Thread #FreedomToVoteAct
From a #Security and #Technology POV, there are some excellent points in the new version & some very concerning ones.

Preprinted #handmarkedpaperballots are required in the polling place!! This is something many of us fought for
Voting systems that can print on ballots after they are cast are prohibited - but the provision is weak. It can be "through mechanical means or through independently verified protections." I believe that means it is allowed, but you have to check if it's happening. Not great.
The voter's privacy must be maintained. That's great!

Between the 3 Sept and 10 Sept, secure env vars of *all* public @travisci repositories were injected into PR builds. Signing keys, access creds, API tokens.

Anyone could exfiltrate these and gain lateral movement into 1000s of orgs. #security 1/4…
Felix Lange found this on the 7th and we've notified @travisci within the hour. Their only response being "Oops, please rotate the keys", ignoring that *all* their infra was leaking.

Not getting through, we've started reaching out to @github to have Travis blacklisted. 2/4
After 3 days of pressure from multiple projects, @travisci silently patched the issue on the 10th.

No analysis, no security report, no post mortem, not warning any of their users that their secrets might have been stolen. 3/4

"#Data: a new direction" - a public consultation by @DCMS on "reforms to the UK’s #DataProtection regime":…

The consultation ends on 19 Nov 2021, and you can respond by e-mail to or online here:… Image
A quick sample of initial reactions...

We're clearly going to be hearing a lot about #LegitimateInterests, as well as #commercial and #public ones. The real question being, how do this Government's interests actually align with YOURS?

140+ pages on a Friday is a lot to digest, but @lilianedwards' "penumbra of often futile determinedly populist ideas largely not evidence-based" seems entirely consistent with @DCMS's Drunkard's Walk through #data and #ID this past year...

¡OpenSSL 3.0 ha sido publicado!

Tras 3 años de trabajo de desarrollo, 17 versiones alfa, 2 versiones beta, más de 7.500 commits y contribuciones de más de 350 autores diferentes, ¡por fin ha sido publicado OpenSSL 3.0!

Abro hilo...
OpenSSL 3.0 pasa a la licencia Apache 2.0. Las antiguas licencias "duales" de OpenSSL y SSLeay siguen aplicándose a las versiones más antiguas (1.1.1 y anteriores)
Esta versión mayor no es totalmente compatible con la anterior. La mayoría de las aplicaciones que funcionaban con OpenSSL 1.1.1 seguirán funcionando sin cambios y simplemente tendrán que ser recompiladas (es posible que aparezcan avisos sobre el uso de APIs obsoletas).

🕵️‍♂️TLDR; Given the craziness in the cyber space - I mean its bad - I am building tools for personal cyber survival and opsec. A personal challenge with positive externalities

🚩Goal? Make it easy for people to use, but also effective and efficient. When I say 'easy', I mean it!
🔧 Tools? Practical security checklists, password checker (w/94GB list +real breaches), darkweb/cloud of logs monitoring, tips and solutions to reduce personal cyber risk. New ideas are welcome.

🌍 Focus? UK and Italy for starters
If interested in initial access like/DM and I will keep you posted 😉

🤯 Challenges? A few, beyond laws and privacy concerns

⏱️ When? Mid/End October should be feasible for an initial web release.

Name? not sure yet, I'm going with the flow ⛵️

Eric realized they couldn’t scale up the team to the size of AWS, it just wasn’t possible

they had to figure out a way to help the organization build the #security culture itself

This attack is mainly because the keeper of the EthCrossChainData contract can be modified by the EthCrossChainManager contract, and the verifyHeaderAndExecuteTx function of the EthCrossChainManager contract can execute the data passed in by the user through ...
the _executeCrossChainTx function. Therefore, the attacker uses this function to pass in carefully constructed data to modify the keeper of the EthCrossChainData contract. It is not the case that this event occurred due to the leakage of the keeper's private key.

1/ I produce a lot of content. It's difficult for some to keep up with at times. Below, a list of some of my threads & important tweets for $EGLD & $CEL The Crypto Industry & Banking/Federal Reserve & Investing. Education is Freedom & Crypto is Financial Freedom. #cryptocurrency

(1\13) The next time someone says #crypto is the one with #leverage tell them they have ZERO understanding of the existing legacy banking & financial system. Historically banks were required to hold 10-13% in reserves. Federal Reserve moved it to 0% on March 15, 2020 $EGLD $CEL Image
(2\13)… When I used to teach banking I would have my students perform #UBPR which are essentially an analytical tool for assessing banks health & performance. NEVER has the banking system allowed 0% reserve. Let me
(3\13) give you a mathematical example of how #FractionalReserves are essentially implicit leverage. If banks historically had to hold say 10% than the way you would understand how much leverage is by 1*1/R. You deposit $100 *(1/R) R=10% = $1,000, so they can lend out $900 for

On June 2, #Russia has finally unveiled its new National #Security #Strategy - the strategic document that was expected some six months ago. The document is very interesting and has #information security at its heart. #InformationWarfare 1/8
One thing that may immediately surprise some experts, is the total absence of the word "#cyber", so revered in our Western countries. This further confirms the difference in approaches to the issue of #InformationWarfare and cyber. 2/8
In terms of terminology, the document does not use "#InformationWarfare, but "#InformationConfrontation" (информационное противоборство). Of course no nonsense like "#fakenews" can be found in it, although there are references to #propaganda and #PsyOps. 3/8

So what *is* this "Digital Regulation: Driving growth & unlocking innovation" policy paper? Another "strategy"? A white paper for #DPA2022?

If it's about #regulation, then how will @OliverDowden's "unashamedly pro-tech approach" protect people's #rights?…
In his introduction to "#ThePlan", @OliverDowden says he'll "shortly publish a #plan for a pro-growth data regime" 🤔

If he has an ACTUAL plan, or frankly a clue, then why not just #publish the damn thing? Why all the waffle?

Hand-wavy platitudes like these 👇 ain't worth Jack:
Just so we're clear, this "#Plan" is supposed to "start a #conversation" about "#TenTechPriorities" that @DCMS published on a "shorthand stories"(?) page that DOESN'T ONCE MENTION PEOPLE'S #RIGHTS!!…

Does this Government think it can take us for fools?

Some thoughts about #Apple's latest #WWDC21 and #privacy. A thread 👇
The good:

There's no question that Apple has brought some exciting new features for privacy lately. The possibility for users to block some #data collection, one's #email blocking trackers, the chance to use email aliases for interactions with companies...
#Safari hiding internet traffic from your internet service provider... all fantastic, and hugely important.

Apple is showing that #privacy is a competitive advantage. And their #security is much better than that of competitors

But before we get too complacent...

The biggest fallacy of our time is thinking #technology is the panacea to all our problems. Street CCTV debate in #Uganda suffers from same limitation. Human element is still going to be relevant for very long time in analysis/interpretation. #Security should attract best brains.
Technology is only an aid/enabler. It is not the solution in and of itself.

A famous technologist once remarked that;

"Technology is not a substitute for competence."
It has become fashionable lately to hear statements like, "show us the CCTV footage" and law enforcement agencies bow to the political & social pressure- sometimes jeopardizing the investigations.

In the bigger scheme, even the best digital #surveillance must be intelligence-led
