This episode is a news cast.
Listener feedback this week is from a different Brian, discussing the possible successes or failures of a proposed SciFi Channel adaptation of Neal Stephenson’s The Diamond Age.
The sole security alert this week is some weak reporting on a key crypto research problem, the breaking of SHA-1.
In this week’s news, WSJ catches up with Capn’ Crunch, Jon Draper, Amit Singh of Google ports FUSE to Mac OSX, the NYT dings the iPhone for its DRM, Open Moko, the open source cell phone, gains momentum with a release schedule, and a “me too” file sharing app nets some silliness claiming to use Tube technology. Am I the only one that thinks of Tenacious D first, before Senator Stevens, when people mention Tube technology?
This week, I follow up on AACS and Vista DRM developments. The AACS consortium responds to the crack of WinDVD/BackupHDDVD including remarks from Michael Ayers, who was an invited speaker at Cory’s speaker series. muslix64, with a collaborator this time, is claiming to have now cracked Blu-ray’s implementation of AACS. Security Now interviews Peter Guttman and Microsoft responds to Guttman’s paper.
