By Fraser ThomasLast week the US Congress began the process of making President Obama’s State of the Union address, where he focused on ways to secure the nation's businesses and infrastructure in cyberspace, a reality.On Wednesday two House members reintroduced a bill requiring companies to meet a specific set of data security standards when handling customers’ personal information.
By Michael D. HelmMost Americans do not know who Ali al-Marri is and it is my sincere hope that they never find out because of another horrendous attack. Nonetheless, it is extremely alarming that not only has our government released the convicted al-Qaeda operative from U.S. custody to Qatar, but that it has also gone largely unnoticed by the mainstream media.

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?
