Network Security Podcast, Episode 121

Published by at 5:48 pm under Podcast

We had a special guest tonight, fellow podcaster T-Rob Wyatt.  T-Rob is a security professional working on WebSphere MQ and recently started his own deep-dive podcast, The Deep Queue.  Of course, we talked about Palin and her email, but we also tried to talk a bit about what that means to the average computer user.  We got everything out of our system on Palin in one episode, so you won’t be hearing about this again.  Until they catch the guy who’s responsible that is.

We tried streaming again tonight, sorry for not giving any advanced notice.   We’ll try to do better next week.

    Martin – just wanted to say thanks for having me on the show last week. I have a few new followers on Twitter and have seen a bump in hits over at Listening to my performance the show, I have to attribute this to a genuine interest in WebSphere MQ security and not my smooth delivery scintillating wit. That thought is most encouraging.

    I just posted Episode #3 of the Deep Queue podcast in which I propose something I call “ethical administration”. We have all heard of ethical hacking and occasionally people attempt it without approval and end up jobless or in jail. My idea of ethical administration is that an administrator can act within the scope of their normal duties to secure the network, even though the specific action may not be funded by their management. We are still talking about taking matters into one’s own hands but doing so within legal boundaries and enterprise process boundaries (such as change control).

    Is a grass-roots security campaign feasible? Is it in fact ethical as I have proposed it? If companies fail to act on their own behalf, can we afford to knowingly leave them exposed? Will the government step in to save these companies if they fail due to a catastrophic breach? Or do they only do that in cases where the failure is due to a long term trend of increasingly relaxed regulation?

    Thanks for coming on. We all get smoother with experience. I’ve been podcasting for nearly 3 years. Rich has even more experience. You’ll be surprised, it’ll get a lot easier right around episode 20, where you’ll have learned how to use the majority of your tech. And how to use your voice.

    I’ll try to listen. I’ve been listening to The Dresden Files read by Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer fame this morning.
