Risky Business #246 -- Here lies password authentication. RIP.
On this week's edition of the show we catch up with Mark Dowd of Azimuth security for a bit of a chat about Apple's upcoming iOS 6 operating system and its security features. We also wind up chatting about Apple's approach to OS security in general and the whole signed code appstore thing, it's fun stuff!
This week's show is brought to you by Tenable Network Security -- the most long term and loyal supporter of this podcast.
Tenable founder and CEO Ron Gula joins us later on in the show to chat about the media hype surrounding DNSChanger and Flame, as well as talking about some really, really rudimentary approaches to picking up stuff your AV may have missed. That's this week's sponsor interview.
