Keeping my profile low-key was interesting. Especially seeing how some of the "higher-ups" on this forum have interacted. So let's be an open book now and be a bit more descriptive...

Security is my life. I have lived it from the beginning of my professional career. My life has included significant time as an operator in Special Operations, a Law Enforcement Officer, and yes a Information Security Professional. These activities have spanned some 30 years, an my credentials are extensive but yes include some of the ridiculous ones like CISSP, etc.

My current work includes working with commercial and governmental entities at high and low levels. I advise and assist on matters of physical security, social engineering, and technical security. My current focus, aside from normal matters of information security, is around privacy and mobile security (separate issues.

For fun, you will find me doing many things from sky diving, competitive shooting, martial arts...

Much of what I write or share on here comes not from reading it, or theorizing about it, but from "bullets flying at me living it". So take it or leave it, up-vote me or down-vote me - honestly I could care less. Its your choice.

comment How safe/secure are banking applications on Android phones?
Look dingus (gowenfawr), its a state jurisdictional issue but fundamentally the transaction is repudiated and end points are known. I said, there are hassles and there are, which is why you should have identity theft insurance (vs lifelock). But in the end the transaction can be reversed. Wow, I quit helping on this site for a while, because of crap like this, now I think I will again.

Well the simple answer would be because I hack them every day! :) Android devices are not any technically more or less "hackable" than windows (or mac). However usage patterns, and hackable routes are more prolific as well as people tend to be more promiscuous in their security.

comment Credential (et al) storage on Android - And general application credential storage inquiry
a. it is a question i am seeking answers for... and imminent need. b. it is a valid type of question for this forum with specificity (I spoke initially and directly about Android, but opened it to larger ideas to aid/help in the discussion). c. the question is about identifying what may be missed in my search and seeking other possibilities if nothing major has been missed - which there are dozens out here. WTF more should this site be about? Just answering newbie, "I can't find my power plug" questions?

I swear I am about to quit this forum... If we can't talk about stuff like this, then why have a forum? Jesus!

comment Linux Runtime Memory protection
I find the audience on this forum, and some of the people who moderate tend to lack a sense of humor, nor believe Socratic method of solving problems. I assumed you were looking for something different, but as some of the other commentators indicated, it was unclear what you were looking for. Personally, it is my opinion that we are chasing a dragon's tail by continuously trying to find a "better way to protect run-time memory". Remember the old physical security theorem - there isn't a lock you can't figure out how to pick. I think we have to look at the problem differently.

comment Can you tell if your computer was hacked and pictures stolen from 2-6 months ago?
Actually the likely source is the flash drive... Every place she has taken the flash drive, someone could have peeled them off of it, even if she thought they were deleted off of it. Quite honestly she is an "ex" for a reason... politely remind her of that fact, tell her that her drama is her drama and kick her and her "prove to me" to the curb. Your wasting your time, my friend, no proof will satisfy such twits.
