Managing Partner, David M. Zendzian, will be giving a short presentation on SSL/TLS protocol, security and configuration issues on Brighttalk tomorrow at 12 EST.
SSL is a well designed protocol to ensure communications between two points are secured and that 3rd parties are not able to view the protected communications. As such many applications have come to rely on SSL to protect many protocols and services. However due to incorrect deployments, misconfiguration, blind trust or simple human error many attackers are able to insert themselves into this trusted SSL communication capturing data, authentication information and established sessions.
This presentation will overview the most common misconfiguration and assumptions used on internal and external deployments of SSL and discuss how I have designed and deployed solutions to mitigate this risk.

Today Visa and MasterCard have reported a massive breach in their cardholder accounts. Not only has the breach leaked information pertaining to existing accounts, but it has leaked information that may allow the manufacture of new, fraudulent credit accounts.
We all know to be vigilant when it comes to our credit information, and so hopefully that means most of us will notice fraudulent charges and deal with them accordingly. However, with a breach on such a large scale it is better to be caller number 1 rather than caller 9 million. Visa and MasterCard have expressed to anyone who feels that they have been a victim of the breach to call the institution that has issued the card not Visa and MasterCard directly.
For larger credit issuers this should not be a problem to deal with a large number of calls. We should worry about the smaller institutions that will not be able to handle the amount of panic that is sure to start sweeping the cardholder nation.
Remain calm, and carry on comes to mind in this situation. Be vigilant. Monitor your credit and we should all be able to get though this mess unscathed.
