I'm in Texas! And I've had enough BBQ to last me a very long time. I'm here doing a couple of speaking events and other related things as well as taking some time out with my wife to see the sites. As such, it's a bit quieter this week but there's still a couple of things I reckon are worthy of discussion.
Just before jumping on the plane over here I pushed out a blog post on how my approach to callbacks in HIBP broke Mozilla's service which in turn broke my Azure Function. This was one of those cases where sure, I didn't want anything to break, but it was a good learning experience that helped me make a bunch of very positive changes.
That's it for this week and yes, I know it's late, but travel makes this really hard on this front. I'll try and get ahead of things for the coming week and push it out a little earlier.
- Watch Kanye West authenticate with a PIN of 000000 (there were some really unexpected comments from the infosec community on this)
- I wrote about Face ID back in September last year (there's a serious lack of pragmatism amongst those decrying biometric auth)
- I broke Mozilla's endpoint for HIBP callbacks (but learned some other valuable lessons in the process)
- Gold Security is sponsoring my blog again this week (big thanks to those guys for their ongoing support!)
