  • Mobile SSL failures: More common than they should be

    Securing your mobile application traffic is apparently more difficult than it should be, as researchers Anthony Trummer and Tushar Dalvi discovered when looking into SSL/TLS usage on the Android operating system and applications, as well as on iOS and Windows 8 mobile.

    In this podcast recorded at the Hack in the Box conference in Amsterdam, Trummer, who's a Staff Information Security Engineer at LinkedIn, points out the most common mistakes organizations make when implementing SSL/TLS, and gives instructions on how to avoid them.

  • Data-centric security with RightsWATCH

    The fact that sensitive data seems to increasingly follow a pattern of being leaked, lost or stolen, has forced security professionals to rethink how their organizations can keep their most valuable assets safe.

    In this podcast recorded at Infosecurity Europe 2015, Rui Melo Biscaia, Product Management Director at Watchful Software, talks about RightsWATCH, a state-of-the-art data-centric information security solution that ensures sensitive information can only be used by those that have express authority to do so. Even if sensitive data is leaked, it is rendered useless to unauthorized parties that may acquire it.

  • TLS security: What really matters and how to get there

    Deploying TLS securely is getting more complicated, rather than less. One possibility is that, with so much attention on TLS and many potential issues to consider, we're losing sight of what's really important.

    In this podcast recorded at Infosecurity Europe 2015, Ivan Ristic, Director of Engineering at Qualys and lead at SSL Labs, introduces the TLS Maturity Model - conceptual deployment model that describes a journey toward robust TLS security.
