Monthly Blog Round-Up – July 2009

As we all know, blogs are a bit "stateless" and a lot of good content gets lost since many people, sadly, only pay attention to what they see today. These monthly round-ups is my attempt to remind people of useful content from the past month! If you are “too busy to read the blogs,” at least read these.

So, here is my next monthly "Security Warrior" blog round-up of top 5 popular posts/topics.

  1. Now every blogger has that experience: his most loved, deep, insightful post gets little traffic, while something fun and stupid gets loads of it: example this month is my “Nobody Is That Dumb ... Oh, Wait XII” about the evils of honeypots in Norway…
  2. I am no longer surprised that “Why No Open Source SIEM, EVER?” “rules the seas”, taking #2 spot this month, just as last month. The older inspiration for this post is “On Open Source in SIEM and Log Management.”
  3. My review and coverage of the book “Beautiful Security” (“Best Chapter From “Beautiful Security” Downloadable!” and “Book Review “Beautiful Security””) is popular due to a lot of linking to it.
  4. Vulnerability Scanning and Clouds/SaaS/IaaS/PaaS” post, which is basically a “link and quote” post to this was in Top 5. It helps to continue the discussion about vulnerability assessment of cloud infrastructure (a topic which will be featured in a few posts soon…)
  5. BlackHat 2009 Day 1 – Laws of Vulnerabilities Panel” is next. I have three more very fun BlackHat/DEFCON posts in the queue; never had a chance to write them since I was finishing that PCI DSS book last week.

See you in July. Also see my annual “Top Posts” (2007, 2008)
