How to Safely Shop Online This Holiday Season

 Cache   

The moment Halloween ended, the nation entered an earlier-than-ever holiday shopping season online that has already begun and won’t end until early January, 2020.

Why begin the holiday shopping season so early this year?

Since the Thanksgiving holiday weekend arrives late in 2019, Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals are already arriving with retailers launching a blur of discounts to try and make up for the perceived lost shopping days - when compared to the early Thanksgiving holiday weekend in 2018.

For example, CNET highlighted these Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals that actually start on November 7. Others have already begun.

USA Today revealed deals from Bed Bath & Beyond as well as Kohls deals.

Forbes provided these deals from Walmart, Best Buy and more. While Fox News proclaimed: “Black Friday is 3 weeks away right? Nope, it's here now.”

As I was doing research for this article, I learned that Black Friday has become a global event, with big sales as far away as China. Indeed, the Google analytics show worldwide holiday shopping trends that are complex, unique by industry and country. Overall, big increases are expected in search traffic – with some industries doubling. In the US, retailers see an 80 percent increase in their search traffic throughout November.

And the sales forecast news is generally very good for retailers according to Inc. Magazine:

“Cyber Monday is expected to pull in $9.4 billion this year, a $1.5 billion increase from last year's online sales tally for the Monday after Thanksgiving. The real detail retailers need to know? Thirty percent of all sales made this Cyber Monday, which falls on December 2, will likely be made in the four-hour window of 7 to 11 p.m. Pacific time.

That's according to Adobe Analytics' Holiday Forecast 2019, which analyzed data on trillions of visits, products, and transaction data from U.S. retail websites. Adobe also surveyed more than 1,000 U.S. consumers in October as a companion to its findings.

The report notes that retailer conversion rates, which measure the number of people who visit a website and then make a purchase, are predicted to double during the four-hour surge in sales. Adobe says these ‘golden hours of retail’ are due to ‘deal FOMO,’ or the fear of missing out on last-minute deals near the end of the day.”

Beyond Black Friday and Cyber Monday: A Wider Holiday Sales Trend?

And taking a big step back there are several significant trends developing as we head into the 2020s. While Black Friday sales within stores remain a robust and huge part of holiday shopping, a new cybermania is emerging which extends well beyond Cyber Monday. (We may even need a new name – any ideas?)

CNBC recently reported that Cyber Monday will excite shoppers more than Black Friday. Here are some highlights:

Deloitte finds 53 percent of people will rely on Cyber Monday for discounts, while 44 percent say they’re planning to snag promotions on Black Friday this year. Deloitte’s annual holiday study also finds shoppers are expected to spend $1,496 per household this holiday season. The bulk of spending, or $596, is going toward experiences like travel and dining out.

Business Insider offers this very helpful piece which answers the frequent question: Is Black Friday or Cyber Monday Better (for sales)? Here’s an excerpt:

“A good rule of thumb is that Black Friday is a better time to buy newer, big-ticket items. It's also the best day to shop in stores. Cyber Monday is a better day to shop for tech deals and smaller gifts. You'll also see slightly better discounts online.

For items you're likely to buy once a year or less, you'll probably find better discounts on Black Friday. Anything you'd buy as a gift will likely see better discounts on Cyber Monday.”  

Online Safety and Security First

But regardless of when you go online to do your Christmas shopping this holiday season, there remain some tips that can help you stay safe and secure - beyond the frequent calls to change your profile password (or not use the same password) at websites.

To begin, a bit of history. This topic is certainly not new, and many of the themes and basic questions are the same as a decade ago. You don’t want to get disciplined at work for violating policy, so be sure to know what’s allowed and what isn’t allowed.

I find it interesting to look back to where we have been, and compare behaviors to office life today with articles and blogs from a decade ago on Cyber Monday.  

Here are a few relevant examples from the past:

CSO Magazine: Encourage Cyber Monday or Grinch.exe? and Cyber Monday & Redefining Acceptable Use – Again

Government Technology Magazine: Web Sites Struggle on Black Friday: Cyber Monday is Next and Cyber Monday: Are you shopping from work?

Nevertheless, most organizations have loosened their holiday shopping policies and now permit employees (even government employees) to shop at appropriate times over the holiday season on work computers (usually during breaks).

So here are some of my favorite tips to help whether at home or work:

1. Moneycrashers.com:  Avoid Sites With Poor Security Practices –

“Don’t gamble with your identity. Stay away from retail sites with lackadaisical security practices. Two key practices stand out in particular: SSL certificates and Verisign domain protection.

SSL is an encryption protocol that renders it much more difficult (though not impossible) for bad actors to steal payment card information and other personal data during the payment process. Look for “https” at the beginning of the site’s URL. You should never enter payment card information on non-“https” pages, period.

Verisign provides site administrators with a modicum of protection against hacking attacks and malware. Like SSL, it’s not foolproof, but it helps. Sites without Verisign protection are vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks, spoofing, and other types of cybercrime.

If you don’t already, consider using a web browser that can identify potentially compromised websites. …”

2. Vitalchek.com – Offers ten basic safety tips for online and offline life. Here’s one that important:

“Use a credit card for your online purchases versus other payment methods. Almost all credit cards have fraud protection, meaning if there is a data breach and your card’s information is taken, you won’t be held responsible for any of the charges. If you are involved in a fraud situation, your credit card provider will handle this and send you a new credit card. The same courtesies may not be extended from other online payment methods like an electronic transfer from your bank account.”

3. State Farm – Offers tips for in the store, in your car and online. Here are their online tips:

Stick to retailers you know and preferably, have shopped with before. Research a business you haven’t purchased from before by checking customer reviews or complaints with the Better Business Bureau. Never commit to a deal that seems too good to be true. Refrain from using pubic Wi-Fi to make purchases, or use a VPN to avoid hackers intercepting your information. Check a webpage’s security by looking for the lock icon in the URL field, and making sure the URL starts with “https”, not just “http”. The “s” means the site is safer and more secure.

Final Thought

One thing to keep in mind is that many people have heard these tips before, but let their guard down over the holidays when rushing for an online deal that is about to expire. Also, people will go places they don’t normally go this time of year to save on presents or get the best deal.

So even if you think you know all of this, double-check to make sure that everyone in your family (and in your office) is following best practices.

Happy shopping.

Defending the Perimeter Isn’t Enough on Election Hacking

 Cache   

Defending the Perimeter Isn’t Enough on Election Hacking(Bloomberg Opinion) -- The U.S. is now just a year from the 2020 presidential election. In 2016, we saw foreign interests influence the outcome of a presidential race when Russian hackers infiltrated the computer networks of officials in both parties, and then selectively disseminated the emails of Democrats. Is the nation in better shape to counter such threats this time around?It doesn’t look like it.For example, Microsoft recently reported an attack by Iranian hackers on the emails of current and former U.S. government officials, journalists covering political campaigns, and accounts associated with a presidential campaign. There is reason to believe that the attack, which consisted of more than 2,700 attempts on targeted email accounts, was backed by the Iranian government.According to security researchers and intelligence officials, hackers from Russia and North Korea have also begun targeting organizations that work closely with 2020 presidential candidates.Foreign enemies continue to see U.S. elections as an opportunity to subvert the will of the American people and exert control over our governance at the highest level. This most recent Iranian attack is a reminder that both political organizations and private enterprises face significant cybersecurity risks.Unfortunately, the legacy electoral systems most voters and organizations rely on do not offer sufficient protection in the modern digital landscape. When facing nation-state adversaries with billions in funding and information resources to rival the U.S. National Security Agency, Americans have to think beyond the popular two-factor authentication protocols. We need to protect not only the voting systems themselves, but the email, file-sharing and other communication systems of ancillary campaign groups, local officials and plenty more.What can we do to defend ourselves better? In my military and cyber experience, the operating principle is that the sophisticated attacker will eventually find a way through any perimeter defense. As supreme allied commander of NATO in the late 2000s, I pushed to strengthen the alliance’s nascent Cyber Defense Center in Tallinn, Estonia — but saw firsthand how easily Russian hackers penetrated our digital perimeter.Protections must be designed so that even if the attacker succeeds in getting to the target, the target remains safe. To do so, we need to think in terms of four core principles for secure communication systems that will be resilient to the inevitable breach.First, systems must employ end-to-end encryption. (Disclosure: I serve on the board of an information-security firm, Preveil Llc.) If we assume that attackers will be able to exploit vulnerabilities in server software or the defense mechanisms that guard it, then the only way to keep information secure is to make sure that it’s never exposed, even while on the server. With end-to-end encryption, data is only accessible to the sender and the recipient — it isn’t accessible en route to the server or on the server. Even if the server is compromised, the data is not. Think of this as the difference between working in an Ebola environment in a body suit, which will eventually weaken at the seams, and being vaccinated against the disease. The perimeter defense is far from worthless, but the vaccine — the internal protection — is vastly better. A second concern is the vulnerability of anything in the system that becomes a juicy target. While end-to-end encryption eliminates the server as a single entity that can be compromised, if the system has administrators with global access, a high-yield single target for attackers remains. To solve this problem, access to large amounts of sensitive user data should be granted only after being approved by several trusted individuals. Similar to the systems used for nuclear-launch codes, encryption cryptography can break up individual user keys into fragments that are distributed among multiple people. Therefore, administrative access to users’ accounts is achieved only when all key shards are present, so there is no single administrator who attackers can compromise to gain access.Third, it’s time to do away with passwords. According to the report of the 2019 Verizon data breach investigations, 80% of hacking-related breaches involve compromised and weak credentials. Rather than depending on fallible passwords, secure communication systems should now grant account access using a private encryption key. A 256-bit encryption key has a lot of different possible combinations of characters — nearly 10 to the 78th power, the same as the number of atoms in the universe — and is not crackable with existing computational power. Because the key is stored only on the user’s physical device, remote access isn’t possible.Finally, it is important to protect the most sensitive communications from socially engineered phishing and spoofing attacks. Traditional digital communications provide an opening for impostors to trick users into clicking on dangerous links or leaking information. When only known users are able to communicate with each other about an organization’s most confidential information, that risk of “lookalike” accounts is eliminated. The strongest security systems don’t depend on users to be perfect, or to always exercise good judgment. They make sure that data is safe even when humans are flawed. Getting at this “insider threat” is crucial.Security is a serious matter for organizations of all types, not just political parties during an election season. Organizations should rethink their security preparedness with a deeper understanding of the adversaries’ capabilities. They need to make the shift to secure systems modeled around these four core principles — including adopting ready-to-use encrypted communications systems for email and file-sharing.Between now and Nov. 3, 2020, there should be few higher priorities than improving security to stop hackers and foreign powers from threatening American democracy itself.To contact the author of this story: James Stavridis at jstavridis@bloomberg.netTo contact the editor responsible for this story: Tobin Harshaw at tharshaw@bloomberg.netThis column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the editorial board or Bloomberg LP and its owners.James Stavridis is a Bloomberg Opinion columnist.

Azure series : Elastic queries

 Cache   

Introduction

Not all people know that it is possible to run queries on other Azure SQL Databases. Normally with on-premise databases, we are used to use the following cross database query :


SELECT * FROM SourceDB.[SalesLT].[Customer]


But it will run into an error :

Msg 40515, Level 15, State 1, Line 16
Reference to database and/or server name in 'SourceDB.SalesLT.Customer' is not supported in this version of SQL Server.

From Microsoft : "The solution is using elastic queries. The elastic query feature enables you to run a Transact-SQL query that spans multiple databases in Azure SQL Database. It allows you to perform cross-database queries to access remote tables, and to connect Microsoft and third-party tools (Excel, Power BI, Tableau, etc.) to query across data tiers with multiple databases. Using this feature, you can scale out queries to large data tiers in SQL Database and visualize the results in business intelligence (BI) reports"

For this blogpost I've used the following link by David Postlethwaite and there other great resources on this topic too.

This is the setup of the databases:

I've gathered the steps to create elastic queries in this blogpost.

1. Create the login

First start with creating a login in the master database for the user we are going to use.


-- Go to Master database
USE Master
GO

CREATE LOGIN ElasticUser WITH PASSWORD = '6rJbb3Gh@Bq):ngE'
GO



2. Create the user in the source database

Create the user in the SourceDB database and assign it to the db_owner role.

USE SourceDB
GO

CREATE USER ElasticUser FOR LOGIN ElasticUser
GO

ALTER ROLE [db_owner] ADD MEMBER ElasticUser
GO


2. Create the user in the destination database

Then create the user in the DestinationDB database and again assign it to db_owner role


USE DestinationDB
GO

CREATE USER ElasticUser FOR LOGIN ElasticUser
GO

ALTER ROLE [db_owner] ADD MEMBER ElasticUser
GO


Create the master key

Create the Master Key in the DestinationDB database with a strong passowrd. This will create a symmetric key in order ro protect the private keys in the database.


/*
DROP MASTER KEY
GO
*/

CREATE MASTER KEY ENCRYPTION BY PASSWORD = '6rJbb3Gh@Bq):ngE';


Create the database scoped credential

Then create the database scroped credential with the CREATE DATABASE SCOPED CREDENTIAL statement.  The credential is used by the database to access to the external location anytime the database is performing an operation that requires access. The credential is used by the database to access to the external location anytime the database is performing an operation that requires access.


/*
DROP DATABASE SCOPED CREDENTIAL henniecredential
GO
*/

CREATE DATABASE SCOPED CREDENTIAL ElasticCredential WITH IDENTITY = 'ElasticUser',
SECRET = '6rJbb3Gh@Bq):ngE';


Create the external data source

The CREATE EXTERNAL DATA SOURCE is used for the connectivity and is used by the elastic queries. The script for creating the external data source is as follows:

/*
DROP EXTERNAL DATA SOURCE [sourceDB]
GO
*/

CREATE EXTERNAL DATA SOURCE sourceDB WITH
(TYPE = RDBMS,
LOCATION = 'server-280742145.database.windows.net',
DATABASE_NAME = 'SourceDB',
CREDENTIAL = ElasticCredential
) ;
GO


Create the schema

I'm using the Customer table from the AdventureWorksLT database and the table is created in the SalesLT schema and therefore we need to create a schema with the same name in the destinationDB.


/*
DROP SCHEMA IF EXISTS SalesLT
GO
*/
CREATE SCHEMA SalesLT
GO



Create the external table

The following statement creates the external table for the SalesLT.Customer table.


/*
DROP EXTERNAL TABLE [SalesLT].[Customer]
GO
*/

CREATE EXTERNAL TABLE SalesLT.[Customer](
[CustomerID] [int] NOT NULL,
[NameStyle] bit NOT NULL,
[Title] [nvarchar](8) NULL,
[FirstName] nvarchar(50) NOT NULL,
[MiddleName] nvarchar(50) NULL,
[LastName] nvarchar(50) NOT NULL,
[Suffix] [nvarchar](10) NULL,
[CompanyName] [nvarchar](128) NULL,
[SalesPerson] [nvarchar](256) NULL,
[EmailAddress] [nvarchar](50) NULL,
[Phone] nvarchar(2
5) NULL,
[PasswordHash] [varchar](128) NOT NULL,
[PasswordSalt] [varchar](10) NOT NULL,
[rowguid] [uniqueidentifier] NOT NULL,
[ModifiedDate] [datetime] NOT NULL,
)
WITH
(
DATA_SOURCE = sourceDB
);



After running the DDL statements, you can access the remote table “Customer” as though it were a local table. Azure SQL Database automatically opens a connection to the remote database, processes your request on the remote database, and returns the results.

Test the External Table

Test the external query with a select query and see if we can get some results back.


SELECT * FROM SalesLT.[Customer]


And this results in the following result!!


Now if there is a difference in the datatype for one tiny length or datatype you will receive the following error

The data type of the column 'Phone' in the external table is different than the column's data type in the underlying standalone or sharded table present on the external source.

Final thoughts

This blogpost is about creating external tables using that in elastic queries.

But i can't get a backup to run without these errors. Each database has been configured to use a different db_recovery_file_dest folder, and the size is set at 10G Can anyone suggest what i can change to make these backups work please. Getting a bit desperate now :) Many thanks James

A policy landscape of sexual orientation, gender identity and the internet

Introduction

Two groundbreaking advances in international human rights have been made in the last half decade, with recognition by intergovernmental bodies that human rights law applies equally to all persons regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity (SOGI), and that human rights law is equally applicable online as offline. However, these achievements have not been without significant advocacy efforts by civil society. While internet rights are being increasingly integrated and addressed across the international human rights system, developments on SOGI have been laboured, politicised and isolated, with no state consensus. This report considers the trends, shifts and convergences in international policy making, using a geopolitical analysis.

A brief history

Sexual orientation and gender identity

Activists have been advocating for international recognition of SOGI-related rights as far back as the Beijing World Conference on Women in 1995,1 with concerted efforts to develop state awareness and recognition of the issues since a failed resolution on human rights and sexual orientation in 2003. 2 Brazil’s introduction, and later withdrawal, of a draft text was a catalyst for a number of civil society groups and activists working on sexuality and gender issues to communicate and coordinate more consistently to develop strategies to engage the UN human rights system on these issues. 3 This collective organising led to states delivering a series of joint statements at the UN General Assembly and Human Rights Council (HRC) between 2005 and 2011; 4 increasing support for SOGI rights from a handful of countries to nearly half of the UN member states; and finally the adoption by the HRC of the first ever UN resolution on “human rights, sexual orientation and gender identity” in June 2011, 5 and the second in September 2014. 6

Internet rights

Although civil society has been involved in internet policy and governance spaces since the internet was created, the internet has only recently featured in international human rights policy development arenas. The impact of the internet on human rights was first recognised at the international level by an HRC resolution on freedom of expression in 2009. 7 Since then, the UN has adopted a number of resolutions developing international policy on this theme. In particular, the HRC adopted a resolution on “The promotion, protection and enjoyment of human rights on the Internet” 8 in June 2012 with 85 state co-sponsors, which affirmed that the same human rights apply online as offline. The following year in November 2013, the General Assembly adopted a resolution on the right to privacy in the digital age, 9 which was followed up by the HRC in March 2015 with a procedural resolution of the same title, creating a UN expert mechanism on the right to privacy. 10 Since the 2009 resolution on freedom of expression, a number of thematic UN resolutions have addressed internet rights. 11

Comparing intersectional recognition

While internet rights concerns have effectively been mainstreamed into initiatives dealing with other human rights issues, sexual orientation and gender identity remain isolated from relevant state-negotiated human rights documents. 12

Internet rights have been recognised by consensus in a number of intergovernmental policy documents, such as resolutions on freedom of opinion and expression, freedom of association and assembly, and the safety of journalists. 13 The use of the internet and other forms of technology in propagating harassment and violence against women has been acknowledged by the Commission on the Status of Women 14 – the primary UN political body tasked with women’s rights issues – and by the General Assembly in a resolution on protecting women human rights defenders. 15

Conversely, there is a huge struggle to include any language that might be associated with SOGI in any government-negotiated documents at the international level, with such language overwhelmingly negotiated out of draft texts or put to a vote. For example, even the word “gender” has become controversial because some governments insist that gender can only denote biological sex, refusing to accept the concept of gender as a social construct or to recognise identities beyond the male-female binary. 16

As a result, where SOGI language has been included in negotiated documents, it has been so virtually in isolation from intersecting fields, such as violence or discrimination against women or the protection of human rights defenders. The only UN human rights resolution to date referencing SOGI, apart from the HRC SOGI resolution itself, is the biennial General Assembly resolution on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions. While the strong opposition to recognising SOGI-related rights means the discussion is reduced to violence and discrimination (the areas that have a possibility of gaining consensus), the reference in the “killings” resolution is nonetheless hotly contested each time, with attempts to vote the language out of the resolution during the final adoption process.17

Despite the fact that a broad number of thematic and country-specific UN human rights experts regularly report a vast array of infringements of the rights of LGBTI persons,18 in social and economic rights as well as civil and political rights, the political bodies have so far failed to take the intersectional approach that has been an attribute of developments on internet rights.

Politics of sexual orientation and gender identity rights

International intergovernmental debate on SOGI is a delicate matter, and unfortunately plays out in ways that are politically divisive and strategically counterproductive. Although there is a slow but steady increase in support for these issues from states from all regions, they are still perceived as primarily Western priorities despite the fact that the first UN SOGI resolution was tabled by South Africa and Brazil, and the second by Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Uruguay.

This is partly because Western states have styled themselves as international leaders on SOGI, critiquing discriminatory laws and practices outside of their regional group, and is compounded by certain Western states using aid conditionality to apply pressure on ex-colonies to repeal colonial-era criminal provisions on same-sex relations. 19

These practices have created a “West versus the rest” dynamic which contributes to the geopolitical polarisation on gender and sexuality-related rights that is reflected at the international level, and alienates potential support from those states that are open to discussing SOGI-related rights, but are opposed to Western hegemony on the international stage.

The politicisation of SOGI plays out in intergovernmental human rights policy development spaces such as the HRC in divisive and regressive ways. Firstly we have seen a division of state positions, generally along lines of regional and political blocs. 20 Traditionally this has been Western and most Latin American states supporting SOGI issues, opposed by Russia, the Vatican, most of the African Group and members of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). States within these groups that have dared to support SOGI issues have faced harsh censure from their peers. 21

Secondly, concepts such as cultural relativity, traditional values and protection of the family have been introduced and manipulated in these spaces, primarily by the religious right wing – the OIC, the Vatican, Russia, and conservative groups such as the UN Family Rights Caucus.22 Since 2009 the HRC has adopted various documents undermining the universality of rights, including three resolutions on “traditional values” and two on “protection of the family”. 23 In general, the support and opposition for these initiatives has been in line with positions against and for SOGI-related language respectively.

The politicisation of sexuality rights in international forums means that foreign policy is often at odds with national-level standards and developments, particularly on rights relating to gender identity. For example, some Western states, such as Belgium, France, Norway and Switzerland, present themselves as champions of LGBT rights in international debates while requiring transgender people to undergo sterilisation in order to legally change their gender, 24 a policy that the European Court of Human Rights has ruled to be a violation of the rights to privacy and family life. 25 Conversely, some states that have culturally established and documented forms of gender diversity 26 – and in the case of Pakistan leading case law recognising the rights of hijras27 – claim that such diversity is contrary to their cultural, moral or religious values when it comes to international debate. 28 This is a terrible contradiction of domestic reality and foreign policy.

State positions on SOGI in the international bodies have almost become a symbolic representation of one side versus another in the greater struggle for a new world order that replaces Western hegemony. Sadly, this positioning is to the detriment of human rights, including through the development of international legal norms and standards that exclude LGBTIQ persons.

Politics of internet rights

In comparison to the tumultuous international debates on SOGI, internet rights policy has been developing relatively smoothly, with consensus resolutions and references in the UN General Assembly, the HRC and the Commission on the Status of Women. This is not to suggest that states unanimously respect or support internet-related rights, but that opposition is more nuanced and complex than the open hostility that some governments express on SOGI.

While there does indeed appear to be international consensus on the issue of access to technology, a customary division of state positions on other issues such as freedom of expression remains unchanged in how states see their validity online or offline. During the HRC plenary panel on freedom of expression on the internet in 2012, China called on the international community to promote internet access in developing countries while also stating that freedom of expression could undermine social stability and national security.29 Cuba has both expressed concern about issues of access to information and communications technology (ICT) and lamented the United States (US) monopoly of the internet. 30

Furthermore, the geopolitical divide over internet rights is not as clear-cut as it is on SOGI issues. When Edward Snowden leaked classified information from the US National Security Agency (NSA) in 2013, the US was in the unusual position of being criticised by many of its peers in the West.31

Indeed, states from all regions have relished the opportunity to criticise the US in the wake of the Snowden revelations. Although not explicitly critical of US policy, pre-existing anti-US sentiment meant that the resolutions on the right to privacy in the digital age quickly garnered support amongst states such as North Korea, 32 Russia, Cuba and China. 33 Consequently, it could be argued that a politicisation of internet rights issues has been to the benefit of consensus-building on international human rights policy development on these issues.

SOGI versus internet rights policy

As SOGI language is a notorious key to destroying consensus in government negotiations, states have used sexual orientation references as a bargaining chip to block or undermine developments that they oppose.

For example, sexual orientation language was used by Western states to bargain against references to the “defamation of religions” in international discussions on racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance, both during the Durban Review Conference in 2009 and in follow-up meetings and negotiations. 34

This highly questionable tactic arose in discussions on internet rights in negotiations on a resolution on the right to privacy in the digital age at the UN General Assembly in 2013, when a key ally of the US proposed including a reference to sexual orientation. Some of the Five Eyes 35 countries readily supported the proposed language, while other states that were supportive of the resolution theme objected, knowing they would not be able to join consensus on a text that contained sexual orientation language. This was understood to be a strategy to break consensus on an issue that those states implicated in the revelations of deep breaches of privacy rights could not otherwise break without admitting that they did not support the key message of the resolution.

As the Five Eyes countries were openly attempting to water down the text of the privacy resolution, 36 it seemed likely that sexual orientation language was actually being introduced in order to polarise state positions on the text as a whole, and potentially lead to a vote. In effect, the US and its allies pitted sexual orientation against the right to privacy in a failed attempt to undermine international condemnation of and action on the infringement of rights that is mass surveillance.

Moving towards an intersectional approach

Although SOGI and internet rights have developed independently from one another at the international level, the slow increase in state support for SOGI-related rights in international human rights bodies, and the increasing attention being given to internet rights in a number of different thematic resolutions, means that the UN could constructively address their intersection in the near future.

The prevailing geopolitical divide is likely to continue to obstruct the inclusion of SOGI in UN resolutions. However, with internet rights being addressed in a number of negotiated thematic texts, it is not unreasonable to suggest that relevant issues could be included in a future substantive resolution on SOGI.

Furthermore, the HRC resolution on the right to privacy in the digital age mandated the appointment of a UN Special Rapporteur on the right to privacy. The Special Procedures mechanisms 37 have been key allies in raising violations of the rights of LGBTIQ persons across a broad section of thematic and country-specific mandates. A recent report of the Special Rapporteur on the right to freedom of opinion and expression to the HRC highlighted how encryption and anonymity in digital communications enable persons persecuted because of sexual orientation or gender identity to exercise the right to freedom of opinion and expression, as well as providing, for some, the only way to securely explore basic aspects of identity such as one’s gender or sexuality. 38

The new Special Procedures mandate has been tasked to look at the right to privacy, “including in connection with” (i.e. but not limited to) the challenges arising from new technologies. Many SOGI rights issues clearly fall under the mandate focus on privacy. It will remain to be seen whether the Rapporteur chooses to address human rights concerns relating to LGBTIQ persons in the execution of the mandate.

Conclusion

With a number of consensus resolutions and documents addressing internet rights, and the creation of an expert mandate on the right to privacy, it is safe to conclude that these issues are now firmly on the UN agenda, and will continue to be mainstreamed into the work of the HRC. Meanwhile, SOGI rights remain segregated with no regular or institutionalised attention to ongoing violations. It will likely remain extremely difficult to get states to consider the human rights of LGBTIQ persons on their substantial merit as long as SOGI continues to be politicised and manipulated by both supportive states and the opposition. The new expert mechanism on the right to privacy could see these two issues being addressed concurrently and with an intersectional analysis for the first time. It remains to be seen whether intergovernmental debate will mature beyond political strife to welcome such an analysis.

18 This report primarily uses the language of “sexual orientation” and “gender identity”, which have been acknowledged by the intergovernmental bodies, but also refers to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer persons using the relevant acronyms LGBT, LGBTI or LGBTIQ, depending on the particular context. For example, while activists and human rights defenders might use the language of Queer rights, this term has not been taken up by the UN, but the UN does recognise and use L,G,B,T and I. Other language yet to be referenced in UN negotiated documents includes “gender expression” and “bodily integrity”.

Secret codes, ciphers, and telegrams. It used to be that in order to transmit information during wartime, various industries encoded their messages letter by letter with an elaborate system--much like today's digital encryption. Grant breaks down some of those secret codes--and shares the story of the most extensive telegram ever sent. Plus, we've all been there: Your friends are on a date, and you're tagging along. Are you a third wheel--or the fifth wheel? There's more than one term for the odd person out. Finally, a rhyming quiz about famous poems. For example, what immortal line of poetry rhymes with: "Prose is a nose is a hose is a pose"? Plus, women named after their mothers, variations on "Happy Birthday," at bay, nannies' charges, and a blues singer who taught us to jump steady.

A London Journey Through the World of Codebreaking, Ciphers and Secret Communications

 Cache   

Editor's Note: Before reading about London's Science Museum, you might take a stroll online at the National Security Agency's National Cryptologic Museum here in the United States - below: World War 2: U.S. Navy Cryptanalytic BombeNational Cryptologic Museum image

London's Science Museum launched a major new exhibition exploring communications intelligence and cyber security over the course of 100 years.  Top Secret: From ciphers to cyber security marks the centenary of GCHQ, the UK’s Intelligence, Security and Cyber agency which was first acknowledged in law in 1994. Through never-before-seen objects, interactive puzzles and first-person interviews, the exhibition explores the challenges of maintaining digital security in the 21st century and the unique technologies used throughout the history of one of the UK’s intelligence agencies. 
 
Among over 100 objects in the exhibition that reveal fascinating stories of communications intelligence and cyber security from the last century are cipher machines used during the Second World War, secure telephones of the type used by British Prime Ministers, and an encryption key used by Her Majesty The Queen.

Sir Ian Blatchford, Director of the Science Museum Group, said: ‘With the help of GCHQ, our expert advisors on the exhibition, we are privileged to reveal some of the previously hidden histories of the UK’s intelligence community. By exhibiting over 100 remarkable objects, we aim to engage visitors with the people and technologies that keep us safe, at a time when cyber security has never been more important to people’s everyday lives.’ 

The exhibition also explores the work of GCHQ’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) which works to defend against cyberattacks. Visitors will be able to see a computer infected with the WannaCry ransomware which, in 2017, affected thousands of people and organisations including the NHS. 

Jeremy Fleming, Director GCHQ said‘This unique collaboration between GCHQ and the Science Museum is a great way to mark our Centenary and give visitors previously-unseen insights into how GCHQ has helped protect the UK over the past 100 years. For the first time the public will be given a glimpse into our secret history of amazing intelligence, world-leading innovation, and most of all brilliant people. And — as the threats to the UK become more diverse and more complex - it’s a chance to encourage the next generation of recruits. Because at GCHQ we believe that with the right mix of minds anything is possible.’Enigma machine

The exhibition includes the story of the encryption technology used by the Krogers who, until their arrest in the 1960s, were part of the most successful Soviet spy ring in Cold War Britain. Visitors will also be able to see the remains of the crushed hard drive alleged to contain top secret information which was given by Edward Snowden to The Guardian in 2013.Pickwick phone

Exhibited for the first time in public is the 5-UCO, one of the first electronic and fully unbreakable cipher machines. It was developed to handle the most secret messages during the Second World War, including sending Bletchley Park’s decrypted Enigma messages to the British military in the field and was in use into the 1950s. This ultra-secret machine was previously believed to have been destroyed. Visitors to the exhibition will also discover the story of the Lorenz machine. Mistakes made by a German radio operator while using a Lorenz machine enabled workers at Bletchley Park to break the Enigma code, bringing the Allies one step closer to winning the war.   Right, Enigma Machine M1070, on loan from GCHQ

Secure telephones that were at the cutting-edge of innovation played a crucial role for Britain during the Cold War. The Pickwick telephone was developed to keep transatlantic communication secure between John F. Kennedy and Harold Macmillan during the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962. By the 1980s secure telephone systems were portable, and visitors will be able to see Margaret Thatcher’s secure briefcase telephone, which was used to communicate the course of action to the British Ministry of Defence during the Falklands War in 1982.  Right, Pickwick secure telephone system used by President John Kennedy and PM Harold MacMillan during Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962

An interactive puzzle zone within the exhibition gives visitors the opportunity to test their own codebreaking skills and explore first-hand the skills required to succeed in the world of GCHQ.

The exhibition is supported by Principal Funder DCMS, Principal Sponsors Raytheon, Avast and DXC Technology, Major Sponsor QinetiQ, Associate Funder The Hintze Family Charitable Foundation, and supported by Keith Thrower, with special thanks to Michael Spencer and NEX Group. The exhibition’s Media Partner is The Telegraph.
 
Top Secret: From ciphers to cyber security runs at the Science Museum until 23 February 2020. Tickets are free and can be booked online or in the museum. 

Editor's NoteTo mark the 80th anniversary of the outbreak of the Second World War, Imperial War Museum has released concept sketches of the new Second World War and Holocaust Galleries which will open at IWM London in 2021. Hopefully, we could go!

How elliptic curve cryptography works in TLS 1.3

 Cache   
image

A couple of reader alerts:

In order to (somewhat) simplify the description process and tighten the volume of the article we are going to write, it is essential to make a significant remark and state the primary constraint right away — everything we are going to tell you today on the practical side of the problematics is viable only in terms of TLS 1.3. Meaning that while your ECDSA certificate would still work in TLS 1.2 if you wish it worked, providing backwards compatibility, the description of the actual handshake process, cipher suits and client-server benchmarks covers TLS 1.3 only. Of course, this does not relate to the mathematical description of algorithms behind modern encryption systems.

This article was written by neither a mathematician nor an engineer — although those helped to find a way around scary math and reviewed this article. Many thanks to Qrator Labs employees.

(Elliptic Curve) Diffie-Hellman (Ephemeral)

The Diffie–Hellman legacy in the 21 century

Of course, this has started with neither Diffie nor Hellman. But to provide a correct timeline, we need to point out main dates and events.

There were several major personas in the development of modern cryptography. Most notably, Alan Turing and Claud Shannon both laid an incredible amount of work over the field of theory of computation and information theory as well as general cryptanalysis, and both Diffie and Hellman, are officially credited for coming up with the idea of public-key (or so-called asymmetric) cryptography (although it is known that in the UK there were made serious advances in cryptography that stayed under secrecy for a very long time), making those two gentlemen pioneers.

Print Security – Playing Defense in a Team Sport

 Cache   

by Mark Schneider, National Sales Manager, Y Soft

In February 2019, Quocirca published their 2019 Print Security Research revealing that 59% of businesses have experienced a print-related data loss in the past year. Quocirca also reported that it could cost, on average $413,000 per annum to deal with such a loss. So, it is unsurprising that 66% of respondents ranked print services as their top security risk, second only to cloud-based services.

Print security can be challenging. Think of it as the attacking zone on an ice hockey rink. The goalie and defensemen are all working together to defend against the opposing team scoring a goal. It requires teamwork between the defensemen (you, the device provider, and the print management provider) and the goalie (your customer).

Print Environment - Potential threats & prevention

When looking at the role each of the team members play, we need to first consider what they are defending against. Here are four key areas of an organization’s print environment that pose a security risk and how “the team” can defend against them:

1. MFD Hard Drive

Device provider - The MFD service provider should have processes in place for securing the MFD hard drive during use, during servicing and in the event of decommissioning which includes destroying any data on the hard drive.

Print management provider - Should not permanently store print, scan, fax or copy data on the MFD’s hard drive.

Customer - Agree on policies with the device provider for the protection of any MFD hard drive and the associated data during use, servicing and when decommissioning the device.

2. Device Access

Device provider - As well as securing physical access to the MFD and its working parts, you should advise your customer on compatible print management providers that support authentication and control the release of jobs from the MFD.

Print management provider - The print management provider should offer a variety of authentication methods including employees using their ID cards, PIN codes, login passwords or a combination of methods. For some customers fingerprint authentication may offer an additional level of security.

Customer – Through their print management software, your customer’s IT administrator may set up rules and policies to further control over who, when and which devices can be accessed. The customer may also have policies about sharing digital documents.

3. Network Access

Device provider - Ensure you adhere to the strictest security standards for all system components and points of vulnerability by continually testing and applying the required software patches to ensure the MFD and the associated data is protected. You should also be benchmarking yourselves against industry leaders in printer security protection.

Print management provider - With data passing between devices, servers, systems, and the MFD, multiple data transfers are taking place over multiple communications pathways, and the preferred print management provider should be securing data in all states (in use, at rest and in transit). They should also be ensuring that up-to-date cryptographic protocols are correctly deployed.

Customer - Providing a firewall and encryption are table stakes.  Working with the device provider and print management provider is key to ensure that security is an ongoing conversation that should happen regularly to ensure that new protocols are discussed and implemented.

4. Secure Printing

Device provider - Enabling users to securely print from any convenient MFD or networked printer within the print infrastructure is made possible with pull-printing. It is essential that the device is compatible with a print management solution that enables pull-printing.

Print management provider – The pull-printing solution should be intuitive to users and provide the customer with options: card reader, username/password, PIN or any combination. And for IT ease, it should work with the corporate director and be easy to administrate.

Customer – Because most internal data leaks are accidental, educating employees on the importance of secure printing and data privacy is important.

The importance of reporting and tracking

On-ice data analytics is playing an increasingly important role in the performance of an ice hockey team. This is also true for an organization’s print environment. Tracking and regular reporting enable your customers to identify new policies to govern and secure their print environment. To ensure security is maintained, it is important that your customer has visibility of usage data. This means ensuring the device is compatible with leading print management solutions that provide valuable, fact-based reporting.

Print Security – a team sport with a year-round season

The changing technical landscape means that protecting data and preventing security breaches is a necessity. It is not a box ticking exercise, simply by taking your position on the rink and covering the ice. It is about working together as a team to predict attacks and defend your goal. It is an ongoing process and only by working as a team can you ensure your print environment remains secure.

Virtual(ly) Private Network: NordVPN’s Breach and the Limitations of VPNs

 Cache   

The popular VPN provider, NordVPN, recently announced a server breach  at a third-party data center. NordVPN reassured users that its key services were not impacted, but some user logins from this breach were found to have been leaked and were used to try to access users’ accounts.

News of the breach has inspired questions around which tool is best for safety and security online. With commercial VPNs now saturating the market and many people being more concerned with their privacy, it’s important for users to know how VPNs work, and what their limitations are. VPNs can be useful in a user’s safety toolset, but there are some fundamental capabilities that are critical to understand: what VPNs do, what VPNs don’t do, and how a VPN service can better protect their users.

What VPNs Are

A virtual private network (or VPN) is a method for connecting your computer securely to the network of an organization on the other side of the Internet. When you connect to a VPN, all of your web browsing data appears to originate from the VPN itself, rather than your own Internet Service Provider (or ISP). Sensitive information could include submissions from contact forms or credit card information.

Using a VPN masks the IP address assigned by your ISP from the sites that you access, adding a layer of privacy. Along with masking your origin IP address, it also encrypts your data while in transit to the site you are accessing.

Diagram of how VPNs impact network traffic

This diagram shows a user's computer on the left, and the server of the intended service (example.com) on the far right. HTTPS initially encrypts the user to the page visited. While the user's information travels from their computer, the VPN is hiding information such as metadata and page level information from the user's router and ISP.

What VPNs Can Do

If you are accessing sites on a public wifi network, such as a cafe, a VPN can help to protect your data from observers connected to that network.

It can also help circumvent Internet censorship on a network that blocks certain sites or services, such as when you are working from a school’s Internet connection or in a country that blocks certain kinds of content.

Before they came into higher commercial demand, VPNs were and still are used by corporations, so that their employees can access corporate-specific sites and services within their intranet.

What VPNs Can’t Do

Since commercial VPNs often have servers in different countries, their logs may be subject to law enforcement requests. In these cases, VPNs cannot fully prevent surveillance or access from law enforcement, nor can they completely anonymize your identity. Even though your browsing data is encrypted, it doesn’t mean that a VPN entirely shields who you are. You could still be subject to different kinds of tracking such as browser fingerprinting.

It’s also important to note that VPNs and any other data-in-transit encryption methods such as usage of HTTPS:// sites do not ensure the integrity of the site you are visiting. VPNs cannot protect you from malicious attacks to a site’s servers or their compromised networks.

What VPN Services Should Do

It can be difficult to choose which VPN service best suits your needs, and there are a plethora available now that make compelling promises about their effectiveness. However, the VPN industry must not make the same missteps the antivirus industry has made over the years. Choosing a VPN still means trusting another party with one’s information and trusting them to not only encrypt information, but be transparent as possible about their service.

  • DON'T: Make unrealistic security guarantees in advertisements to get more subscribers. When these promises don’t pan out, this will create apathetic users who will ultimately avoid and mistrust important services. Making statements like “bank grade encryption” or “military grade encryption” does a disservice to educating the general public on the capabilities and accessibility of strong encryption. Referencing cipher strength, or the algorithm for performing encryption or decryption, doesn’t necessarily mean strong infrastructure or detail to user privacy. Strong ciphers are accessible to if not all, most major VPN services.
  • DON’T: Delay or neglect to disclose breaches. This means full and swift disclosure once an incident has occurred and has been analyzed, regardless if information was accessed or not.
  • DO: Have transparent policies on usage and storage of user logs. This will help foster a more informed user base on how much of their information they are agreeing and trusting you to store.
  • DO: Explicitly map and audit servers to outline what jurisdictions these services fall under. Providing this data allows users to make informed decisions about their level of risk in potential issues of law enforcement across varying jurisdictions.

Commercial VPNs can be useful, especially on mobile devices where traffic can be unencrypted without any obvious indication or notification to the user. On desktop browsers, it can be argued that enforced HTTPS is enough, but many users cannot verify that HTTPS is being used in their mobile device’s application traffic. This is the gap that these services can step into and fill, but this is a responsibility they must take seriously.

Why Office 365 Backup is Critical ? (no replies)

 Cache   
Many Organizations and Enterprises are moving their Business data to the cloud especially to Microsoft Office 365 for storing and sharing the data in safe way.

For each and every Organization the data protection is a very important factor to consider as they keep most critical data. All the SaaS (Software as a Service) platform providers including Office 365 are famous for its features like, Flexibility to access data from any location, Scalability, Cost etc. But, it fails in Data protection as it has no built in data protection facility. And it is user’s responsibility to protect their data in safe way.


There are some factors in Office 365 which makes Backup operation critical.

There is a chance that user mailboxes can be deleted accidentally or intentionally. And this deletion will affect the whole network. The only solution for this problem is Office 365 Backup. With that you can restore the user mailbox which you have deleted, either to Office 365 or On-premises Exchange Backup.

Security threat is one of the major issues which are experienced by most of the Organizations. It can be internal or external security threat. Internal threat can be caused by anyone in the Organization who is intended to spoil the organization data. And External threats such as Viruses and Malware can cause some dangerous issues to the Organization. Damages which are happened by External threats can cause the risk not only inside the organization but in global level also.

It is very difficult to manage and to be aware of Office 365 retention policies. A backup can provide better accessible retention and stored in one place. So that Office 365 restore operation will be easy. And also backup can ensure that, you can access or retrieve your mailbox data during any legal action need to be taken.

No matter, whether you perform migration to Office 365 or you combine On-premises Exchange and Office 365 users, there is no difference in data management and protection irrespective of the source location.

CCE 2019 - 3M, Shell, Halliburton and Unibap weigh in on their AI results to date

CCE 2019 - 3M, Shell, Halliburton and Unibap weigh in on their AI results to date Jon Reed Wed, 11/06/2019 - 10:24
Summary:
It's hardly unique to hear about AI and IoT from the enterprise stage. But it's rare to hear customers speak to results and live lessons. At Constellation Connection Enterprise '19, a real world AI/IoT panel was a highlight - here's my review.

CCE 19 AI panel
CCE 2019 customer AI and IoT panel

Despite my incessant buzzword bashing, I'll concede this much: it's important to grapple with next-gen tech via experts who actually know what they are talking about.

We got an earful on day one of the Constellation Research Connected Enterprise 2019 event. Example: most CXOs are not falling over themselves to launch quantum computing projects in 2019, but they do need to be aware of possible threats to RSA encryption: 

Still, next-gen tech needs to be held to the fire of project results. Blockchain is a case in point. My upcoming podcast with blockchain panel moderator (and critic) Steve Wilson of Constellation will get into that in a big way. That's precisely why a day one CCE '19 highlight was "The Road to Real World AI and IoT Results." Moderated by Constellation's "Data to Decisions" lead Doug Henschen, the panelists shared AI lessons, as they bring tech to bear on logistics problems.

3M on AI - how does a 100+ year manufacturing company stay relevant?

Panelist Jennifer Austin, Manufacturing & Supply Chain Analytics Solutions Implementation Leader at 3M, told attendees why 3M is pursuing several AI-related initiatives. Start with the disruptions in the manufacturing sector:

We're looking at how, as a hundred-year-old plus manufacturing company: how do we stay relevant? How do we keep our products [in line] with consumer changes?

Joking about an earlier panel debate, Austin quipped:

I was also glad to hear that manufacturing is not dead.

As for those AI initiatives, one is a global ERP data standardization project:

As some of the speakers spoke of this morning, we struggle with our data, and we have a lot of self-sufficient organizations across the world. And so we don't have a standard way to represent our data. So we've been on a long journey to do that through our global ERP.

The next AI project? Smart products, such as 3M's smart air filter. The third? Manufacturing and supply chain pursuits, including an Industry 4.0 push:

The third [AI area] that I'm most focused on right now is in our manufacturing and supply organization. One aspect is Industry 4.0, which we're referring to as "digital factory."

We have over two hundred sites around the world, so we're trying to make sure that we have those all fully sensored, and that we're using the data that comes off of those sensors in a meaningful way -  to help us with things like capacity optimization, planning and cost reduction, and quality improvement for our customers.

Another aspect of the intelligent supply chain pursuit? Inventory optimization and other "customer value" projects.

The second portion of that manufacturing effort is connected to supply chain, so it's more transactional. That's where we're doing more of the machine learning activity right now. It's focused on things such as optimizing your inventory, by automatically determining what your saved stock should be. It's about minimizing and leaning out your value stream so you can deliver faster to our customers.

This is not a tiptoe into the AI kiddie pool:

We're starting to introduce some exciting new algorithms that are homegrown from our data scientists using, of course, open source models to scale that across the entire operation. So it's something we started out about 18 months ago. [At first], we didn't really think it was real, but it is very much real  - and driving results for our business.

Unibap AB - pursuing Industry 5.0 on earth, and in space

Next up? Frederick Bruhn from Unibap AB. Unibap is what you'd call a forward-thinking outfit. In a nutshell, they commercialize so-called "intelligent automation" - both on earth and in space. They've adopted the phrase Industry 5.0 to emphasize the shift from connected manufacturing (Industry 4.) to intelligent automation.

AI-in-space sounds like a science fiction popcorn movie special. But as Bruhn told us, it's a reality today, and not as different from "on earth" as we might assume:

For us, automation is both in the factories of tomorrow, and in space. Because if you have a mining operation on the ground, or if you have a mining operation on the moon for instance, for us it's the same. So we actually build the server hardware for space, and on the ground, and we do have software to go with that.

One of the cases for Unibap: replacing humans in real-time production lines for painting and coating, assembly, welding, and drilling. No, there aren't any mining operations on the moon yet, but Bruhn says that will happen in about fifteen years. In the meantime, Unibap is supplying computers to customers like NASA, "for intelligent data processing in space."

Royal Dutch Shell on AI - serving customers better is the goal

Deval Pandya of Royal Dutch Shell told us that Shell already has predictive maintenance models in operation, "giving us insights which you can act on to make business decisions and operational decisions, that is generating immense value for us."

The renewable energy space is another AI playing field for Royal Dutch Shell, including solar batteries, and a project to optimize when to charge or discharge batteries. Many of these "AI" and/or IoT projects, despite their focus on automation and "smart" machines, ultimately come back to serving customers better. Pandya:

We've been driving this culture of customer-centricity, and Shell is one of the largest in energy retail. There is a lot of information, and we're just starting to extract value out of it.

Getting AI projects right - talent and culture over tech

On diginomica, we've criticized digital transformation efforts that lack buy-in and total organizational commitment. Yet there is a need for small wins. In that context, how do you get AI projects right? Austin told Henschen: no matter how sexy the tech is portrayed, it's just a tool. 

I think that we have less of an AI strategy, than a commitment to delivering for our customers and our shareholders. So it's all about growth and innovation. AI/machine learning has become a tool that we're now more comfortable with. It's becoming a primary driver for helping us deliver on what our agenda is.

Pandya hit a similar note. Royal Dutch Shell has combined their digital technologies into a digital center of excellence:

A big portion is AI or machine learning, but a lot of it goes hand-in-hand. So in IoT, we are using a lot of this IoT data, and then applying AI to it.

I don't care how good your tech is, or how good your implementation partner is, you're still going to face adversity, your digital moment of truth. Henschen asked the panel: what is your biggest sticking point: talent, culture or technology platforms?

Halliburton's Dr. Satyam Priyadarshy says it's the talent. But for Halliburton, it's more of a training problem than a talent problem:

I call it talent transformation. Because we can't go and hire data scientists, right? A lot of us face the same challenge... We compete with Silicon Valley talent as well. The burning talent question for Halliburton is: can they transform the talent they have? The oil and gas industry has one of the most talented workforces scientifically, from geophysicists to geologists, right? So the question is: can they be turned and trained into data scientists? That has been very highly successful; we have been globally training people.

Two companies on the panel, Halliburton and Shell, use hackathons as a means to spark new hires, or upskill. As Priyadarshy shared, their hackathons are a crash course for developers on industry issues:

Our hackathons, or what we call boot camp workshops, are very contextualized and customized. Everybody can go and take a class on Coursera on AI, right? But how do you apply to oil and gas industry problems - that remains a challenge.

So Halliburton designs these boot camps to get geologists and drillers immersed in AI and IoT:

We have a big workforce of drillers; they are actually on the field. We are sitting in the office. So we have to understand their mindset. 

For Pandya, culture comes first, then talent, then tech: "culture sets the stage for everything else." But Pandya makes a critical point: if your workers don't feel free to fail, then your culture isn't ready for digital change.

This new technology is changing fundamentally the way we do business, the way we make decisions. And so it is a different mindset... The culture of failing fast and learning from failures is something which we have championed across Shell. It's okay to fail. And that's a huge, huge change in mindset, because when you are putting billions of dollars of investments [at stake], failure is usually not an option.

My take

Most of the panelists are investing in some type of AI/IoT COE (Center of Excellence). Give me a COE over a POC (Proof of Concept) anyway. A COE reflects a grittier commitment - and a recognition of the skills transitions needed. True, not all companies are able, or willing, to build data science teams, but it's instructive to see how approaches like COEs are holding up across projects.

A couple of panelists emphasized choosing the right implementation partner/advisory - that wisdom remains a constant. This panel was a welcome reminder that enterprise tech is at different maturity levels. It's our collective job to push beyond the marketing bombast and determine where we stand. Blockchain and quantum computing remain futuristic in an enterprise context, albeit with very different issues to conquer, whereas IoT, and now AI, have some live use cases to consider. Granted, none of the panelists offered up hard ROI numbers, but that's also a question that wasn't explored, and probably should have been.

Any discussion that comes back to data-powered business models must also return to issues of security, privacy, and governance. That wasn't a focus of this panel, but it was addressed in other Connected Enterprise sessions. My upcoming podcast with Steve Wilson on the persistent problem of identity will dig further.

An Indistinguishably Secure Function Encryption Scheme

 Cache   
In this work, we first design a function encryption scheme by using key encapsulation. We combine public key encryption with symmetric encryption to implement the idea of key encapsulation. In the key encapsulation, we use a key to turn a message (plaintext) into a ciphertext by symmetric encryption, and then we use public key encryption to turn this key into another ciphertext. In the design of function encryption scheme, we use the public key encryption system, symmetric encryption system, noninteractive proof system, indistinguishable obfuscator, and commitment scheme. Finally, we prove the indistinguishable security of our function encryption scheme.

Comment on Siri Stores Encrypted E-mails in Plain Text by Michael Tsai

@Sören If it were a known issue, you’d think they would have Siri obey the preference to not search encrypted e-mails. If I don’t want the content in Spotlight, why would I want it in Siri? Yes, I don’t think macOS can do per-app encryption. That’s a good question. Maybe it is only pulling out certain content like names?

It happens rarely and is not reproducable. RDS HOst is a  server 2012, NLA is active. The package is set to negotioate encryption and the "use encryption" option is activated.

Piracy Crackdown May Be Next Front in Streaming Wars

 Cache   
How will consumers afford Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, Apple TV+, Disney+, HBO Max, Peacock and on and on? To many industry analysts, the answer is simple: They won’t. Consumers will be selective in deciding which digital services are worthy of their money. Hence, the so-called streaming wars. But there’s another way to look at the issue. Thanks to rampant free-riding, one account doesn’t mean one viewer. Passwords will be shared, and platforms will be hacked. Under this framework, the streamers aren’t battling with one another. They’ll be teaming up against the grifters to fight Piracy 2.0. On Oct. 30, just a day after WarnerMedia’s John Stankey previewed HBO Max at a glitzy event, the Alliance for Creativity and Entertainment announced a working group to reduce unauthorized access to content, specifically mentioning “improper password sharing” as a top concern. ACE is basically an antipiracy spinoff of the MPAA. Like the industry lobbying group, it includes big studios (Warner Bros., Disney, Netflix, Sony, Paramount), and smaller ones (AMC, Lionsgate, MGM) along with Amazon. Perhaps most notably, as of October, ACE now includes ISPs Comcast and Charter in yet a further sign of realignment and shifting priorities in the piracy wars. “We are very pleased that ACE and its coalition of members have committed through this initiative to take on unauthorized password sharing and other content security practices,” says Charter CEO Tom Rutledge. For much of this century, the content industry’s antipiracy focus has been on file-sharing. First it was Napster and its progeny, then ISPs willfully blinding themselves to copyright infringement. Shorthanded as Hollywood versus Silicon Valley, the digital disrupters wanted to hook users and pushed for compelling new services — old content business models be damned. Then came mergers like Comcast-NBCUniversal and AT&T-Time Warner, plus organic hybrids like Netflix. Vertical integration of production and distribution may be contributing to a need to reassess threats to the business. Now, streaming hubs are growing while fears of illegal downloads fade. This evolution is sparking a shift in thinking. Take password sharing. Five years ago, HBO’s then-CEO Richard Plepler said it had “no impact on the business” and is, in many ways, a “terrific marketing vehicle for the next generation of viewers.” Three years ago, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings commented, “Password sharing is something you have to learn to live with.” Upon its launch in 2017, ACE brought a wave of lawsuits against services like TickBox and Dragon Media, which sold devices preloaded with customized open-source software that enabled viewing of pirated content. (“Get rid of your Premium Channels,” is how Dragon advertised its product. “Stop paying for Netflix and Hulu.”) Now it appears the industry is set to go even further by addressing free riders. The economics of streaming nearly demand it. Platforms are spending billions of dollars annually on both original content and rights to old shows. To become profitable, media companies will need to grow paid subscribers rapidly. AT&T boldly predicted 50 million subs for HBO Max by 2024. As part of that push, it may prove irresistible to target the more than one-fifth of young adults who, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll, say they borrow passwords from people who do not live with them. For now, insiders caution that there are no plans to make moves against individuals who share passwords with family and friends. Instead, ACE will work on “best practices,” like, say, technological measures limiting the number of devices that can simultaneously stream via a single account. That said, there are sure to be uncomfortable discussions ahead. If sharing a password with a friend is not actionable, what about a college dorm sharing a Disney+ account to watch Star Wars? And as pirates become more sophisticated in evading limitations on what any singular streaming account can provide, what will be the legal response? The industry may press claims in court like violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, which was enacted in 1986 partly in response to some paranoia following the release of the Matthew Broderick thriller WarGames. The statute, which punishes those who knowingly access a computer without authorization or those who exceed authorized access, hasn't directly been tested with respect to illicit access of streaming platforms. In fact, as seen by what judges wrote in United States of America v. David Nosal — a 2016 decision by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals — there's some sensitivity around making federal criminals of the millions of people who engage in password-sharing, even theoretically. Then, there's the Digital Millennium Copyright Act’s anti-circumvention provision. The entertainment industry is more accustomed to this 1998 statute as it once was an important legal weapon against those breaking encryption on DVDs. Still, like the CFAA, it's applicability to streaming platforms remains fairly untested. But some Hollywood legal insiders are clearly expecting its significance to grow. For example, on Oct. 31 in a court case that challenges the DMCA’s anti-hacking rules on First Amendment grounds (Green v. U.S. Department of Justice), industry groups filed a brief stressing how there “would not be a viable business model” for subscription-based movie and TV digital hubs “without legal protection for access controls.” The streamers are aware that even the scent of the criminalization of password-sharing has in the past caused a freak-out among consumers. For that reason, most are being extra careful about what they say publicly on this topic. When asked by The Hollywood Reporter, neither Netflix nor HBO would comment on whether their positions on password sharing have evolved. But it looks like ACE and the beginning of court activity on the Piracy 2.0 front might be doing the talking for them.

Problem Statement: While OpenVPN has served me well over the past few years both for site-to-site and road-warrior style VPN connections, it always bugged me that I had to hack a config file, juggle certificates, and use a custom client that isn’t part of the base OS to bring up the links. My Android phone has a built-in L2TP/IPSec VPN client. My Macbook Pro OS X 10.9 laptop has both an IPSec and L2TP VPN client GUI wrapped around racoon. I run OpenBSD as my firewall/router gateway at home. There must be a solution here.

Goal: To allow all remote clients (both site-to-site and road-warrior) to connect and route all their traffic securely over the Internet through my OpenBSD machine at home.

Some of the hurdles I dealt with, and corners I knew I was cutting, to get the below solution working:

  • The devices I carry with me most of the time (Nexus 5 Android phone, OS X laptop) only support IKEv1, and not IKEv2. Therefore I could not use iked on OpenBSD, I had to use isakmpd.
  • I know that using client certificates is the more secure way to go when authenticating IPSec traffic, but I used a pre-shared key in this example for expediency and simplicity. I plan to migrate to certificates once I get my head wrapped around easily managing them.

On to the configuration. First, the PPP server on the OpenBSD machine. A simple configuration using npppd, handing out IPs on 10.40.0.0/24, using statically configured usernames and passwords.

npppd.conf(5) configuration:

set user-max-session 2 authentication LOCAL type local { users-file “/etc/npppd/npppd-users” } tunnel L2TP protocol l2tp { listen on $external_ipv4_ip l2tp-hostname $external_dns_A_record idle-timeout 3600 # 1 hour } ipcp IPCP { pool-address “10.40.0.0/24” dns-servers 10.40.0.1 } interface tun1 address $vpn_endpoint_IP ipcp IPCP bind tunnel from L2TP authenticated by LOCAL to tun1

Next was isakmpd, the daemon responsible for handling security associations (SA) and handling encrypted and authenticated network traffic.

isakmpd.conf(5) configuration:

ike passive esp transport proto udp from $(external_IPv4_IP) to any port 1701 main auth hmac-sha1 enc aes group modp1024 quick auth hmac-sha2-256 enc aes group modp1024 psk dce930cbf010a35f336e640de0b7ff8e94b6b2a512d0ec41268e8e20a154fooo

For my PSK (pre-shared key), I used OpenSSL to generate this random string. Don’t worry, the following is not my PSK, and you should not copy this verbatim.

$ openssl rand -hex 32 dce930cbf010a35f336e640de0b7ff8e94b6b2a512d0ec41268e8e20a1546044

The below PF rules allow both authenticated and encrypted communication. I tried to be a specific as I could with all rules, having ‘from any to any’, or the like, was avoided at all costs. The last line is not specifically IPSec related, but I will explain it after.

$ext_if \= “YOUR_EXTERNAL_INTERFACE_TO_THE_INTERNET” ipsec_if \= “enc0” ipsec_tun \= “tun1” table { 10.40.0.0/24 } pass in proto { esp } from any to ($ext_if) pass in on $ext_if proto udp from any to any port {500, 1701, 4500} keep state pass in on $ipsec_if from any to ($ext_if) keep state (if-bound) pass in on $ipsec_tun from to any keep state (if-bound) pass out on $ext_if inet from to any nat-to ($ext_if)

Ports:

  • 500: isakmpd key management
  • 1701: L2TP (used by npppd)
  • 4500: IPSec Nat-Traversal (used by isakmpd)

The last rule allows for remote road-warrior VPN clients to use NAT and route their traffic out my OpenBSD machine. The reason ‘$ipsec_tun:network” is not a viable macro to use in the NAT rule is that the interface created by nppd is not configured with a subnet attached to it. Try as I might, even with configuring /etc/hostname.tun1, when npppd comes up, the interface is configured as pasted below. The only solution I found here was specifying the network itself as either a table or a variable macro.

$ ifconfig tun1 tun1: flags\=20043 mtu 1500 priority: 0 groups: tun status: active inet 10.40.0.1 netmask 0xffffffff

Relevant rc.conf.local snippets

# IPSec Rules ipsec\=yes ipsec_rules\=/etc/ipsec.conf isakmpd_flags\=“-K” npppd_flags\=“-f /etc/npppd/npppd.conf” npppd_flags\=“”

At this point, start npppd and isakmpd via their rc.d scripts. It is absolutely critical, given the ‘-K’ flag for isakmpd, you load the IPSec rules manually each time you restart isakmpd via ipsecctl. This bit me many times when testing connections, as isakmpd complains there are encryption mismatches between what the client sent, and what the server expected.

# ipsecctl -f /etc/ipsec.conf

The above ipsecctl command is the magic incantation you must run manually (the above flags in rc.conf.local ensure it is run upon boot) every time you restart isakmpd.

At this point, I configured my client to use the above username, password, and pre-shared key to connect. I now had a working road-warrior style L2TP/IPSec VPN connection that I could use to access both my internal infrastructure and route traffic out through my Internet connection at home as if I was a client sitting on the internal network.

And now, some log snippets to show what it looks like when an active PPP/L2TP IPSec connection is made:

SÉTA: Supersingular Encryption from Torsion Attacks, by Cyprien Delpech de Saint Guilhem and Péter Kutas and Christophe Petit and Javier Silva

 Cache   
We present SÉTA, a new family of public-key encryption schemes with post-quantum security based on isogenies of supersingular elliptic curves. We first define a family of trapdoor one-way functions for which the computation of the inverse is based on an attack by Petit (ASIACRYPT 2017) on the problem of computing an isogeny between two supersingular elliptic curves, given the images of torsion points by this isogeny. We use this method as a decryption mechanism to build first a OW-CPA scheme, then we make use of generic transformations to obtain IND-CCA security in the quantum random oracle model, both for a PKE scheme and a KEM. Compared to alternative schemes based on SIDH, our protocols have the advantage of relying on arguably harder problems.
          

Threshold Schemes from Isogeny Assumptions, by Luca De Feo and Michael Meyer

 Cache   
We initiate the study of threshold schemes based on the Hard Homogeneous Spaces (HHS) framework of Couveignes. Quantum-resistant HHS based on supersingular isogeny graphs have recently become usable thanks to the record class group precomputation performed for the signature scheme CSI-FiSh. Using the HHS equivalent of the technique of Shamir's secret sharing in the exponents, we adapt isogeny based schemes to the threshold setting. In particular we present threshold versions of the CSIDH public key encryption, and the CSI-FiSh signature schemes. The main highlight is a threshold version of CSI-FiSh which runs almost as fast as the original scheme, for message sizes as low as 1880 B, public key sizes as low as 128 B, and thresholds up to 56; other speed-size-threshold compromises are possible.
          

Full-Round Differential Attack on DoT Block Cipher, by Manoj Kumar

 Cache   
The lightweight encryption design DoT was published by Patil et al in 2019. It is based on SPN (substitution permutation network) structure. Its block and key size are 64-bit and 128-bit respectively. In this paper, we analyse the security of DoT against differential attack and present a series of differential distinguishers for full-round DOT. Our analysis proves that DoT we can be distinguished from a random permutation with probability equal to 2^62. Diffusion layer of DoT is a combination of byte shuffling, 8-P permutation, 32-bit word shuffling and circular shift operations. We analyse the security of DoT with and without 8-P permutation in its diffusion layer. Our results indicate that DoT provides better resistance to differential attack without using the 8-P permutation.
