We'd suspected this day would come for quite some time, but it's time to make it official: The Network Security Podcast will no longer be a regular, weekly podcast, Rich Mogull and Zach Lanier will not be a consistant part of the podcast. The podcast will continue in some form, but it'll be Martin doing any of the publishing.  Which isn't really all that big of a change anyway.

Basically, all three of us have become incredibly busy in the last year.  Zach has a wedding to plan, a new job and has moved again.  Rich has more business and work than any time in living memory and has had to cut out anything not related to work or family.  And Martin moved to Europe and is on the road close to 50% of the time, further complicating everything.

There will still be microcasts and occasional interviews published through the podcast site, but for the most part we're shutting down production.  It's a sad day as we've been doing this podcast in one form or another for nearly almost 9 years.  We'll miss talking to each other and our audience, but the needs of life have intervened and require our attention elsewhere.  You can catch all three of us at various conferences, either presenting or attending and know that we've always loved hearing feedback from you.

Keep an eye and ear open as there are already plans in process for what comes next.  You didn't think Martin could stop talking, did you?

It's been a while since we could last record a podcast, but at least we were able to get Rich and Martin together this week.  Zach was supposed to join us as well, but got called away to fight a fire at the last minute.  Such is life sometimes.  But we got this episode recorded, so let's celebrate the small victories.  We don't know when we'll have the time for another one as most of the hosts are galavanting around the world and having fun.

This afternoon I had a chance to talk to two of the main organizers of one of the biggest security events of the year, BSides London.  Paul Batson and Thomas Fisher have been working tirelessly (or maybe tiredly) for months to bring together all of the disparate elements required to make a conference come together.  And it's no mean feat when the people you're working with are all volunteers and the money comes from sponsors, both of whom believe in your cause.  This year will be my first chance to go to BSides London (this is the fourth) and I'm really looking forward to it.

It only took 4+ weeks, but Martin and Zach are back on the air. Rich is back to his "(Inter)National Man of Mystery" routine, so he missed out on the somewhat lively discussion about drones, "secure" browsers, PCI, and, of course, the NSA.

Most of the time my competitors are afraid to talk to me on the podcast.  I'm a nice guy to the people I interview, so I don't know why they'd be afraid.  And this year at RSAC, Jag Bains the CTO at DoSArrest took a chance and talked to me.  While I did bring up that we're competitors, I let Jag explain to me how his company works and what they protect their customers from DDoS.  I still think we do it better, but it's good to hear what other people in the same field are doing.

I had a chance to sit down with BeyondTrust CTO, Marc Maiffret.  I've had conversations with Marc before, but I haven't seen him since he has been at BeyondTrust, so I took this time to find out what they do and how it would be used by the average enterprise.  As with all my interviews at RSAC, I asked Marc how he felt the spying revelations of the last year have affected the security landscape, his company and him personally.

I caught up with John Dickson and Dan Cornell from the Denim Group to talk about creating secure coding environments within companies, the importance of having trainers who are themselves coders and, of course, a little bit about spying.  Which turned into a lot of bit about spying.  I should have asked them where the name 'Denim Group' comes from.

I spent a few minutes with the CEO of Utimaco, Malte Pollman at RSAC this year.  Malte explains why Hardware Security Modules are important to the web of trust of the Internet, why lawful interception is a not in conflict with that web of trust.  As with all my interviews at RSAC, I asked Malte how the last year's worth of spying revelations have affected his company and him personally.  Also, I have a problem pronouncing the company name, which for the record is you-tee-make-oh.

I caught Trey Ford right after his talk at the BSides Conference in San Francisco last month to talk about the efforts he's making on behalf of Rapid7 and the security community.  It may be a sign that we're a maturing industry when we've got folks like Trey traveling to Washington, DC in order to talk to lawmakers about how what they're doing affects our lives.  And, as with all my interviews this year, I ask Trey how revelations about our government has affected his personal as well as professional life.  Check out his site at Password123.org.

About half way through the week Martin and Rich got together and recorded a short discussion about this year's RSA Conference.  There had been sightings of Zach, but at no point did all three members of the podcast manage to be in the same place at the same time with microphones.  Our intrepid hosts talk about intelligence, keynotes and how the vibe of the show is a bit more upbeat than it's been in the past.  And we really mean that, it's not a cynical, sarcastic way of saying something else.
