Cybersecurity vulnerabilities of common seismological equipment

Seismic monitoring devices linked to the internet are vulnerable to cyberattacks that could disrupt data collection and processing, say researchers who have probed the devices for weak points. Common security issues such as non-encrypted data, insecure protocols, and poor user authentication mechanisms are among the biggest culprits that leave seismological networks open to security breaches, […]

Cybersecurity researchers build a better ‘canary trap’

During World War II, British intelligence agents planted false documents on a corpse to fool Nazi Germany into preparing for an assault on Greece. “Operation Mincemeat” was a success, and covered the actual Allied invasion of Sicily. The “canary trap” technique in espionage spreads multiple versions of false documents to conceal a secret. Canary traps […]

Cybersecurity, tech infrastructure requires international trust

In new research published in the journal Technology and Culture, Rebecca Slayton, professor of science and technology studies at Cornell University, uses the field of incident response to shed light on how experts — and nations — can more effectively combat cyberwarfare when they foster trust and transcend politics. “People often think of infrastructure as a […]
