Defending Against an Internet-Based Attack on the Physical World

Bruce Schneier also highlighted a new paper by Avi Rubin and friends: Defending Against an Internet-Based Attack on the Physical World. The authors describe how to automate the process of signing up a victim to receive thousands of catalogs and other mailings.


While visiting Avi's site, I noticed he teaches at the John Hopkins Information Security Insitute, which offers a Master of Science in Security Informatics degree. Unfortunately, it does not seem to be one of 36 universities approved by the NSA as Centers of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance. I imagine JHU is working for this certification.
