In this week's show we speak with TrustedSec CEO Dave Kennedy about his testimony to the US congress about the Obama administration's healthcare.gov website. It cost over $600m and it's riddled with infosec 101 bugs. We find out just how bad it is and what can be done about it.

This week's show is brought to you by Senetas, makers of fine, fine layer 2 encryption software. In this week's sponsor interview we speak with Senetas CTO and co-founder Julian Fay about the sudden popularity of the layer 2 crypto gear they've been selling for something like 15 years. Have the Snowden revelations actually changed things for encryption companies? Julian says yes, big time, in a tangible way.
