comment security metrics on softwares developed
I've studied most of these when I've got the CISSP. With a great likelihood probably I've to move in Gary McGraw's books.

comment security metrics on softwares developed
Ok, understood your point and with said purpose that make sense. it's always difficult to share with pure tech people what some numbers can communicate even if not 'tech founded'. At the moment I'm trying to push up my 'consultancy/managerial' sec skills. Do you have any suggestion about other books that are a MUST read on sec management ?

I totally disagree with your introduction but at the end I've chosen your answer, as unique answer to the question. To allow you to understand better why metrics are important I suggest to you to read this book: amazon.com/Security-Metrics-Replacing-Uncertainty-Doubt/dp/…

comment is there a way to indirectly uncharge rapidly a coin cell to defeat an anti tampering mechanism?
Indeed digging more in I've found that the anti-tampering mechanism for this device monitors the temperature.

I can't believe it's not crackable :D

what about microwave ? humidity ? magnetic ray from a medical equipment ?

What about increasing temperature/humidity of the room or something like that ?

Say that perfect security doesn't exist, , find a way to measure/have an idea on how secure/insecure all software are it's by the way useful to move from FUD (Fear, uncertainty and doubt) to a more numeric way to achieve more (not perfect but more than before) security driven by by number. Suppose you have 40 software with many weakness reported in it, from which software do you start to fix ? which weakness ? On the next release, where do you focalize your effort to prevent/ fix/ enforce the occurrence of less weakness/vulnerabilities?

@Manipulator, in regards to what security metrics highlight it's just a point of view. Does BSIMM suggest some security metrics specific on secure software developments ?

comment libraries alternative to gcc stack-protector / fortity source feature on linux
No, compiler add pre/post function check on the code for canary etc, but the functional code for the canary check or fail are in the libc. They are respectively __stack_chk_guard/__stack_chk_fail .

There isn't nothing wrong with the built-in functionality, my constraint is that I can't link the glibc.

What comment do you mean ?

comment What lawful interception standards are used outside Europe?
In Italy, our provider implement Lawful Interception following the ETSI specification, so every provider have a common way to do LI. For my employer I'm get involved in the design of a software solution, with a functional requirement of compatibility with ETSI standard. So after reading some of that specification the curiosity about non-EU get in me. :)

comment What are the most sophisticated techniques used by intruders you have found in the wild?
For every malware founded we made reverse engineering of it, so for the most we know what behaviour every malware have, but we haven't meet any advanced techniques in all of it!

comment What lawful interception standards are used outside Europe?
In Europe we have some standard regulation which goal is to regulate and standardize how the lawful interception network need to be deployed in every state of the Europe. is there a 'regulation' like that to uniform how lawful interception system need to be deployed ?

comment What key attributes indicate candidate potential for future success in a security career?
(Ask what are the last security (or related) book he/she have read and ask also what are the web site reference he read to learn or stay updated on it. If He/she don't have read any sort of book on security or don't know at least some security resource he don't have any real interest on security.

comment Is there any FOSS passive vulnerability scanner ? Not a NIDS but a vulnerability assessment tool
@Rory You have missing totally the point. do you know what is PVS and what you can do with it? I think no. I know that hypothetically you can made lot of stuff with snort, but it's not imaginable to write down about 40k rule to do what PVS do to do it in snort. Please before reply take a look here: tenable.com/products/tenable-passive-vulnerability-scanner and here: cgi.tenable.com/Features_PVS.pdf.

I don't know well snort but also tweaking it to detect banner of vulnerable host it's don't have any form of management GUI to handle this kind of stuff. Also, supposing I have a Intranet web serve vulnerable, every time a client connect to it, snort will made an Alert about a vulnerable host. Also this kind of hack can't be affordable to be used in a professional way.
