Despite technical difficulties and the non-cooperation of my DSL line, Rich and I were joined by none other than Paul Asadoorian from the PauldotCom Security Weekly podcast. We thought we were doing good. Then my DSL line went down. And my backup connection sounded like crud. So we were on my cell phone to a skype account and recorded on Rich’s end. Not our preferred method of recording to be sure.

Our first topic of conversation was getting into a security career and the CISSP. Each of us have had very different paths to get to this point in our careers and we don’t expect to see a ‘one size fits all’ path into security any time soon. We talked about several interesting news articles in a bit more technical depth than usual, thanks in part to Paul’s presence. And we wrapped up with a brief discussion about the rocket ride that has been Paul’s career in podcasting.

Rich and Martin tried to make up for last week’s podcast by keeping things a little shorter tonight. The operative term of course is ‘tried'; we managed to shave a couple of minutes off the podcast, but that’s about it. Tonight’s theme was vulnerabilities in web sites, ranging from the Obama site being hacked to Dan Kaminsky’s latest DNS issues and on to PCI requirement 6.6. There was a lot going on tonight and we could have almost made a show from any one of these topics.

Rich and Martin review some of the events that went on at RSA, including Rich’s Analyst panel and Thursday morning’s ‘Avoiding the Security Groundhog Day’ panel. Neither of us were all that impressed with the showroom floor or the keynote speeches given at RSA, but we both enjoyed getting reacquainted with the security professionals we tend to only catch up with at events like this. Finally we talked about what events we’d go to in pursuit of furthering a burgeoning security career. And just in case you’re wondering where Episode 100 is, it was the live video we took last week at the Security Bloggers Meetup. Not that anyone could have missed it, given the amount we’ve been talking about it lately.

Rich and Martin take a few minutes at the end of the first real day of the RSA convention. We were both surprised at the lack of a cohesive technology or driver to the show, while we both had a lot of fun meeting friends and contacts we only meet at RSA.
