I kept it short tonight, since I'm off to Southern California in preparation for the Portable Media Expo this weekend. I'm going down a couple days early to visit family, which means I have to leave the house before 5:00 am to avoid the worst of the traffic. I've been varying the length of the podcast a lot lately, short when it's just me, longer when I have a guest, and occasionally much longer when they have something exceptional to say. If the variable length bothers you, speak up and let me know. If the variable length is fine with you, speak up and let me know.

Tonight's interview is with Professor Matt Bishop from UC Davis and Co-Director of their Computer Security Laboratory. Matt and I spent a fair amount of time talking about teaching security, data sanitation and e-voting. I contacted Matt after a listener mentioned his book and asked for the interview.
Show notes: Professor Matt Bishop
Computer Security: Art and Science - I'm going to have to get a copy of this book, since it sounds like it's a good book for teaching security

Late last week I had a chance to talk to Ron Gula, the CEO and CTO of Tenable Security. We talked about the history of Ron and Tenable, several of Tenables products and the impact making Nessus 3.0 close-sourced had on Tenable's business. Ron is a great person to talk to, and I feel I'll probably have him on again just to talk about about ... whatever. I know it'll be interesting, no mattr what it is.
I also took some time to answer a question about auditing for Randy, talk about an upcoming project with Michael Santarcangelo and a review of the newly released PCI requirements, version 1.1 or at least a small portion there of.

Well, to make up for some of the longer podcasts recently, I kept this one short. Okay, the truth is I'm exhausted and didn't have that much to say tonight. I'm trying to line up a some interesting guests for the next couple of weeks, but past experience has taught me not to advertise guests until I have the podcast recorded.
There's a little bit of listener feedback tonight and a couple of things that caught my interest. Browzar stirred up quite a bit of attention on Friday, but over the weekend it's promise of no footprints was revealed to be mostly hype. Jeff Hayes brought up some interesting points about limiting users access to information on a 'Need to know' basis. My brain was too full from SANS training to hold much more.
I had a set of shirts waiting for me when I got home from training as well as a new book. Is it wrong to put you podcast's logo on shirts and get your kids to wear them? Plus I go some golf shirts for myself with the logo in anticipation of the Portable Media Expo at the end of the month. The book was "Enemy at the Water Cooler" by Brian Contos and if you want to give your managment some concrete examples of insider threats, this is the book for you.
