Just published on my long form blog :
A website that offers English translations of (mostly) editorials that foreign newspapers are publishing about the US.
It’s a really neat site that I just rediscovered.
A cautionary tale. Long but well worth reading.
About time, NIST is updating its password guidelines. Mandatory for governmental agencies and followed by most large businesses. Highlights: no more periodic of changing of passwords, end of artificial complexity (upper case, lower case, number, symbol, etc…), and filter out “bad” passwords (12345678, P@ssword, w0rk5uck5, etc…)
As stated, “About Time!” If we have to have 100 passwords, the least we can do is move toward the rational use of them.
