Farid Mheir's curator insight, December 18, 2016 12:02 PM

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

Surveillance is part of the web browsing experience mostly due to ads and social beacons. Trying to block them off not only degrades the user experience but may not provide the expected benefits as it may provide a different type of surveillance. Ad blocking does not appear to be the solution after all. So what can provide more privacy when surfing the web? The question remains open.

Jean-Marie Grange's comment, December 20, 2016 1:12 PM
Maybe one solution would be for content publishers to offer the choice of paying a fair amount for ad-free content... http://sco.lt/7CrAVl

How Dropbox securely stores your passwords: an inside look at top-tier cloud protection

How Dropbox securely stores your passwords: an inside look at top-tier cloud protection | It's a digital world | Scoop.it

In this post, we want to share more details of our current password storage mechanism and our reasoning behind it. Our password storage scheme relies on three different layers of cryptographic protections, as the figure below illustrates.

Very technical summary from dropbox of their password encryption algorithm.

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

I expect all cloud service providers to treat my information as confidential, starting with my passwords. With the care and attention that dropbox protects its password, you can see how top tier cloud providers - Google, Microsoft, Apple, Facebook - will most often be more secure than anything you can do, even if you are a fairly large corporation. Trust cloud services as they are probably more secure than whatever your internal IT can provide. It is their bread and butter and their reputation - and ultimately their whole business - relies on it.

Where Is Current Research on Blockchain Technology?—A Systematic Review

Where Is Current Research on Blockchain Technology?—A Systematic Review | It's a digital world | Scoop.it
Blockchain is a decentralized transaction and data management technology developed first for Bitcoin cryptocurrency. The interest in Blockchain technology has been increasing since the idea was coined in 2008. The reason for the interest in Blockchain is its central attributes that provide security, anonymity and data integrity without any third party organization in control of the transactions, and therefore it creates interesting research areas, especially from the perspective of technical challenges and limitations. In this research, we have conducted a systematic mapping study with the goal of collecting all relevant research on Blockchain technology. Our objective is to understand the current research topics, challenges and future directions regarding Blockchain technology from the technical perspective. We have extracted 41 primary papers from scientific databases. The results show that focus in over 80% of the papers is on Bitcoin system and less than 20% deals with other Blockchain applications including e.g. smart contracts and licensing. The majority of research is focusing on revealing and improving limitations of Blockchain from privacy and security perspectives, but many of the proposed solutions lack concrete evaluation on their effectiveness. Many other Blockchain scalability related challenges including throughput and latency have been left unstudied. On the basis of this study, recommendations on future research directions are provided for researchers.
Jean-Marie Grange's insight:
Blockchain technology has a great potential of development, but it is also facing some challenges. This in-deapth research list all those challenges.
