On this episode of the podcast, #119: Electronic Frontier Foundation General Counsel Kurt Opsahl joins us to chat about the Coders’ Rights Project. Moreover: we dispute with Senthil Ramakrishnan, a lead member of AT&T’s IoT Security group about that company’s plans to work with Ericsson to certify the safety of IoT devices.
IoT Technology: Vulnerability Research is No longer a Crime!
The Electronic Frontier Foundation earned its stripes within the Nineties at the leading edge of groups opposing the US authorities’s efforts to ban the export of sturdy encryption technology – the so called Crypto Wars -and to rein within the industry-suited excesses of the DMCA to offer protection to the writing and sharing laptop code as an act of free expression devoted below the US Structure’s First Modification.
In the closing decade, EFF has modified into its attention to preserving the staunch of self sustaining security researchers to plumb the workings of software program and hardware and dispute what they’ve learned without apprehension of correct repercussions. The so-called “coder’s rights” project. Now the group is taking a look to compose bigger its work for the duration of the Americas, drawing on rights identified by the American Convention on Human Rights, and examples from North and South American jurisprudence.
Read the EFF dispute “Conserving Security Researchers’ Rights within the Americas.”
To search out out extra about what EFF is up to and the put the rights of vulnerability researchers and security pros stand on this hemisphere, we invited Kurt Opsahl , the Deputy Government Director and General Counsel at EFF into the Security Ledger studios to chat about the Coder’s rights project and EFF’s new dispute, “Conserving Security Researchers’ Rights within the Americas. I started by asking Kurt to chat about what the Coder’s Rights Project is all about.
IoT Technology: Certification for IoT Endpoints?
The ordinary factor about Web of Things security requirements is how a lot of them there are – a dozen or extra. It’s miles a explain that defeats the basis of requirements to open with.
In the tip, the authentic issues decrease than who or what’s at the back of it. That’s why Security Ledger took portray when Web broad AT&T announced that it became once partnering with the firm Ericsson to certify the safety of IoT devices. AT&T’s clout because the network staunch via which rather a lot Web of Things communications and recordsdata will gallop back and forth affords it an outsize importance in figuring out what kinds and how a lot IoT endpoint security is wished.
To label AT&T’s making an allowance for stable IoT endpoints and IoT ecosystems, we invited Senthil Ramakrishnan of AT&T’s IoT security group to advance back in and search the advice of with us. On this dialog, Senthil talks just a few few of the frequent security problems it encounters with Web connected devices and how it is working to make a decision on out a examine to push greater security practices at its possibilities.
Securing IoT endpoints is a completely assorted process than securing broken-down networked IT property, he suggested me. Composed, too many corporations continue to utilize network tools and abilities to make a decision on out a examine to stable IoT ecosystems.
Senthil Ramakrishnan is a lead member of AT&T’s IoT Security group. He became once here to chat about AT&T’s program with the firm Ericsson to certify the safety of IoT endpoints.
