Peter Bihr, Gründer der Strategiefirma „The Waving Cat“, erklärt, dass es derzeit beim Internet der Dinge noch an Sicherheit, Transparenz und Kontrolle mangelt. Meist sei es für Verbraucher*innen nicht nachvollziehbar, wer die Dienste betreibt und Zugriff auf die Daten hat.

DOJ: Strong Encryption That We Don't Have Access To Is 'Unreasonable'

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Ars Technica:

Just two days after the FBI said it could not get into the Sutherland Springs shooter's seized iPhone, Politico Pro published a lengthy interview with a top Department of Justice official who has become the "government's unexpected encryption warrior." According to the interview, which was summarized and published in transcript form on Thursday for subscribers of the website, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein indicated that the showdown between the DOJ and Silicon Valley is quietly intensifying. "We have an ongoing dialogue with a lot of tech companies in a variety of different areas," he told Politico Pro. "There's some areas where they are cooperative with us. But on this particular issue of encryption, the tech companies are moving in the opposite direction. They're moving in favor of more and more warrant-proof encryption." "I want our prosecutors to know that, if there's a case where they believe they have an appropriate need for information and there is a legal avenue to get it, they should not be reluctant to pursue it," Rosenstein said. "I wouldn't say we're searching for a case. I''d say we're receptive, if a case arises, that we would litigate."

In the interview, Rosenstein also said he "favors strong encryption." "I favor strong encryption, because the stronger the encryption, the more secure data is against criminals who are trying to commit fraud," he explained. "And I'm in favor of that, because that means less business for us prosecuting cases of people who have stolen data and hacked into computer networks and done all sorts of damage. So I'm in favor of strong encryption." "This is, obviously, a related issue, but it's distinct, which is, what about cases where people are using electronic media to commit crimes? Having access to those devices is going to be critical to have evidence that we can present in court to prove the crime. I understand why some people merge the issues. I understand that they're related. But I think logically, we have to look at these differently. People want to secure their houses, but they still need to get in and out. Same issue here." He later added that the claim that the "absolutist position" that strong encryption should be by definition, unbreakable, is "unreasonable." "And I think it's necessary to weigh law enforcement equities in appropriate cases against the interest in security," he said.

TSA Plans to Use Face Recognition to Track Americans Through Airports

The “PreCheck” program is billed as a convenient service to allow U.S. travelers to “speed through security” at airports. However, the latest proposal released by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) reveals the Department of Homeland Security’s greater underlying plan to collect face images and iris scans on a nationwide scale. DHS’s programs will become a massive violation of privacy that could serve as a gateway to the collection of biometric data to identify and track every traveler at every airport and border crossing in the country.

Bei Facebook haben Nutzer zwei Profile: Ein normales und ein „Schattenprofil“.  CC-BY-NC-ND 2.0 Christian Weidinger

Facebook und die heimlichen „Schattenprofile“

Facebook weiß, mit wem ich in meinem Leben schon mal Kontakt hatte – egal ob online oder offline. Das zumindest beschreibt Kashmir Hill in einem Artikel auf gizmodo.com. Sie erklärt, wie Facebook über das Auslesen von Adressbüchern und Nachrichteninhalten vielfältige Informationen gewinnt und so versucht, soziale Netzwerke von Menschen zu (re)konstruieren. Das Unternehmen erstellt dafür „Schattenprofile“ mit sämtlichen Daten und Informationen zu seinen Usern, auf die nur der Konzern selbst zugreifen kann.

Datenschützer kritisieren jahrelange Speicherung von Fluggastdaten

Wer eine Flugreise bucht, übermittelt Daten. Diese werden mitunter jahrelang gespeichert und an andere Staaten übermittelt. Datenschutzbeauftragte halten dies für nicht rechtens.

Studie: DevOps-Teams gehen häufig leichtfertig mit Zugangsdaten um

In vielen Unternehmen mangelt es den DevOps-Abteilungen an Regeln für den sicheren Umgang mit privilegierten Accounts und Zugangsdaten – vielfach fehlt eine übergreifende Sicherheitsstrategie, wie CyberArks „Advanced Threat Landscape“-Report zeigt.
