Sla.ckers Comics

Just something to brighten your day if you are one of the poor schleps having to code around every possibly security contingency. It’s also the concept behind “team rubber-hose cryptanalysis” that we started at DefCon several years ago. we figured we’d sweep up the hacking contest if we just bought some base-ball bats.

Just because you have a secure system doesn’t mean the wet-ware is secure. Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

    That’s where plausible deniability comes in. You do have a different password to give under duress, don’t you? :)

    Thats also why you simply can’t trust one person to have complete access to a secure system.

    Hahah i loved it. It shows that the best way to find a password might not be to try to break in highly secured computer, but go directly to the source :P I remember that old cyberarmy game where you had to social engineer a bot, ohhhh that was a pain, but often easier than breaking in a system :)

    Reminds me of Indiana Jones.
    Guy waving the sword around, threatening, then Indiana pulls out a gun and shoots him.
