Computer Security Tips from Bruce Schneier

Bruce's main points:

1. The State of Encryption: "Not that great, and getting worse"

2. DNSSEC: It's In Your Future
The Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC) technology is all about cryptographically signing DNS information in order to provide a new layer of integrity and authenticity. The call for "DNSSEC Everywhere" was first raised in the summer of 2008, after security researcher Dan Kaminsky revealed that DNS was at risk from attack.

3. The Best Defense: Backup, AntiVirus, and a Good "Bullshit Detector"

4. Software: "All Equally Mediocre"
