There's No DRM in JPEG—Let's Keep It That Way

EFF attended the group's meeting in Brussels today to tell JPEG committee members why that would be a bad idea. Our presentation explains why cryptographers don't believe that DRM works, points out how DRM can infringe on the user's legal rights over a copyright work (such as fair use and quotation), and warns how it places security researchers at legal risk as well as making standardization more difficult. It doesn't even help to preserve the value of copyright works, since DRM-protected works and devices are less valued by users.

I see more and more projects doing the "curl | sudo bash" method of installing something.  Not good on huge number of levels.  This is a good rant of people doing this for containers.

Yes, I know docker doesn't support signed images yet, hopefully that will happen someday...

This was BIOS obliteration morning at CanSecWest. The border guard BIOS attack requires 50 seconds of physical access to the laptop (as pictured below) - one screw, one button press, wait for green light. Not Nation-State difficult stuff to develop as as all the naysayers claim: development time 4 weeks for two guys. Rafal and Corey then showed us vulnerabilities to do this remotely via software only (#venamis #speedracer) And then the Intel folks showed us another new class of bios vulns using pointers. The BIOS vulnerability beatings will continue until security and morale improves.

Le collège de direction du CNRS a décidé de décerner une médaille de bronze à Nicolas Mansard.
Toutes nos félicitations à Nicolas pour cette remarquable distinction. C'est aussi l'expression d'une excellente marque de reconnaissance pour le thème Robotique et notre Laboratoire.
