The slides from our Networkshop session on Learning from Software Vulnerabilities are now available. All three talks showed how managing the process of finding, reporting and fixing vulnerabilities can improve the quality of software and the security of our systems.

Recently I had a thought-provoking discussion on Twitter (thanks to my guides) on the practice of setting your users phishing tests: sending them e-mails that tempt them to do unsafe things with their passwords, then providing feedback. I've always been deeply ambivalent about this. Identifying phishing messages is hard (see how you do on OpenDNS's quiz), and creating "teachable moments" may well be a good way to help us all learn.

E-infrastructures are large computer systems with considerable processing and storage capacity and in some cases, holding valuable or sensitive data. They are therefore likely to be attractive targets for attackers with a wide range of motivations. However, to support international research, e-infrastructures must be accessible to users located anywhere on the Internet. In many cases users will upload and run their own software or virtual machines and exchange large volumes of data over high-speed networks.
