You guys asked me to break out this information instead of posting as comments on the original post.

Here is more updated information on the WPA2 Hole 196 vulnerability now that AirTight has given the demo at BlackHat/Defcon. (more…)

I luv you’z guys and I usually agree with both of you on all matters NAC-ish and 1X-ish, but I have to disagree with today’s flurry of 802.1X-adoption talk.

What exactly am I yapping about? Well, today Tim at Network World posted a nice article on the growing adoption of 802.1X. Shortly after, Alan jumped in with his post on ‘Is 802.1X in Your Future?’. You can see my notes below, and I definitely recommend reading the original articles. (more…)

I was so impressed by the personal attention and quick response from Network World’s customer service department, I feel compelled to acknowledge it publicly and send a ‘thank you’ to their team.

Monday morning, just one business day after my pining post last Thursday night (remember Friday was a holiday), I received a call from an extremely helpful and courteous lady in the customer service department. Evidently someone does actually read my blog and had forwarded the post to NWW.

Not only did she help me get fixed up with my regular delivery, she placed the current week’s edition in the mail for me- special delivery!

And I’m greatly thankful, since this week’s cover is sporting the 10Gig Shootout, which highlights the HP ProCurve 3500 stackables. Although, I have to note, on the print cover, the photos aren’t next to the vendor descriptions. Just in case you were wondering, the ProCurve switch came in a very strong second, .03 of a point off I believe, and about half the price (and lifetime warranty). Sorry had to slip that in there too. Check out the scorecard at NWW.

So, thanks to whomever forwarded the post to NWW, and a special thanks for the quick help from their customer support!

Where Arst Thou Network World?

Oh where, oh where has my Network World goneMIA.jpg
Oh where, oh where can it be
With its advertising short and its articles long
Oh where, oh where can it be?

*Sigh* Yet again, my NW has gone MIA from home delivery (which is where I get the stuff I really want to read). Last time it took weeks to re-establish delivery, not sure what is happening here.

But – alas- I am forced to resort to thievery, lifting unclaimed copies from the office before their rightful owners can get them. My sticky finger solution is difficult to execute while traveling, so I’m working on other plots to reclaim my delivery…
