Ariz Ct. of Appeals: Under the Ariz state constitution, there is no third-party doctrine: The state's police now must get a search warrant to obtain the IP address used by a pseudonymous account on a messaging service. cases.justia.com/arizona/court-… #N
In the case, an undercover agent invited people in an online forum to join an online messaging group to distribute child porn. A person responding by asking to join the group, using the screenname "tabooin520." “tabooin520” then sent child porn to the group. /2
The govt then issued a subpoena to the messaging app provider for the IP address “tabooin520” was using. The IP address revealed tabooin520's internet provider, and a second subpoena, to the internet provider, revealed the house assigned that IP address.

Fascinating (but I think muddled) decision on encryption workarounds -- here, visiting person in jail to get her phone passcode. The court suppressed all the evidence on the phone on 4A, Miranda, *and* 6A grounds. Here's a thread on US v. Maffei. orinkerrblog2.files.wordpress.com/2019/04/u.s.a.… #N
In the case, the feds have a warrant to search suspect's phones but don't know the passcode. They visit her in jail after her initial hearing, say they are there to get the passcode, and she tells it to them. They use it and find evidence on the phone, Q is suppression of it.
Court first rules that it violated the 4A to get her passcode because the warrant didn't say they could get the passcode from her: The warrant said they could use biometrics, but said nothing about getting her to disclose passcodes. Thus all suppressed as beyond the warrant.

Fascinating CA6 opinion today holding that chalking a tire for parking enforcement -- to see if the car had been there a while in violation of parking rules -- violates the 4th Amendment. Not sure where I come out on it, but fun issue. Here's a thread. opn.ca6.uscourts.gov/opinions.pdf/1… #N
The court first reasons that the chalking is a Jones trespass, which the court, without analysis, says is determined by a common law trespass test as interpreted by the Restatement 2nd of Torts.
The court then says the trespass was done "to obtain information," as required by Jones, b/c the purpose of chalking is to find out what cars haven't been moved.

A SOC that deals in Alerts is doomed. If it deals in 'high fidelity detection analytics' + can show ...
1) what's possible to detect that your tech teams + business MDs care about
2) by implication what gaps exist with existing tech (coverage / config)
... then in with a chance.
In practice what that means is defining 5 things that are highly interesting from a blue/red perspective, and where you would tolerate high false positives because if you see 'an activity' it's worth some precious analyst time to investigate ... for 2 reasons ...
1) To rule out that badness is happening
2) To understand if the analytic can be better tuned to remove the trigger to 'go look at this'

1. This is a Plutonium Pit. It is the heart of most nuclear weapons. It is not a Gamma emitter so you can hold it in your hands. Warm to the touch. On the right is what it looks like inside its shell of high explosives used to trigger it. My metaphor for #N@zi hate. Plutonium pit
2. My estimate when Trump started was 15% of Americans were pure unadulterated bigots. N@zis. KKK, all of a kind. They are the Plutonium Pit of American politics. @realDonaldTrump is the shell of explosives that surrounds it. The trigger is held by his master @KremlinRussia_E.
3. But the single Pit is not enough to destroy America. It needs a surrounding secondary fuel that in H-Bombs is often a kind of water. Not H20. But special isotopes of Hydrogen ready to fuse when the Trigger gets them compressed in a hot rage of hate. That's the #GOP.

Tutorial on how to make a map using QGIS. I'll turn @SenhorRaposa's 2000 Vermont town data into a map showing by how much Gore outran Senator Jeffords (or vice versa) in every town.
Step 1: Download QGIS for your computer, which is available here:
qgis.org/en/site/foruse…
You'll also need some of Census' Tiger/Line County and County Sub shapefiles. The main download page for those is here:
census.gov/cgi-bin/geo/sh…

A direct link to the 2017 VT county sub shapefile is here: ftp://ftp2.census.gov/geo/tiger/TIGER2017/COUSUB/tl_2017_50_cousub.zip
I can't find a 2017 County file by state, so we'll use the 2009 verison here:
ftp://ftp2.census.gov/geo/tiger/TIGER2009/50_VERMONT/tl_2009_50_county.zip
(We could always edit the 17 national county file in QGIS & create a 2017 VT-only county shapefile, but let's keep it simple.)
