Weekly update 45

This week I've had my head down working on a new course for Ubiquiti, the guys who make the very fine wifi things I now have in my house and since writing about them, many others do too. I'll be sharing more about that in the coming weeks but whilst I had the parts handy, I thought I'd show folks what would be going into the build I'll do next week.

The other major thing this week was the blog post about modernising our approach to passwords. I honestly didn't expect this to be so well received and it looks like it's been read over 100k times in the last 48 hours! I suspect people are just sick of inane password rules and practices and the post was music to their ears, not least of which because it's based on guidance by NIST and the NCSC so a couple of authoritative resources right there. Whatever the reason, I'm glad it's been well received and that people are finding it so useful. That and more in this week's update.
