The real threat to our elections: Disinformation and doubt

Security through obscurity has been trumped. Let’s hear it for security through “clunky.”

In an attempt to assuage concerns that Russian hackers might succeed in hijacking U.S. presidential election results, FBI Director James Comey said recently that “the beauty of the American voting system is that it is dispersed among the 50 states, and it is clunky as heck.”

Comey has proven himself a master of clunky statements and often appears baffled by technology. One story about his misinformed campaign against encryption was summed up in the URL slug: “FBI Dude Dumb Dumb.” In addition to his incessant rants about terrorists “going dark,” Comey infamously dismissed constitutional protections against illegal searches, calling them a “typo” in the law. Then there was his over-the-top bluster about how only Apple was capable of breaking into a terrorist’s iPhone — right up until the moment the phone was cracked without Apple’s help.

New Google API cryptographically secures Chromebooks

Google is making it possible for enterprises to cryptographically validate Chrome OS devices before letting them connect to secure networks with its new Verified Access for Chrome OS.

With Verified Access, network services — VPN gateways, sensitive servers, an enterprise certificate authority, enterprise Wi-Fi access points — can get a hardware-backed cryptographic guarantee from the client machine that it has not been compromised and the user is who he or she claims to be.

Verified Access uses the Trusted Platform Module chip present on all Chrome OS devices to confirm the device is unmodified and complies with existing security policies. The network service uses that information to determine what level of access the device gets to sensitive corporate systems and applications.
