On this week's show we're chatting with former NSA general counsel and Steptoe & Johnson law partner Stewart A Baker about the cryptowars! Stewart was NSA general counsel during the Clipper Chip period at NSA, and he joins us this week to talk about the second cryptowar, Apple versus the FBI and more.
In this week's sponsor interview we're chatting with Senetas CTO Julian Fay about some work they've been doing with Avaya on encrypting and locking down virtual and software defined networks... The networks of the future are getting more complicated in structure but simpler to run thanks to better automation and centralised control. It's complicated stuff and I admit I was a little bit out of my depth in that interview, but it is very interesting and Julian explains it well.
Adam Boileau, as always, stops by to discuss the week's news headlines.
