Commentary and Opinions

Teaneck, NJ, July 14 – Multi-factor authentication – a security protection required by US government standards – could have prevented the recent Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Office of Personnel Management (OPM) security breaches that have exposed the personal information of millions of citizens to hackers, spies and cyber-criminals. The Federal government has been encouraging its agencies to use multi-factor authentication since November 2009, when it published the FICAM (Federal Identity and Access Management) Roadmap and Implementation Guidance.
By Austin MartinIf you’ve ever wondered whether or not the Army is just like World of Warcraft, the answer is: kinda. It turns out that all branches of the military are experimenting with some special form of LMS or virtual training – with ever-increasing complexity and capabilities. Here are just a few examples: Battlefield Visualization
By Nir PolakEspionage isn’t what it used to be. While Hollywood still loves to produce thrillers about secret agents in disguise, the news tells a different story about how intelligence leaks out of the U.S. government. Often, its starts with an incoming email that looks innocuous. That’s exactly what happened to the White House recently, when a group of Russian hackers launched a sustained attack armed only with a phishing email and a piece of malware.

Abstract:

Network Access Control and 802.1x - Advantages, Constraints and Capabilities

Written by distinguished security industry analyst Pete Lindstrom of Spire Security

The industry has been blurring the differences between 802.1x and NAC. Some believe that 802.1x is sufficient and similar enough to a full NAC solution to start down the path of implementation. What organizations often find is that the 802.1x story seems fairly simple and easy, but the deployment is much more difficult. This paper examines the fully 802.1x and NAC details such as:

    * What is 802.1x?
    * What important features are missing from 802.1x?
    * What alternatives exist to 802.1x and why?
    * What are the hidden costs associated with rolling out NAC?
    * How can commercial enterprises and government organizations benefit from NAC?
