I’m spending the week in some great company at Security Field Day with awesome people. They’re really making me think about security in some different ways. Between our conversations going to the presentations and the discussions we’re having after hours, I’m starting to see some things that I didn’t notice before.
Every important benchmark needs to start somewhere.
The first round of MLperf results are in and while they might not deliver on what we would have expected in terms of processor diversity and a complete view into scalability and performance, they do shed light on some developments that go beyond sheer hardware when it comes to deep learning training. …
SDxCentral Weekly Wrap for December 14, 2018: IHS SD-WAN report showed 23 percent revenue surge, VMware paid $550 million for Kubernetes boost from Heptio, and more of what you missed this week.
Watch the embedded demo below or view on the NSX YouTube channel here to see several cool NSX-T networking and security capabilities within VMware Cloud on AWS. The demo shows connectivity from VMware Cloud on AWS SDDC to on-prem via AWS Direct Connect Private VIF. Access to native AWS services from VMware Cloud on AWS SDDC is also shown. Additionally, Edge security policies, distributed firewall/micro-segmentation, and port mirroring are demonstrated. Continue reading
CNCF claimed 8,000 attendees and an additional 2,000 that were on a waitlist to attend this week's event. I think those on the waitlist snuck in.
Australia’s House of Representatives has finally passed the “Telecommunications Assistance and Access Bill 2018,” also known as the Anti-Encryption Bill, on Thursday that would now allow law enforcement to force Google, Facebook, WhatsApp, Signal, and other tech giants to help them access encrypted communications. —Swati Khandelwal @thehackernews.com
Equifax could have prevented a breach of its systems and the resulting leak of sensitive information on nearly 148 million people by focusing more heavily on security, creating a clear hierarchy of responsibilities, and reducing complexity in its infrastructure, a congressional committee concluded in a report released on Dec. 10. —Robert Lemos @darkreading.com
Small and home office routers are becoming major targets for criminals seeking to steal banking and other online account credentials belonging to Internet users. The latest indication of the trend is “Novidade,” a dangerous new exploit kit that multiple attack groups appear to be using to target routers belonging to millions of users in Brazil and, to a lesser extent, other parts of the world. —Jai Vijayan @darkreading.com
The South Korean carrier is to partner with MobiledgeX, building on the deal signed with DT in October 2018.
Amazon Web Services opens in Sweden; Apple expands across the US; and the Hyperledger project expands its membership.
AWS argues that it has a “direct and substantial economic interests at stake.” It says Oracle’s conflict-of-interest accusations are “meritless.”
Wake up! It's HighScalability time:
We've come a long way in 50 years. Or have we?
Alan Kay: I believe ARPA spent $ 175,000 of 1968 money for that one demo. That’s probably like a million bucks today.
Bill English: What we did was lease two video circuits from the phone company. They set up a microwave link: two transmitters on the top of the building at SRI, receiver/ transmitters up on Skyline Boulevard on a truck, and two receivers at the Civic Center. Cables of course going down into the room at both ends. That was our video link. Going back we had two dedicated 1,200-baud lines: high-speed lines at the time. Homemade modems.
Doug Engelbart: It was the very first time the world had ever seen a mouse, seen outline processing, seen hypertext, seen mixed text and graphics, seen real-time videoconferencing.
Alan Kay: We could actually see that ideas could be organized in a different way, that they could be filtered in a different way, that what we were looking at was not something that was trying to automate current modes of thought, but that there should be an amplification relationship between us and this new technology.
We are delighted that our project, Digitally Unconnected Gender Gap (DUGG) has been chosen by the Internet Society as part of the Beyond the Net Funding Programme to work on digital gender issues in Serbia.
The gender digital gap is widely present in Serbia, but the lack of research data and statistics are making this problem invisible, both from the ones dealing with women’s rights, and the ones who are fighting for a just, accessible, and safe Internet for everyone. Our team will connect these two activists’ fields in order to put the light on the issue!
Through these project activities, the team from Serbia Chapter will be dedicated to explore how ICT technologies and Internet can play a role in decreasing the existing gender digital gap and how to take into consideration gender awareness in developing new and evolving technologies.
As women comprise half of the world’s population, the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) should address each of the goals through a gendered lens. The DUGG plans to focus on the Sustainable Development Goals 4 (Quality Education), 5 (Gender Equality), and 9 (Industry Innovation and Infrastructures). However, if applications and services are developed by women, they would be more relevant Continue reading
Complexity is a reality for most modern networks but unnecessary complexity can do more harm than good. In this Network Collective Short Take, Russ and Eyvonne talk through the consequences of enabling new features and share their insight on when you should, and when you shouldn’t, reach for the infamous nerd knobs.
DNS records are hard. Many people, even the technically competent, don’t understand more than the basics.
I'll speak for myself — as someone who always learned just enough about DNS to get it working, then immediately forgot everything until the next time it broke. It was a vicious cycle until I convinced myself to learn it in depth. Meanwhile, non-technical folks wisely avoid meddling in such dangerous affairs all together.
Surely, there must be a better way (this is a blog post after all).
Every day, thousands of Cloudflare users add DNS records to their Internet properties to configure awesome tools like G Suite, Shopify, Wordpress, Ghost, and thousands of others. A new Cloudflare Apps feature allows apps to automatically set up and manage configurable DNS records on more than 12 million registered domains on the Cloudflare network. In short, Cloudflare Apps are here to alleviate the Internet’s collective DNS woes.
Gone are the days of tribulating over whether it’s
CNAME you should set. Gone are the days of puzzling between
AAAA records while wondering what the heck happened to
AAA records? Unload your DNS dysphoria onto highly trained developers experienced at explicating these Continue reading
