Understanding Access Control Entry and Types

Access Control Entry (ACE) is data within an access control list detailing the access privileges assigned to an individual user or a collective group of users. In the Access Control Entry system, an identification (ID) distinguishes each ACE and identifies the specific individual or group of subjects. Each access control entry includes: An Access Control List (ACL) is similar to an organized list of rules that determine who can do what.

How to Use the Terraform Destroy Command to Control Cyber Attack Damage

In many cases, cutting something off is necessary to avoid bigger damage. This is the idea behind controlled infrastructure removal, the elimination of some parts of your cloud infrastructure to contain an attack or remove a potential attack surface. It is an important part of infrastructure-as-code (IaC) management and something organizations need to be familiar with as they secure their cloud environments and the apps they develop.

Blue Green Deployment vs Canary

A buggy rollout or, even worse, a security breach can lead to user frustration, lost trust, and damaged reputation. To keep users happy and your brand protected, you need a robust deployment strategy that balances seamless updates with ironclad security. 32% of customers abandon a brand they love after just one negative interaction. For software teams, this means that every update is a high-stakes moment. Can we ensure both a positive user experience and robust protection during every rollout?

Teleport Workload Identity with SPIFFE: Achieving Zero Trust in Modern Infrastructure

Teleport Access Platform generates cryptographic identity for users, machines, devices, and resources, creating a single source of truth for what users and machines are accessing what in your modern infrastructure. Now, engineers will be able to generate identity specific to workloads and services, enabling your full modern infrastructure stack to operate with zero trust authentication.

Comparing OPA/Rego to AWS Cedar and Google Zanzibar

Rego, the policy language of the Open Policy Agent (OPA), is known for its flexibility and power in policy enforcement across various systems. Its declarative syntax and data-centric approach make it versatile for application authorization, infrastructure as code (IaC) authorization, and network policies. To fully appreciate OPA/Rego’s capabilities, it’s helpful to compare it with other policy languages and frameworks like AWS’s Cedar and Google’s Zanzibar.

How to Extract Content from VMDK Files

Virtualization technology has revolutionized the IT landscape, enabling businesses to optimize their infrastructure and improve the flexibility of their systems. One of the key components in virtual environments is the Virtual Machine Disk (VMDK) file format, developed by VMware. Extracting content from VMDK files can be crucial for system management and data recovery. This article explores the nature of VMDK files, reasons for extracting their contents, and various methods to achieve this, including the use of DiskInternals VMFS Recovery.

Windows 11 Boosts Security: NTLM Out, Kerberos In

Microsoft’s initiative to phase out NTLM authentication in favor of the more secure Kerberos protocol was originally announced back in October 2023. At that time, the Windows maker declared its intention to deprecate NTLM and encourage organizations to transition to Kerberos for authentication purposes across its ecosystem. Microsoft announced this week that later this year they are expecting to retire NTLM authentication in Windows 11.

User Account Control Settings Hardening Guide (2024)

User Account Control (UAC) serves as a security feature in Windows, aiming to safeguard the operating system from unauthorized modifications. Whenever alterations demand administrator-level permissions, UAC prompts the user, allowing them to either authorize or reject the requested change. User Account Control (UAC) provides several benefits, especially in maintaining security and minimizing risks associated with administrative privilege.
