Boycotting #RSAC : Jaws all on the floor over NSA backdoor
 ~ Security wonks put one of those fingers on each hand up.
 May I have your attention, please? Next month's huge RSA security conference is in the spotlight over a growing number of boycotts by high-profile speakers. The conflab, run by EMC's (NYSE:EMC) RSA division is the lightening-rod for disquiet over alleged NSA backdoors inserted into RSA crypto software.

As you may recall, the smell of it is that RSA agreed to the NSA's request to use a default random-number generator that made it easy to crack customers' encrypted data.

In today's #ITBW  for +Computerworld, bloggers repeatedly ask, "He didn't just say what I think he did, did he?"

I repeat, your real, humble blogwatcher curated these bloggy bits for your entertainment. [We're gonna have a problem here -Ed.]
