Weekly Update 252

Next week first: based on popular demand, at 18:00 on our end Friday 23 (that’s 09:00 in London and terrible o’clock everywhere in the US), Charlotte is going to join me to talk about her transition from Mac to PC. Scott Helme will also be here (as in Zoom “here”) so it’ll be a bit of fun and inevitably go way off topic, but I thought it would be fun to fix it up a bit 🙂 This week is more of the usual with Chrome’s push to HTTPS, another gov on HIBP and more travels in IoT land.

  1. Chrome is continuing the push towards defaulting to HTTPS and flagging HTTP as a security risk (I’m yet to hear a single good argument against their approach, but I’ve heard lots of bad ones!)
  2. The Israeli gov is the 25th national CERT to be onboarded to HIBP (all govs who ask get access to this, regardless of their geopolitics)
  3. The IoT landscape is a complete mess, but it’s fixable (really boils down to supporting open APIs and local control)
