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.

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.

I had some great plans for tonight's podcast which didn't quite come to fruition. Michael Farnum from An Information Security Place was going to be be my cohost on the show tonight, but Skype had other opinions. I thought we'd take advantage of the fact that SkypeOut is now free to any phone number here in the US or Canada. Sounds like a great tool, if only it worked right. Michael got so much echo from the process that it just couldn't work. Which is the long way of saying why tonight's podcast is a little short and disorganized.

Boy, tonight's podcast ended up going a bit longer than usual. I got started on a couple of the subjects and just couldn't keep it to thirty minutes. I'm still a little hyped from meeting Leo Laporte earlier today. If I had a list of all the podcast/blog personalities I listen to and read that I want to meet, Leo would be in the number one spot. I didn't go all fan boy on him, but I did feel the urge. Maybe I should create such a list and start checking off names as I meet them. By the way, I shifted my position in relationship to the microphone, and you might notice several changes
Let me know what you think about some of the new artwork I've gotten for the site. The blue and grey color scheme is what I've settled on and will hopefully be moving to in the near future.

I don't know why I want to think interview podcasts are going to be easier than a standard podcast. It's nice to not have to be the only one speaking once in a while, but the post production tends to take longer. My first conversation is with Mike Rothman of the Security Incite blog and Scott Richards, VP of Product Management and Engineering at Senforce Technologies. We spent a good time talking about the recent thumb drive migration in Afghanistan. I also had a quick phone call with Alan Shimel to congratulate him on StillSecure's partnership with Extreme Networks Thanks to my friend, Robyn over at Sleepy Blogger (and fellow Tabler) for giving me the little break between the two. Next week, it's back to just me. And by the way, the Frappr map is up to 64 pins. Keep 'em coming. Network Security Podcast, Episode 25, May 2nd, 2006 (Can you believe it's already been 25 episodes?)
