Enterprise Linux Security Episode 72 – Surveillance Facepalm
Imagine needing to ask your government permission in order to perform tasks such as installing a security patch, implementing an Intrusion Detection System, updating firmware or upgrading your operating system? If this sounds too ridiculous to be true, then you're right - it is ridiculous, but unfortunately it's a real proposal. In the U.K., Investigatory Powers Act 2016 (IPA) has had an adjustment proposed that could potentially make securing your systems more difficult than it's ever been.

Enterprise Linux Security Episode 71 – Internet DRM
In this episode, Jay and Joao talk about two recent news developments that may have important implications on the overall industry. First, In response to Microsoft's recent Azure debacle, a US Senator calls for a probe to look into the matter. Second, our main story is yet another facepalm worthy idea from Google that aims to add "integrity" to our browsers, but it's oddly lacking in said integrity and almost completely devoid of common sense. Google's "Web Integrity Protection" seems to protect only their ad dollars while making browsing more tedious for the end-user. Will it pass? What is it exactly? Jay and Joao have all the answers in this episode!
