Risky Business #130 -- Are non-ASCII domain names a security risk?

Chris Disspain of auDA dispels some myths...
06 Nov 2009 » Risky Business

This week's show is sponsored by the wonderful people from Tenable Network Security.

This week's feature interview is with Chris Disspain, the CEO of Australia's domain name regulator auDA.

This week we're discussing the move to Cyrillic domain names -- some media commentators have gone a bit berserk on this one, saying that the move will introduce massive risks because people will be able to do phishing campaigns with domains made up partially of Cyrillic characters.

Chris will be along to talk about why he thinks that's wrong.

We're also joined by Tenable Network Security's CEO Ron Gula in this week's sponsor interview. Ron gives us his take on Rapid7's acquisition of Metasploit.

Adam Boileau also pops in for a look at the week's news headlines.
