Facebook launches e2e for messenger, gets shat on...
July 15th, 2016 --
On this week's show we're chatting with The Grugq about secure messaging. Facebook has announced it's rolling out an end-to-end encryption feature and the reaction to this wonderful announcement has been somewhat bizarre. We'll be talking to Grugq about why crypto absolutists are hating on companies that are rolling out non-default e2e features. We'll also talk about a couple of interesting case studies in which e2e encryption did absolutely nothing for the people using it.
All the news you can eat!

July 8th, 2016 --
In this week's feature interview we're chatting with Stanford's very own Jennifer Granick about a recent ruling in a Virginia court that appears to give the FBI permission to hack into any computer it wants, sans warrant. Well that's what the headlines are screaming, anyway. But as you'll hear, it's not quite that black and white.

On this week's show we're chatting with Lauri Love. Lauri is an activist facing extradition to the United States where prosecutors hope to charge him with a raft of offences relating to attacks against US government computers... he'll tell us about what's going on with his extradition hearing and why he really, really doesn't want to go to the USA. This week's show is sponsored by Tenable Network Security, big thanks to them. If you're looking for some vulnerability scanning and management software you really should talk to Tenable!
Lots of Appelbaum news in here. Read it.

PLUS Bromium CTO Simon Crosby...
May 27th, 2016 --
In this week's feature slot we're joined by cryptographer Matthew Green of Johns Hopkins University. He'll be arguing against the subversion of encryption technologies this week. Consider it a counterpoint to last week's discussion with Stewart A Baker, former NSA general counsel. This week we get the other side of the argument! This week's sponsor interview is also a cracker. We're chatting with Bromium's co-founder and CTO Simon Crosby. He's been spending a fair bit of time lately trolling rival CTOs on Twitter, which has been somewhat hilarious to watch.
All the news that's fit to tab up!

This week's show is sponsored by BugCrowd, so in this week's sponsor interview we're joined by Casey Ellis, BugCrowd's CEO. We're also joined by Katie Moussouris, former chief policy officer from HackerOne.

On this week's show we're chatting with Chad Rikansrud about mainframe security. Yes, they're old school, but there are many, many reasons why large organisations still use these hunks of big iron. And as you'll hear, because they're so important to the companies they basically run, management can get a bit twitchy when you want to do crazy stuff to them, like, you know, pentest them. We'll find out what mainframe security issues look like with Chad Rikansrud, after this week's news.
So how 'bout that Bitcoin guy AMIRITE?
