This is a bit old (2006), but may be helpful towards your goal. http://usabilitynews.org/password-security-what-users-know-and-what-they-actually-do/ It is based on a study of 328 undergraduate and graduate level college students from Wichita State University volunteered to participate in the survey, and these students were also regular users of the ...

I can think of a few options. You can try submitting it as a talk at a security conference or two. This is probably one of the best ways to get your research out there if it is semi interesting. Even if the topic isn't accepted for one of the main talks, many conferences have lightning talk sections where any attendees can go up and speak for a few ...

These are the valid range for standard encoding of track 2, which is the ABA standard: 0x30 to 0x3f in the ASCII character set 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 : ; < = > ? Sources: http://blog.tehinterweb.com/?p=60 With enough control over the reader/writer, you can encode bits in anyway you choose though, could make up any system you like.

Some great approaches already suggested, here's my addition: Given the average security researcher will often have a less typical academic background than researchers in other fields, it's sometimes necessary to use different approaches to getting stuff published, distributed, or otherwise just 'known' of. I haven't published any security research myself, ...

Terry Chia had indeed given a good number of options. Just to add something more - if you think what you have researched is indeed something novel, you can try approaching some journal for publishing the data. IEEE Computer Society's Technical Committee on Security and Privacy, ACM Transactions on Information and System Security can be a good some of the ...

It all depends on the type of content your are posting. In most cases you will need more than one #Tag for your tweet to make the right sense and ranking. #InfoSec (preferred abbreviation) #InformationSecurity (if you have some characters left in your tweet) #Risk (Topics also relating to risk management) #Privacy #Malware #Virus #Spam #BYOD #DataTheft / ...

Any bug tracking software is the standard for this tool. Vulnerabilities you find are simply 'bugs'. Assign severity, track the vendor's response and follow-up, and detail the issues all within the tool. Github, bugzilla, Jira, etc. Choose the tool that matches your needs and workflow.

A magstripe holds bits. Tracks one and three are typically recorded at 210 bits per inch (8.27 bits per mm), while track two typically has a recording density of 75 bits per inch (2.95 bits per mm). Just like a USB stick or any other storage device, you can do whatever you wish with these bits, and use any encoding you desire. You can use full Unicode ...
