Security Professional Resource Guide

(ISC)^2 has put together a Resource Guide for security professionals that’s available for download. It’s 61 pages of links to educational, event and online resources relevent to the security world. Despite being a .pdf, and well lathered up with CISSP ads, there’s still some good information in here.

Debian Security Packages Project

While I should be working on wicrawl, I instead kicked off the start of a Debian Security Packaging project by creating a few of the packages, and creating an apt repository for them. If you want to use the apt source, you can add the following to your /etc/apt/sources.list file, and do an ‘apt-get update’:

deb http://midnightresearch.com/local/debian etch main contrib non-free

Please feel free to give me feedback on the current list of packages, or if you know of something you think is worth spending the time to package.

Playing with Decipher Dog

Uh, wow.

Hi Kids!
Welcome to the NSA/CSS Kids page.

We’re the CryptoKids and we love cryptology.

What’s cryptology? Cryptology is making and breaking codes. It’s so cool. We make codes so we can send secret messages to our friends. And we try to figure out what other people are writing about by breaking their codes. It’s a lot of fun.

On this site, you can learn all about codes and ciphers, play lots of games and activities, and get to know each of us – Crypto Catâ„¢, Decipher Dogâ„¢, Rosetta Stone, Slate, Joules, T.Top, and, of course, our leader CSS Sam.

I like how they actually bothered to trademark all of the characters…
