There is some interesting discussion going on @ Slasdot about biometric identification.

 From comments:
I hope this system includes some method to check whether the rest of the person apart from the face is present. Some poor Malaysian fellow has already lost a finger. I’d hate to have my head stolen just to access my bank account.”

As a computer security engineer my knowledge always has to be up to date. It involves lots and lots of reading. Every day I go through tons of RSS feeds and hundreds of security related news. Not all of them are useful (at least for me) so before reading I have to scan the text and filter off articles that would be waste of my time. Then there are news/articles/publications I am interested in, but it’s important only for some time or is useful, but involves lot of further research form my side; these are quite good, but not worth mentioning here. Finally there are brilliant peaces of writings I have found interesting/particularly useful/fun to read etc. and want to introduce to you.

As I am busy at my day to day job and research I’ll keep my posts as short as possible. Most of the time I will post some links or pointers to someone’s writings with short review form my side.

As I am not native English speaker feel free to point out some spelling errors or word misuse. Yes, and I’ll be more then glad to answer your emails – mr.seclog[here_goes_at]gmail.com.
