In IoT we trust — or do we?

first_imgThe expanding circle of distrust fueled by the Internet of Things (IoT)I whip out my device to make a payment at the checkout counter of our local hardware store. And I pause. Should I let the point-of-sale system extract all my data? Can I trust this device? Do I have any control over who gets access to the data captured? We may get what we pay for — but, adversaries can get what we pay with! We don’t usually encounter adversaries face-to-face and our primary interface remains these point-of-sale systems, web clicks and other devices that are part of the Internet of Things. Thanks to recent hacks with the customer’s data at various retail chains, I am beginning to develop a sense of distrust in these very “things” and devices. Complementing the Circle of Trust I have developed over the years with close family and friends, IoT is injecting itself into a rapidly expanding Circle of Distrust.And I pay with cash instead — because You may get what you pay for but They can get what you pay with!Daniel Miessler introduces the concepts of “personal daemons” and “universal daemonization” in this article on Future of the Internet and the Internet of Things.  The word “daemon” in concept, takes me back many years when I used to foray into the guts of the UNIX kernel where daemons represented programs that run continuously as a background process – e.g. a printing daemon. Interestingly enough, the word “daemon” semantically means a spirit, a supernatural being, a demi-god.Miessler does refer to the IoT having its own daemons that perpetually interact with each other.However, bugs like Shellshock have the ability to take over control of the command script that can transform computing “daemons” into mythological “demons”. Happy Halloween! The fact that such bugs can continue to penetrate the landscape of devices only accentuates my circle of distrust.And then, checkout devices that look and act like – of all creatures – like a snake! The last thing that comes to mind when I think of a serpentine creature is trust!I finish my purchases and come home. My neighbor’s dog (Poodle you say?) comes running up to me furiously wagging its fluffy tail. Now, here is a being that I trust — a lifelong member of my Circle of Trust. But, do I trust the device around its neck that sends out signals to control the dog’s movements? I am not so sure. Yet another member of the Circle of Distrust.How about you? How do you contrast your level of trust in humans versus machines? What is growing faster – your Circle of Trust or your Circle of Distrust?I trust you will let me know. Or can I?Twitter: @NadhanEGlast_img read more

Lawyer who emailed Tressel identified

Columbus attorney Christopher T. Cicero, a former OSU walk-on linebacker, was the man who informed Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel that members of his team were committing NCAA rules violations, according to The Columbus Dispatch. Cicero, 54, was a member of the Buckeyes in 1983, the first year in which Tressel was an assistant at OSU under coach Earle Bruce. OSU performed an internal investigation that uncovered that Cicero e-mailed Tressel in April 2010 to inform him that multiple OSU football players were selling memorabilia and receiving improper benefits from Eddie Rife, the owner of a Columbus tattoo shop who was under a federal investigation for drug trafficking charges. Cicero and Tressel exchanged eight e-mails between April 2, 2010, and June 6, 2010, regarding the matter. OSU released the e-mails between Cicero and Tressel on Tuesday with Cicero’s name and other content redacted. OSU’s internal investigation found that Tressel had failed to properly report the potential violations to the university and recommended on Tuesday that he be suspended for the first two games of the 2011 season and be fined $250,000. In December, six OSU players — Terrelle Pryor, Dan Herron, Mike Adams, DeVier Posey, Solomon Thomas and Jordan Whiting — were suspended for the start of the 2011 season for selling memorabilia and receiving improper benefits. In Cicero’s e-mails, he expressed concern about the players selling their keepsakes. “These kids are selling these items for not that much and I cant (sic) understand how they could give something so precious away like their trophy’s and rings that they worked so hard for,” Cicero said in an e-mail to Tressel on April 16. In that e-mail, Cicero went on to explain how his father worked two jobs to provide for his family before dying in 2001 at the age of 67. His father, Carmello Cicero, of Lyndhurst, Ohio, worked as a police officer, steel mill worker and volunteer firefighter at various points in his life. In a press conference to announce the violations, Tressel said he did not report the potential violations because Cicero had requested in his second e-mail that the information be kept confidential. “I needed to keep sight of the fact that confidentiality was requested by the attorney,” Tressel said. “I’ve learned that I probably needed to go to the top legal council person at the university.” Cicero could not be reached for comment. OSU director of media relations Jim Lynch did not immediately return comment. read more

first_imgBy Mark F. Gray, Special to the AFRO, mgray@afro.comNational respect for the Bowie State football program has been a long time coming, but it has finally arrived.  The defending CIAA champions, who won their first postseason game ever last season, find themselves ranked in the top 25 nationally heading toward the kickoff of the 2019 season.Bowie State University (BSU) is ranked 25th amongst the nation’s Top 30 Division II programs by College Football America.  The Bulldogs find themselves under the national microscope after their most successful season in school history. The Bulldogs finished last season with a 10-3 overall record, 6-1 in league play and captured Bowie State’s first-ever CIAA crown in 2018. Bowie State was ranked No. 25 amongst the nation’s Top 30 Division II programs by College Football America.

The Walsh Fellowship is an annual program operated by the NFL’s Management Council and NFL Player Engagement.“I look forward to the opportunity of working alongside some of the best coaches in the country as I continue to sharpen my skills to continue to prepare our student athletes,” Wilson said in a statement released by the university’s sports information department after earning the fellowship. “I believe opportunities like this is a win for all parties involved and I look forward to being able to implement some of the things that I will learn from Coach [Adam] Gase and his staff.” The program’s objective is to use NFL training camps and offseason workout programs to give talented minority coaches opportunities to observe, participate and gain experience that may ultimately help them gain a full-time NFL coaching position.“Another positive in an internship like this is establishing relationships and confirming that as a college coach you can justify what the NFL teams are looking for from our college student-athletes,” said Wilson.Bowie State University opens preseason practice for the 2019 season on Friday, August 16 in Bulldogs Stadium in preparation for the regular season opener September 7 at American International College in Springfield, Mass. Wilson will be forced to put what he learned with the Jets staff to use immediately as the Bulldogs try to fortify a team that moves ahead without the greatest player in the history of the program.  BSU’s biggest void to fill will be find a replacement for two time HBCU Player of the Year Amir Hall who graduated after rewriting the school’s all time records.After being a veteran team for the last two years this year’s they will rely heavily on a group of  understudies who will finally get their chance to contribute.last_img read more

With the bases loaded, Britton lined a ball past the diving right fielder that rolled to the wall and allowed all three runs to score. Zeke Pinkham then brought him home with a sacrifice fly to cap the five-run inning. Story Links Louisville starting pitcher Nick Bennett is in line for the win should the Cardinals hold on for the victory.

Léa Seydoux Adèle Exarchopoulos Jane Birkin Cast in VR Series Spheres EXCLUSIVE

first_imgIt will mark the first step into VR for Birkin as well as Seydoux and Exarchopoulos, the Palme d’Or winning actresses of “Blue Is the Warmest Color.” Speaking to Variety, McNitt said the trio “represented three generations of women who embody the universe” and “help elevate this experience to become a piece of cinema.” “Each actress embodies the power and grace of the characters, and each has her own interpretation of the character they’re stepping into,” added McNitt, who is currently developing her first feature film.McNitt said she has always been inspired by “The Little Prince” and had the desire, through “Spheres,” to “connect art and science with poetry.”Arnaud Colinart, Altas V’s co-founder and producer, said the high-profile French voice cast underscored Atlas V’s strategy to deliver local versions in select territories in order lure broad audiences.The same strategy is being developed in Asia by City Lights, which represents “Spheres” in international markets. Atlas V has picked up French distribution rights to the French version, in collaboration with the Phi Center, and will aim at staging premium immersive events for “Spheres” in art centers and museums, such as the Rockfeller Center Exhibition, as well as upscale location-based venues.In France, Altas V is partnering with the well-established French producer Anne-Dominique Toussaint (“Capernaum”) to host a private premiere of “Spheres” at Toussaint’s Gallerie Cinema, a Parisian art and photography gallery where many filmmakers, including James Franco, have hosted exhibits of their works. The premiere of the first two episodes of “Spheres” will inaugurate the Gallerie Cinema’s new VR space, along with several artists who will exhibit their space-themed creations. Toussaint said he was looking to build bridges between art, cinema and science through this new VR venue.McNitt, who is currently in Paris for the inauguration, said she was particularly happy to have “Spheres” premiere at Toussaint’s gallery because it positions “Spheres” as a work of art, rather than a video game-type experience. Léa Seydoux, Adèle Exarchopoulos and Jane Birkin are set to narrate Eliza McNitt’s science-themed VR series “Spheres,” which is executive produced by Darren Aronofsky.The English version of “Spheres,” an interactive journey inspired by the iconic “Pale Blue Dot” image of planet Earth, was narrated by Jessica Chastain, Patti Smith and Millie Bobby Brown. An episode of “Spheres” world premiered at Sundance – where the series was snapped up in a seven-figure deal – and a second one premiered at Tribeca, and all three episodes played in competition at the Venice Film Festival.The French version of “Spheres” is being produced by Darren Aronofsky and Ari Handel’s banner Protozoa and Paris-based Atlas V, with the support of France’s international tax rebate for international productions, and the region Auvergne Rhone-Alpes Cinéma. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.
