Certificate authorities (CAs) have given themselves a black eye lately, making it hard for users to trust them. Google stopped trusting Symantec after discovering the CA had mis-issued thousands of certificates over several years, and researchers found that phishing sites were using PayPal-labeled certificates issued by Linux Foundation’s Let’s Encrypt CA. Even with these missteps, the CAs play a critical role in establishing trust on the internet.CAs issue different types of certificates, and each type addresses a different internet security use case. Here’s what you need to understand about certificates and online trust, so you know what is happening behind HTTPS—especially now that free CAs have made it so easy to get certificates.How certificate authorities lost your trustLet’s Encrypt, a free CA operated by the Linux Foundation’s Internet Security Research Group, is taking a pounding for issuing 15,270 certificates containing the word … [Read more...] about Trust issues: Know the limits of SSL certificates
The National Security Agency is now suggesting government departments and businesses buy smartphones secured using virtualization, a technology it currently requires only on tablets and laptopsThe change comes about with the arrival of the first virtualization-based smartphone security system on the U.S. Commercial Solutions for Classified list.CSFC is a program developed by the NSA to help U.S. government agencies and the businesses that serve them to quickly build layered secure systems from approved components.An HTC A9 smartphone security-hardened by Cog Systems using its D4 virtualization platform is now on that list, alongside devices without virtualization from Samsung Electronics, LG Electronics, and BlackBerry.In the modified A9, communications functions are secured by running them in separate virtual machines on the D4 virtualization platform.It's the first smartphone on the CSFC list to use virtualization, which the NSA has only required on more powerful devices … [Read more...] about NSA suggests using virtualization to secure smartphones
Semiconductor Engineering sat down to discuss whether the Internet of Things will be secure enough, or whether it will create new security issues, with Sami Nassar, general manager of NXP Semiconductor; Oleg Logvinov, director for special assignments at STMicroelectronics; and Lawrence Loh, application engineering group director at Cadence. What follow are excerpt of that conversation, which was held in front of a live audience at the IEEE Standards Association IoT Workshop. SE: Do we understand what’s really needed to make the IoT secure enough, or are we facing potential nightmares we can’t even fathom yet?Nassar: We are still at the very early stage of this evolution, but we do see multiple trends converging. One of them is that we’re bringing new applications into the connected universe. With that, we’re facing threats that have existed on the Internet for the past 20 years, but which were never taken into consideration in regard to the reliability of an … [Read more...] about Securing The IoT

When stumbling around the Web in search of a new toaster or a great deal on a new pair of sneakers, it's not unusual for consumers to come across ominous policy dialogs warning of mismatched or expired SSL certificates. In fact, recent surveys have shown nearly 20 percent, or even more, of popular Web sites may have certificate problems that would lead to errors.Many users ignore the often-confusing warnings entirely, research shows, trusting that a Web site's professional look or other factors mean it's the real deal. Others run scared, costing companies opportunities for exposure or sales.So what do SSL certificates, and the "verified" icons common to many e-commerce sites, really mean? Can they be trusted? Is the risk from sites that don't have certificates really as great as some vendors might have users and their corporate clients believe?SSL, or secure sockets layer, allows for the secure transmission of information over the Internet. It encrypts information between client and … [Read more...] about SSL Certificates: Safety, Nuisance or Both?
A report issued Monday purports to detail the 25 most dangerous programming errors committed by software writers that result in security bugs and enable cyber espionage and cybercrime. The list was compiled by more than 30 experts from cyber security organizations in the U.S. and other countries.Experts from the Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT), the non-profit technology resource Mitre, the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security's National Cyber Security Division, Symantec, Microsoft and the Japanese IPA, among others, named the errors, according to Mason Brown, director of the SANS Institute, which helped coordinate the project.Just two of the errors alone led to more than 1.5 million Web site security breaches in 2008. Those breaches in turn compromised the computers of people visiting those sites, turning the computers into so-called zombie machines, the report states."[The mistakes] are huge. They are the underlying reason for almost all the patches … [Read more...] about Security Wonks List Coders’ Top 25 Worst Flubs
