This week, we are focusing on security concerns for community networks. Community networks tend to be small, with limited staff to keep track of the many challenges of running a network. Our guest this week on Community Broadband Bits is Weston Hecker, Senior Systems Security Analyst and Pen Tester for KLJ.
After defining what penetration testing is, we discuss why small ISPs need to be concerned with security and some of the options available to them.
You can also see Weston talking at DEFCON about burner phones and DDOS attacks.
This is a more technical show than we ordinarily produce. For those who are confused but interested in learning more about security or just the nuts and bolts of how the Internet works, a good weekly show on this topic is Security Now. Look back in the archives for a wealth of relevant topics.
We want your feedback and suggestions for the show - please e-mail us or leave a comment below.
