Weekly Update 89

An exciting weekly update - I got an award! I did write about it earlier this morning, but I talk about it more in this week's update and explain why it means a lot.

In other news, I'm heading back to Europe in a few days from now so am doing the last-minute rush tying up loose ends here, finishing presentations and just generally preparing myself for what will be another hectic few weeks. I also killed off the non-anonymous endpoints of Pwned Passwords today so it's k-anonymity all the way now. Plus, in this week's blog posts, the Spanish government comes on board HIBP and I write about some really cool large-scale use cases of Pwned Passwords. Oh - and I took a bit of an ethical stance on a sponsor, that's worth listening to if you're interested in how I choose who appears on the bar at the top of this page. Next week, I'll come to you from London, see you then!

  1. All Pwned Passwords API endpoints that didn't ensure anonymity are now gone! (that's a link to the original blog post on why I was doing it)
  2. The Spanish gov is now using HIBP to identify breaches impacting gov email addresses (they join the UK and Australia, with more govs to come yet)
  3. There's same awesome real world use cases of Pwned Passwords now (check out 1Password, EVE Online, Kogan and Okta, among others)
  4. Varonis is sponsoring my blog this week (a last-minute substitution, but an organisation I've got a lot of respect for)
