#Huawei gear has #NSA backdoors - too bad tech details are censored
As the United States made a public case about the dangers of buying from Huawei, the Chinese telecommunications giant, classified documents show that the National Security Agency was creating its own back doors — directly into Huawei’s networks.

My dad, Robert Newman (1930-2007), made documentary films about all kinds of social issues. I’m thrilled to announce that the Internet Archive has digitized his catalog and made it freely available under a Creative Commons license. Please share this post and these films, with attribution.

A lot of the subject matter is still front and center today, such as questions about who gets to vote, how we treat immigrants, and how we run elections.

Besides the timely topics and lyrical photography, great music abounds in these films. There’s Joan Baez singing to migrant workers in “Viva La Causa”; John Moyer’s classical piano in “Open Arms”; Mel Pahl’s marching band in “City of Necessity”; a gospel choir letting go at the end of “Right Now!”; and Eddie Cochran’s records getting Scottish teenagers on the dance floor in “Alf Goes to Work.” 

The Internet Archive is a great resource. Its mission is to be a modern-day Alexandria, digitizing and providing universal access to all materials in the public domain.

Thanks to my mom, Rhoda Newman, for finding one of these films in the National Archive and getting this project started; to +Carl Malamud for connecting me with the Internet Archive folks; to +Brewster Kahle, Jesse Bell, Yvonne Wang, and Michelle Krasowski at the Internet Archive for doing the actual work; and to Jim McQuaid of Turnip Films for his guidance and encouragement.

The folks at my local BB&T didn't even know what Chip & Pin was (I also travel in Europe quite a bit) even after the Target issue.

Right.  Security comes from good clean design, thorough review, and working through the process of making independent interoperable implementations.  Which is why the history matters: it produced the result we have today.  Now years have been lost, and we need to start over, and have a more useful history that produces a useable result.  Except it will be harder than it should be, because of the people who got burned the first time through, and the people with a vested interest in the status-quo.

For non-technical friends: DNS is a basic part of making the Internet work, and DNSSEC is a way of protecting it from hijacking attacks (where, for example, you unknowingly enter a credit card number into a site that looks just like Amazon).

For my technical friends: DNSSEC isn't yet just a switch you flip. Besides all the resolver configuration, it also requires making sure switches, routers and firewalls are DNSSEC-ready, and even that resolver software is at a specific level.

Thanks for making me somewhat more DNSSEC clueful to:

+Karl Auerbach and +Chris Wellens for giving me a push

+Michael Lucas for writing yet another excellent guide

+Alan Clegg for masochistically answering my many stupid questions; and

+Stuart Sheldon for providing valuable clue from experience in even more masochistically running older versions of Bind

Today is the 100th birthday of Hedy Lamarr, actress and inventor, without whom we would not have cell phones, Wi-Fi, or a pretty good running gag in Blazing Saddles

There is an interesting play about her and George Antheil and the invention of spread spectrum radio called "Frequency Hopping".
