Wireless attacks on aircraft instrument landing systems

The Morning Paper

Wireless attacks on aircraft instrument landing systems Sathaye et al., no longer hold: Security was never considered by design as historically the ability to transmit and receive wireless signals required considerable resources and knowledge. In fact, today the majority of wireless systems employed in modern aviation have been shown to be vulnerable to some form of cyber-physical attacks. USENIX Security Symposium 2019.

A Developer's Guide to Optimizing Mobile App Performance

Employing QUIC Protocol to Optimize Uber’s App Performance

Uber Engineering

Uber operates on a global scale across more than 600 cities, with our apps relying entirely on wireless connectivity from over 4,500 mobile carriers. To deliver the real-time performance expected from Uber’s users, our mobile apps require low-latency and highly … The post Employing QUIC Protocol to Optimize Uber’s App Performance appeared first on Uber Engineering Blog.

Stuff The Internet Says On Scalability For February 8th, 2019

High Scalability

EFF : EU countries that do not have zero rating practices enjoyed a double digit drop in the price of wireless data after a year.

Fallacy #5: Topology doesn't change

Particular Software

Some protocols can run afoul of this changing topology — even something simple, like a wireless client disconnect. If one of these clients is on a wireless connection that gets interrupted, the client proxy continues to exist.

The Paradox of Connection

Edge Perspectives

Wireless technology has made it possible for us to connect to this digital infrastructure (and to each other) regardless of where we are in the world with much less expense and effort. We are becoming more connected with each other and less connected with each other at the same time. The Big Shift that we're experiencing on a global scale is full of paradox – this is just one of many, but a particularly important paradox to acknowledge and address.

Ginseng: keeping secrets in registers when you distrust the operating system

The Morning Paper

wpa_supplicant , an OSS library commonly used to connect to wireless networks using WPA , reads a cleartext password from a configuration file or network manager and stores in in memory. Ginseng: keeping secrets in registers when you distrust the operating system Yun & Zhong et al., NDSS’19. Suppose you did go to the extreme length of establishing an unconditional root of trust for your system, even then, unless every subsequent piece of code you load is also fully trusted (e.g.,

A More Ergonomic Setup

Tim Kadlec

I tested my typing on my wireless keyboard before plugging in the ErgoDox so I could compare. My neck and shoulders have bothered me since high school. Nothing debilitating, but a constant soreness and dull ache. I’m not 100% sure why but certainly my work environment is a very likely candidate. My posture can be questionable and for the longest time, I didn’t give even the slightest thought to the ergonomics of my setup.

Notes on 'It's a Write/Read Mobile Web'

Tim Kadlec

Reducing 23 inputs to 11 for Boingo Wireless signup increased conversions by 34% and 53% decrease in sign-up time. My meager, less-awesome-than-Luke attempt to take notes on Luke Wroblewski’s presentation as I assume it would be unreasonable to expect him to produce notes on his presentation as he does for other talks. Here are my notes on his presentation, “It’s a Write/Read Mobile Web” presented at Smashing Conference in 2013.

Sprint's Marathon

The Agile Manager

While a post-merger AT&T/T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless would have most of the customers, there are no switching penalties for long-term handset contract customers. There's been a lot of public hand-wringing at the proposed AT&T / T-Mobile USA merger, particularly with regard to Sprint. Sprint is a distant third in subscribers today, but this is a very dynamic market. Today's subscriber count may not be relevant to tomorrow's.
