all have been linked in some way with the US government. These were thought to be the pinnacle of a huge investment in offensive cyber capabilities by the world's wealthiest country.

Norse - Live Attack Intelligence Traditional signature- and policy-based network security systems are reactive and often rely on incomplete data that is not up to date. As the effectiveness of these solutions continues to decline, organizations are being exposed to increased risk of security breaches, data exfiltration, loss of reputation and revenue from today's advanced cyber threats. Norse DarkViking™ is a patented SaaS service that gathers "dark intelligence" from the parts of the Internet where bad actors operate and delivers an actionable risk score that enables organizations to drastically increase their overall security posture. DarkViking delivers machine-readable threat intelligence (MRTI) that can be integrated with an organization's existing security products and network devices.
