comment Which is more secure: develop a mobile app in its Native language or using cross-platform UI?
+1, very good in pointing out the conflicting considerations needed to make an intelligent tradeoff for him. But one question, are there no mobile frameworks that specifically add security features / secure APIs?

Just curious, what did you think [security-theater] means? I removed it...

comment How can I mitigate the threat that DPAPick poses to my DPAPI protected data?
This is... shocking, to say the least. I'm definitely going to be trying another few times to really understand that paper... But in the meantime, we're back at looking for a solution?? @Bell, thanks for the headsup on this....

comment What key attributes indicate candidate potential for future success in a security career?
One point I disagree with, is the old-school hackers. Not so much disagree, rather I would qualify it: those guys would do great in the "breaking" sort of tasks - e.g. pentests, reviews, etc. However if you're looking for security engineering / architecture, I've found that a "hackerish" mindset (in the original meaning of the term) fall down flat, and usually don't realize it.

Another non-CS discipline that can produce good candidates, is actually law, for when it comes to those sticky policies and regulations.

Re correlation, there is also a higher number of martial artists in the security niche, than in the general IT fields... or at least so it seems...

comment Lessons learned and misconceptions regarding encryption and cryptology
Only sentence I disagree with: "This is a less common error these days"... Still one of the most common crypto errors I see, after No encryption and Rolling your own crypto.
