The devil is in the details, of course, and it's really easy to get this wrong. In Click Here to Kill Everybody, I outline a strawman proposal; I call it the "National Cyber Office" and model it on the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. But regardless of what you t...

Zipcar Disruption

This isn't a security story, but it easily could have been. Last Saturday, Zipcar had a system outage: "an outage experienced by a third party telecommunications vendor disrupted connections between the company's vehicles and its reservation software." That didn't just mean people couldn't get cars they reserved. Sometimes is meant they couldn't get the cars they were already driving to work: Andrew Jones of Roxbury was stuck on hold with customer service for at least a half-hour while he and ...

An Argument that Cybersecurity Is Basically Okay

Andrew Odlyzko's new essay is worth reading -- "Cybersecurity is not very important": Abstract: There is a rising tide of security breaches. There is an even faster rising tide of hysteria over the ostensible reason for these breaches, namely the deficient state of our information infrastructure. Yet the world is doing remarkably well overall, and has not suffered any of the oft-threatened giant digital catastrophes. This continuing general progress of society suggests that cyber security is no...

Amazon cancels Dash buttons

The Amazon Dash button has gone the way of the CueCat and other oddball forms of consumer tech that were quickly made obsolete by newer technology. The $5 wireless Dash button was promised to be an easy way to order consumables from Amazon, but configuring the devices was sometimes confusing. The people who really enjoyed Dash buttons were those who hacked them into Internet-connected remote control devices to accomplish useful tasks other than buying stuff.
