Risky Business #274 -- Is "active defence" legal?
In this week's feature interview we chat with Jennifer Granick, the Head of Civil Liberties at Stanford University's Centre for Internet and Society. Jennifer has extensive experience with cyberlaw -- she has acted for clients as diverse as Aaron Swartz and HBGary! She's done it all! And she joins the show to talk about a few things -- is active defence ever legal? And what the hell is going on with the Computer Abuse and Fraud Act over there in the USA?
This week's show is brought to you by Senetas, makers of fine, fine crypto hardware. If you need some crypto in your second layer, I'd suggest you get in touch with these guys. Awesome gear and as you'll hear in this week's sponsor interview with Senetas co-founder and CTO Julian Fay, these guys really know their stuff.
Julian joins the show a bit later on to talk about what happens when his customers ask them to roll with custom algos because some of them don't trust those published crypto techniques.
Adam Boileau, as always, joins us for a chat about the week's news headlines. You can find this week's show notes here.
