    COVID-19 Data Analytics – CF061

    This week on Cyber Frontiers Christian and Jim tackle the technology shaping society amidst the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We dive into the health (and growth) of the internet backbone, working from home, and distance learning to name a few. We then switch gears into discussing how data and analytic capabilities behind the virus tricked into the mainstream and is now widely available to society at large to make well informed decisions. We specifically highlight the importance of accurate data visualizations to not skew good data, and highlight Corona Data Scraper as a model of open-source, scalable, accurate data analytics and visualizations

    Adversarial Machine Learning – CF060

    This week on Cyber Frontiers Christian and Jim dive into ‘jedi mind tricks’ of AI, better known as adversarial machine learning. We narrate stories that tell tales of fooling the common systems that humans have come to rely on today, from maps to self driving cars, to airport scanners and identification systems. We discuss the growing surface area for cyber physical attacks, and the lack of general purpose solutions and proofs needed to tackle securing machine learning algorithms. We tie together IoT, AI, and ML technologies on the cyber frontier with a new security perspective not analyzed prior on the

    Quantum Supremacy and the Cryptology Time Machine – CF058

    This week on Cyber Frontiers Christian and Jim recap the latest major development in quantum research with Google’s “Quantum Supremacy” milestone. We review the headline narratives and compare today’s quantum progress with where we and others expected it to be. We delve into the tangentially related topic of cryptography, quickly leading to a walk through time of where secure computing has been and where it could be heading looking forward. Scattered throughout we bring in what it all means for the average guy, and even get some time to relate it all back to… ham radios?  Cyber Frontiers is

    The Manifestation of New Exploitation – CF056

    This week on Cyber Frontiers we catch up on some of the latest exploitations and availability drops on the web. We kick off with a discussion of the release of the TCP SACK panic as a new mechanism for DDoS via TCP protocol. We then cover a spectrum of relevant security news with the Microsoft OS product line to round off our security deep dives. On the availability side, we recap the Target outage and the Google Cloud Outage and what it means for consumers. We round things off with some healthy skepticism of Facebook’s new Libra crypto-currency. And as
