The second episode of #DevSqLive, the video podcast, though this was really just live to tape... err, hard drive. Anyhow, we talk about Matthew Greens' "The network is hostile" post (http://blog.cryptographyengineering.c...) and look into how NetCipher (https://github.com/guardianprojet/net...) and PLUTO (the library not the planetoid) might help!

Come watch our first live video event for Developer Square (https://devsq.net) tomorrow at 8am UTC. We'll be talking about some of the new and interesting services that Google has recently released for communicating with nearby devices (iPhone and Android!), as well as for advanced face detection in mobile apps. We'll walk through code and app demos, talk about the unfortunate closed nature of Google Play Services, and compare these tools to some truly free and open solutions available today and on the horizon.

Tomorrow, Aug 20, 12-2pm UTC, 8-10:00 AM Eastern US

Hangout on Air Link: https://plus.google.com/events/c66qfm8hcfpr897iesaa6fa2gu8
YouTube (Live and Archive after): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSgkgBZYBzk
Video downloads will be made available after and through the DevSq Zine (https://devsq.net/zine)

Google says use the same password for all devices, doesn't happen. Pluse doesn't remember passwords with all devices. Plus whenever I make a new password it tells me my password has been hacked. I find it very hard to believe you can do anything more advanced right when you cannot even do what you advertised.
