With the fragmented manner of work culture in the 21st century, organizations have started to wake up to a fact that they cannot withhold information within the confines of their heavily guarded data-centers. Clients, employees and vendors need the information to continue smooth functioning of their businesses.
Information usually falls into anyone of the below categories:
|| Visible to everyone in the world
||Only for employees
||Only for certain people/teams
||Contracts, Invoices, PO, Network Diagrams
||Sensitive information – for very specific people
||personal information of people
||Salaries, Employee HR Information
Hakin9 is out with another contest. They’re giving out three latest issues of Hakin9 absolutely free.
After the last contest, I received my copy of Hakin9 in about 10 days and the issue was awesome. I can’t wait to check out the contents of the upcoming issues.
The current issue addresses advance hacking techniques like ASLR and Stack Canaries. The theme of the issue is “21st Century Hacking Techniques”
Head over to their website at http://www.hakin9.org/en to know more about the contest and the articles in the current issue.
I’ve been a long time fan of the magazine “Hakin9” http://www.hakin9.org/en. For those who do not know what’s Hakin9, head over to their website for more information
In short, it’s an IT security magazine, with a strong focus on technical knowledge. Unlike other technical magazines, the content quality is amazing. It’s always informative and you end up learning quite a few things. Best of all the content is always very recent. For example, in the last issue (3/2009), they published articles on how to analyze malformed PDF and binaries. PDF based exploits are in the rage, now that Adobe has seen a few severe vulnerabilities.
Anyway, the current issue (4/2009) is out with the main article focusing on ERP security.
Other topics discussed are the recent Nokia’s ‘Silence’ malware, Automating malware analysis, creating self-signed certificate using OpenSSL and much more.
