Infosec 2040 – Neural Implants Hacked

What does the future hold for IT security? That was the question I was asked to address in my talk to the 50 th  anniversary meeting of the BCS IRMA (Information Risk Management and Assurance) group.  Here are some thoughts on the evolution of information security over the next 25 years made with help from the Information Security Group at Royal Holloway. Making predictions is always difficult and experts are notoriously poor at this.  When we make predictions we often look through a mirror at the past rather than through a telescope into the future.  Nevertheless...

How to secure banking transactions with mobile devices, if at all possible

Clearly, banking with your smartphone is quick and handy. But  again and again , we hear about huge breaches of mobile banking transactions. Greedy hackers are becoming more and more aggressive and their attacks more elaborated. Is there still a way to make mobile transactions relatively secure?  Often  mobileTAN is being praised  as a safe and flexible alternative to online banking with transaction authentication numbers on paper. However, no mobile system today is completely secure, not even iOS. Breaking it might cost a little bit more effort and money than with...

The Trouble with Encryption

Invariably it seems that whenever a new data breach is revealed – and that appears to be almost a daily, or at least more than once-weekly event – that a number of so-called gurus and pundits will bemoan the fact that the data was unencrypted. There’s always been one good reason why this was irrelevant, but recent news has uncovered a second reason. The first reason, one I’ve gone on about for quite some time, is that the data breaches are no longer “smash and grab” operations. The miscreants use social engineering to obtain legitimate credentials...

Time to educate the digital na(t)ives.

Each and every day we learn from the news about more or less sophisticated technical hacks that enable minor or major data breaches. In the best cases responsible disclosure models are applied to avoid these hacks to be in the wild at all. Most of the known issues are fixed within a more (e.g. Firefox) or less (e.g. Apple) reasonable timeframe and patched throughout many of the relevant installations. Several are not (and I am looking at you, Android).

Where to from here?

A recent post by John Dunn about what’s hot, and how long is it going to be hot, got me thinking – how does a security guru decide where to place his/her interest and how do you decide in which area to develop expertise? I’ve met many highly experienced security consultants who are stuck at level 3 in the OSI stack and don’t seem to realise that the wave has passed them by, there is no network perimeter anymore and the demand for expertise in configuring firewalls has, at best, plateaued. But rather than bemoaning our lot in life let’s look at the future,...

But is the tide turning and can we, for the first time, actually say that biometrics in one form or another are about to go mainstream?  The answer, you’ll be pleased to...
