Some chatter on information security

Small talk we picked up today:

  • ENISA has released a new analysis of emerging risks in information security.  While some of the scenarios are a bit science-fiction like, the interesting thing about this document is that, unlike many vendor reports that cover the past year or so, it looks at where IT is going in the future and then tries to pin point viable threat agents.
  • Experts from countries belonging to the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (the other SCO) are meeting to discuss information security from March 19th to 23rd in Beijing. We for one are very interested in this evolution, as contacting incident response teams in the affected countries, China, Kazachstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan to respond to incidents often proves difficult.
  • An anonymous reader wrote in that the PF_RING kernel patch, used for fast packet capturing on Linux, now supports blooms filters. Luca Deri, the PF_RING author, describes some of the performance advantages here.
