Schneier on His Love for Security Vendors

This article on the Wired web site yesterday is no surprise for followers of Bruce Schneier. He talked about why security vendors sell lousy products. Vintage Schneier. I liked his analysis of the economics of how bad products drive out good ones. This is something else he's good at -- economic explanations of security.

There was a reference to how Tweakers.net cracked the 4 GB USB stick he uses. Nice job there too with screen shots of how they did it.

The Tweakers.net web site appears to be a great collection of tech news -- in Dutch -- for those fortunate enough to speak that language. Unfortunately, it's not one of the six languages I speak (English, Spanish, Hebrew, Arabic, Italian and Portuguese). Maybe I should work on adding it to my list . . .
