I interviewed Gary McGraw, CTO of Cigital Inc and author of Software Security for this week’s podcast. This is part of my continuing effort to do less of the talking in the podcast and get ideas and opinions from other people. We discussed software security and what’s being done about it. I tried to get Gary to spill the beans on the subject of his next book, but he was a little cagey on the subject.
I forgot to mention it in the podcast, but if you have any feedback, you can drop me an email at nsp_AT_mckeay.net or leave me a voicemail at 916-231-9479.

Last, but not least, check out the other projects I’ve been working on lately, the first episode of the Security Roundtable and the fifth episode of the Podcast Roundtable.

I want to start off by thanking my guest host tonight, Dan Kuykendall from the Mighty Seek Podcast. Dan is a fellow member of the Security Roundtable, so hopefully you’ll be hearing more of us together in the future. Dan is an application vulnerability tester by profession, and brings a significantly different point of view to security than I do. I had more sound problems tonight, but at least Dan and I were able to record this, which is a big improvement over last week. Sorry about the sound quality tonight, I promise it will be better next week.
On a seperate note, I had to disable comments on the site temporarily. Starting yesterday I’ve been hammered with comment spam and I had to shut down comments until I come up with a viable solution. It’s not shaping up to be a good week.

Dan had some interesting information about the PCI standards that I hadn’t heard before. I’m glad that there’s people like Dan pushing hard for application security in the PCI standards.
