#eweekchatNo- and Low-Code DevelopmentLet's chat about citizen development as creating software and special features gets into the hands of those using it on the front lines.

Have a great week, everybody! Until next Second Wednesday, CP out!

Next month's topic: #eWEEKChat Aug. 8: "What to Expect in New Mobile Devices This Fall."
Chris Preimesberger
We do these each month at #eWEEKchat, Second Wednesday at 11am PT/2pm ET, rain or shine. Now using the CrowdChat.net/weekch... channel. Love it!

Want to thank each of you who brought a perspective, opinion or data point to our community round table today.
Chris Preimesberger
There has been excellent insight in today's #eWEEKchat . Great to see this monthly community-type gathering so we can learn from each other.

Q5 add: What new threats must we be aware of as 2018 rounds into its second half?
Brian A. McHenry
pay close attention to cryptomining campaigns as discussed in Q1. Wherever attackers can monetize their attacks will be the highest value target.
Chris Preimesberger
Brian, this cryptomining knowledge has to be spreading quickly among hackers. But don't a lot of hackers just keep doing the same old tricks they have been doing? How adventurous are they, generally?
Brian A. McHenry
The twist here is that the same old tricks are now aimed at different goals.
Brian A. McHenry
Attacks used to be for Denial of Service or stealing data. But the market for stolen data or DoS services is not as profitable as cryptomining.
Chris Preimesberger
Q5: Tell me something about new-gen security that you think we all ought to know but probably don't. Last Q of the chat.
Brian A. McHenry
A5: The proliferation of HTTPS encryption is creating almost as many problems as it solves because new-gen security tools still struggle with high-performance real-time encryption. #eweekchat
Chris Preimesberger
So, Brian, HTTPS encryption isn't cooperating with new tools coming out right now? Why do you think this is the case?
Chris Preimesberger
@TechJournalist a5 - i’m still …concerned about weaponization of meltdown/spectre attacks (Intel CPU flaws). Very difficult to detect, patching has been hard..so when/if real world attacks emerge…could be…trouble.
Brian A. McHenry
Decryption is still challenging at scale and unpredictable traffic loads. Performing decryption also has security and compliance challenges.
Chris Preimesberger
@techjournalist to @editingwhiz A3) - LACK of updates /plenty of weaknesses (ranging from lack of encryption, to default password use) make IoT an attractive target/ in terms of protections…network based stuff (where traffic is filtered via DS) can be a real help
Chris Preimesberger
From Sean Michael Kerner @techjournalist: Replying to @editingwhiz
a4 - The basic idea behind a ‘sandbox’ is to isolate running processes/ from the rest of a system. Makes a lot of sense and is a common practice across the best tools i know.. #eWEEKchat
Chris Preimesberger
We are definitely not seeing everybody on this CrowdChat channel ... I am seeing several others on the Twitterfeed only ... go to https://crowdchat.ne... for live chat. thanks
