Weekly Update 298

I somehow ended up blasting through an hour and a quarter in this week’s video with loads of discussion on the CTARS / NDIS data breach then a real time "let’s see what the fuss is about" with news that one of our state’s digital driver’s licenses (DDL) may be easily forgeable. I think the whole discussion is actually really interesting when looked at through the lens of how on balance, a digitized license compares to a physical one. As you’ll see, I think the reporting on this is overblown however … the weak encryption keys do seem like an oversight and the response of Service NSW to criticism has been lackluster at best. Let’s see how it goes in other states, I’ll be first in line when they roll out in Queensland so I can finally start leaving my wallet at home!

  2. I got pwned in the MGM Resorts data breach (I did not even know until I checked my old Hotmail address)
  3. The CTARS / NDIS data breach is really nasty (just really super sensitive medical data)
  4. The controversial around the ability to forge New South Wales digital driver’s feels overblown (let’s stop asking whether it’s a perfect security construct and instead ask how it differs to the old physical plastic licenses)
