 Zero trust networking may be a foreign concept to you, but Google and others have been utilizing this method of infrastructure and networking for quite a while now. It stands more traditional networking on it's head by not having a boundry in the traditional sense. There's no VPN, no ACLs to audit, no firewall to maintain... Sounds crazy right?

Well, it's all about trust, or the lack of it. No one trusts anyone without a proper chain of permission. Utilizing 2FA, concepts of port knocking, and CA certificates are used to properly vet both the host and the server and are used to keep the whole system safe and as secure as possible.

Sounds great right? Well, and you can imagine, with our interview this week, we find out that it's not prefect, people have to implement their own Zero Trust Networking solution, and unless you are a mature organization, with things like complete asset management, data flow, and configuration management, you aren't ready to implement it.

Join us as we discuss Zero Trust Networking with Doug Barth (@dougbarth), and Evan Gilman (@evan2645)

Who benefits from this? Network engineers, apparently… :)

Devs?

IT?

Sounds like a security nightmare… who would get the blame for it failing

 

How do we keep users from screwing up the security model? Putting certs on their personal boxes?

 Malware is big business, both from the people using it, to the people who sell companies blinky boxes to companies saying that they scare off bad guys.

The latest marketdroid speak appears to be the term 'fileless malware', which by definition...

 

FTA: “Malware from a "fileless" attack is so-called because it resides solely in memory, with commands delivered directly from the internet. The approach means that there's no executable on disk and no artefacts ("files") for conventional computer forensic analysis to pick up, rendering the attacks stealthy, if not invisible. Malware infections will still generate potential suspicious network traffic.”

 

https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/04/28/fileless_malware_menace/ -- by definition, not ‘fileless’

But many of the 'fileless' attacks require a 'file' to be opened to enable the initial infection.

This week, Michael Gough (@hackerhurricane) comes on to discuss his latest blog post (http://hackerhurricane.blogspot.com/2017/05/fileless-malware-not-so-fast-lets.html) and we discuss the fact that a lot of malware classification and categorization and how it fails to actually convey to leaders what it affects
