Happy Hour Hot Links: Week of 7/15

July 19, 2013

Every Friday, after the SC Magazine news team has taken a few spins around the interwebs, we post some security-related links that we found interesting. We hope you do too. If not, there's always next week.

  • The New Yorker chimes in about the “the inevitable downfall of your password;” meanwhile, a group of security firms is teaming up to make password-less authentication a more mainstream alternative.
  • “Snowden Exposure Tour” t-shirts are making their rounds on Twitter, inciting mentions of a mass showcase during Gen. Alexander's keynote at Black Hat.
  • If you're a big fan of graphic novels, you're going to want to check out Hacktivist, a tale of two Silicon Valley whiz kids who lead a double life. It will be released this fall by Archaia Entertainment.
  • It's no secret that universities are massive hubs of information exchange. That's why they're big targets for cyber criminals looking to pillage their data through cyber attacks.
  • While the government's PRISM program is making headlines around the world, staffers claim it's solely intended to combat terrorism. Bruce Schneier makes an argument that since the technology is already in place, it will be extremely tempting to not use it in other cases.
