Episode #9 of the Standard Deviant Security Podcast is all about secure messaging on the Internet. Privacy and confidentiality is a very important topic and the constant data breaches and privacy violations we see in the news where users personal information is exposed really emphasizes how serious it is. We're going to be talking about secure messaging and some of the underlying cryptographic technologies that facilitate secure communications. It’s usually a very complex concept and it's not easy for most people to follow, so I've invited Justin Engler to the podcast. I had the pleasure of seeing his talk at DEF CON 23, which took the complicated topic of secure communications and cryptography and made it very understandable for people who aren't experts in the field.
Justin explains the basics, such as the difference between an unsecured message and a secure message, the common threat actors regular users have to be concerned about and key exchange. We also have a chance to discuss a very cool project he worked on a few years ago – a robot that guesses and enters 4-digit PINs!
