first_img7 Types of Video that will Make a Massive Impac… Tags:#hack#Tools How to Write a Welcome Email to New Employees? Zed Shaw yesterday unveiled Vulnarb.com, an experimental project to improve the process of responsible security vulnerability disclosure. Today, security researchers have two choices: contact the developers about a vulnerability and wait for them to fix it, or publish the vulnerability for the world to see. Both of these solutions have flaws. Users may be unaware that the products they use have vulnerabilities if it isn’t publicly disclosed, but public disclosure could make them even more vulnerable to exploitation.Shaw’s plan is to create a public repository of security vulnerabilities. The specifics of the vulnerability will be encrypted and provided only to the company or developers behind a product. The public will know what products have vulnerabilities, but not what the specific vulnerabilities are. Companies or researches can then disclose the vulnerability once it’s been fixed.“The goal is to provide a market incentive for companies to fix security holes, rather than the current situation where they can sit on them legally for years,” Shaw writes.They key to making this work is the encryption. If a researcher posts an inaccurate vulnerability, the developers will be able to decrypt the alleged vulnerability and make it public to clear their names.Here’s how it would work, according to Shaw:At the moment, the project is in its earliest stages. Shaw is looking for people to test the viability of his plan to use a company’s website’s SSL certificate as a public key. Those interested can contact Shaw through Twitter.Giving researchers tools to upload SSL public key encrypted vulnerability descriptions, which only the SSL private key holders can decrypt.Consumers then can go see which companies and products have vulnerabilities, but not actually know what those vulnerabilities are until the company fixes them.Once the company fixes their product, they can upload the decrypted files to prove they fixed it.If they don’t it’s assumed they haven’t fixed it.If the researcher lies then they’ll easily be exposed by just decrypting their lies for everyone to see.Shaw is the creator of the Mongrel and Mongrel2 Web servers and the author of Learn Python the Hard Way and the Programming, Mother F*cker manifestoPhoto credit: Circo de Invierno.

first_imgBy allowing Pakistan to play three ODIs and two T20 matches at home, India seems to have effectively delinked sports and politics in its ties with its difficult neighbour. This is the first time the traditional rivals will be playing a cricket series after almost five years. Pakistan has welcomed the decision, because it has faced huge isolation in participating in sporting events. Former captain Sunil Gavaskar and BJP MP Kirti Azad have openly criticised the decision on account of 26/11, and there is little doubt that they represent an important section of opinion. But the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) decision seems to suggest a desire to move beyond the Mumbai attack.The fact is that sporting relations between India and Pakistan have been going on, in one way or the other. Last year, Mohali hosted the high-voltage ICC World Cup semi-final, and since then Pakistani hockey players have come to India for World Series Hockey. And while players from Pakistan were not allowed into the auction pool for the Indian Premier League, Wasim Akram has continued as the bowling coach of the Kolkata Knight Riders.It is difficult to believe that the BCCI took such a huge decision without getting the government’s nod. Indeed, banning sporting events even while conducting diplomatic dialogue, as New Delhi has been doing with Islamabad, doesn’t make much sense.Hosting a short cricket series is actually a good way to generate some goodwill that could feed into the larger peace process. There is bound to be opposition but once the ice is broken, we can look at more frequent exchanges. Maybe Pakistani players could actually make it to the 2013 IPL.advertisementlast_img read more
