We have really starting beefing up the biometric side of things. Look for something a little down the line though. Biometric is cool but most of the stuff out there is more for convenience and not security and the vendors need to come to agreement with
Krpyto-guys are the coolest. Those guys are the real number-crunchers. r-e-s-p-e-c-t. But they must have a hard time selling their stuff since users are still divided in those two groups: informed(=using crypto on a daily bases) and uninformed(=krypto-what?)
I have a question:
How far away do you see quantum-crypto from Luser-Usability? There has been some "proof-of-concept"-articles, but I don-t remember where I've read them. Is it even allowed to use it? b/c the us-gov/NSA can-t spy thru some hidden api-s when you use quantum-crypto. ?
It is beyond the white-paper stage. There are a number of dev/research groups (non-Microsoft) scattered around the world working on this. Judging from requests for information it is safe to assume some planning to write plug-ins for CNG for Windows
Some good information, but not the kind of detail I was expecting...lots of time spent on the very basics of crypto, which is not what those of us who know about crypto and are looking for some details of how crypto will work in Vista are looking for.
Why doesn't the Tech evangelist guy let the crypto guys answer the questions themselves. I think he is annoying.
I agree with you. He should really get his act together and give the mike, so to speak, to the person(s) he is interviewing instead of always laughing and making jokes.
I stopped downloading any video made by Scobble some time ago and I thought I'd try this one since crypto is something I'm very interested in. Very infuriating when you have interesting guests that can't answer for themselves.
