[podcast] Can you achieve Security Through Obscurity?

Author: BrBr | Published on December 7, 2015 | Views: 1545

That’s the question many think is an automatic ‘yes’.  Whether your httpd is running on port 82, or maybe your fancy #wordpress #module needs some cover because the code quality is just a little lower than where it should be, and you need to cover up some cruft. But maybe there are some times where things just need to be secure…

This week, Mr. Boettcher and I discuss reasons for obscuring for the sake of #security, when it’s a good idea, and when you shouldn’t #obscure anything (hint: using #ROT-14, for example)
