Rand Paul introduces his government waste report, identifying 1.2 million in wasteful spending. If he keeps this up, producing a similar report every day until election day, he will have found a total of 660 million in wasted spending, or about 0.017% of the budget. Enough to cut the deficit by a whopping 0.12%

Sen. Ted Cruz, who recently announced his candidacy for the Republican presidential ticket, thinks, like many conservatives, global warming isn’t happening.

Adaptive Access Control is a way for organizations to differentially control access to resources and services in a way that incorporates a current view of risk. More simply put, it changes the way a given user can access resources when the perceived level of risk for that user changes. This context-sensitive approach to security is both flexible and powerful. It lowers the cost of administration by reducing IT support load and manual security review. It reduces user frustration by lowering the number of hoops a user must jump through to access resources in the average case. In the case where there is identified risk, though, it can provide even greater hurdles for an attacker to access sensitive services and data. It can also leverage existing mitigation techniques.

A really interesting talk
We live in a world run by algorithms, computer programs that make decisions or solve problems for us. In this riveting, funny talk, Kevin Slavin shows how modern algorithms determine stock prices, espionage tactics, even the movies you watch. But, he asks: If we depend on complex algorithms to manage our daily decisions — when do we start to lose control?

Potential security flaw with mobile Outlook
This is the first of a series of posts on threats and risks we've found using Interlock. A few days ago, we were walking a customer through the results of their Interlock Test Drive. While examining one of the Bad users, the customer interrupted the demonstration, saying "That's not right.

Mobile System 7's Joseph Turner on online identity
How do we prove our identity? What makes us unique, and how can we display that uniqueness to others? As animals, our physical bodies, our genetic makeup offers one answer, but it is potentially fallible: what about identical twins? If two identical twins went on a camping trip and only one ...
