Root Causes Episode 43: Quantum Apocalypse - More on Mosca's Inequality

In episode 35 our hosts explained Mosca's Inequality, a formula for calculating when we need to have post-quantum encryption in place to prevent the Quantum Apocalypse. In this episode our hosts embark on a nuanced exploration of the factors influencing this calculation and test whether popular estimates are credible.

  • The Four Pillars of Certificate Automation Jun 30 2021 1:00 pm UTC 52 mins
    Tim Callan, Chief Compliance Officer at Sectigo & Jason Soroko, CTO of PKI at Sectigo
    The more automated your approach to Digital Identity across the enterprise, the better off you are. Think about the risk of an outage if a certificate expires or if certificates are unknowingly deployed in your environment. How quickly can you swap out all of your certificates due to an unplanned or strategic event? Those are just a few examples, but you get the point! We cannot underestimate the impact of not using automation in identity management, especially as certificate lifespans are now becoming shorter and shorter, and quantum computing is looming on the horizon

    Tim Callan, Chief Compliance Officer at Sectigo & Jason Soroko, CTO of PKI at Sectigo
    When you're implementing or modifying PKI across your infrastructure, there are many ways it can go wrong. We've outlined 21 of the most common PKI mistakes and how to avoid them. But don't freak out; we've categorized them into five themes, all of which we will cover in this 45-minute webinar.

    Join Sectigo Chief Compliance Officer Tim Callan and CTO of PKI Jason Soroko as they discuss in detail these common PKI pitfalls to avoid:
    • Certificate problems
    • Deployment problems
    • Systemic security problems
    • Governance problems
    • Visibility problems

We explore how PKI fits in with orchestration engines like Kubernetes and some of the practical considerations in securely using keys in such environments.
  • Root Causes Episode 68: Why SHA - 1 Is No Longer Secure Recorded: May 5 2021 32 mins
    Tim Callan, Senior Fellow at Sectigo & Jason Soroko, CTO of PKI at Sectigo
    SHA-1 was a cornerstone of the early secure web. Now, 25 years later, this hashing function is no longer secure. Join our hosts to hear the history of SHA-1, its common use cases, and the properties of an effective hashing function. Learn about collision attacks and why they matter. Find out the reasons SHA-1 is still in use and why it is no longer secure in today's computing world.
  • Root Causes Episode 67: Definition of DevOps and DevSecOps Recorded: May 3 2021 23 mins
    Tim Callan, CCO at Sectigo, Jason Soroko, CTO of PKI at Sectigo, & David Colon, Senior DevOps Engineer at Sectigo
    Our hosts are joined by senior DevOps engineer David Colon to explore what DevOps means in today's enterprise. They cover diverse aspects of the DevOps phenomenon, including cultural implications, "configuration drift," definition of release velocity, and DevSecOps.

  • Root Causes Episode 66: Functional Versus Homomorphic Encryption Recorded: Apr 30 2021 16 mins
    Tim Callan, Senior Fellow at Sectigo & Jason Soroko, CTO of PKI at Sectigo
    Traditionally, file encryption is an all-or-nothing affair where data cannot be gleaned from the encrypted file without fully decrypting its contents. A new brand of cryptography called homomorphic encryption makes it possible for specific types of data to be read from a file while the rest of it remains encrypted. Join our hosts as they explain this new technology approach and its possible implications and use cases.
  • Root Causes Episode 65: Quantum Key Distribution Recorded: Apr 28 2021 19 mins
    Tim Callan, Senior Fellow at Sectigo & Jason Soroko, CTO of PKI at Sectigo
    Quantum key distribution is a new technology that uses the principles of quantum physics to generate and distribute truly random keys for encrypted communication. Join us as we explain how quantum key distribution works, why it is not the same as quantum safe cryptography, and which cases it may be useful for.
  • Root Causes Episode 64: What is Digital Identity? Recorded: Apr 26 2021 30 mins
    Tim Callan, Senior Fellow at Sectigo & Jason Soroko, CTO of PKI at Sectigo
    The phrase "identity is the new perimeter" has gained in use of late, reflecting the reality that today's modern enterprise architecture is a mix of traditional and cloud, owned and rented and BYOD, all together in a complex mix. Under those circumstances identity is key to determine which digital entities have which permissions. But what do we mean when we say identity? Join our hosts as they explain the concepts behind digital identity, how they compare to our offline ideas around identity, and how these ideas shape computer security.
  • Root Causes Episode 63: What is CAA? Recorded: Apr 23 2021 10 mins
