This time, the contributors will discuss various aspects of information security.

“The more we depend on the digital world, the more serious consequences its disrupted functions entail. The greater interdependence of our systems vastly increases our ‘surface of attack,’ and more accessible data makes it harder to ensure confidentiality. In other words, information security is extremely important, and the efforts to ensure it are hardly a trivial task,” the magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Andrei Robachevsky wrote in his introductory message.

In the first article, Konstantin Chumachenko will discuss the security and safety of corporate web apps, and he will cover whether cloud platforms can help control information security risks. Jeff Houston will talk about revoking certificates and will eventually reach a pessimistic conclusion.

Natalia Konnova will share the authentication capabilities of biometry and will warn against possible problems. In turn, Muslim Mejlumov will offer practical recommendations for using a relatively new user authentication technology (DNS via the HTTPS and DoH protocol). David Strom will inquire whether it is appropriate to pay attention to the secondary market when there is a shortage of IPv4 addresses and the possible consequences of this policy.

In his traditional column, Science and Technology News, Pavel Khramtsov will discuss privacy, safety, security and other subjects of interest. Domain Industry News shows how to keep Russia’s domain space safe and sound.

The magazine’s editorial office discusses the infinite information security issue time and again, always finding new topics and interesting twists in the development of this sector.
