I’m a regular curator of daily links, and like to give overviews of my collection of curated links and posts. This is partly as there are some good sources and articles in here and as I am working on a research project which I started based on a number of books I read.
I’m sure you’ll find something interesting in the items below – there are some gems in the list – and I dare to hazard the guess you might learn something you wanted to know. 🙂

The lack of trained and experienced computer security people working in small to medium sized businesses today means that many times this is left to the regular IT departments to solve, if there even is an IT department. In many cases this leads to vendors educating the IT department on what are best practices, this is often to the advantage of both the vendors and the company. Important to remember is that such inequality and lack of knowledge on the part of the IT department can lead to a situation that when a vendor leaves the knowledge leaves with him/her. In the end the vendor is there to sell their software.
I have always loved Identity Management, and like Access Management. I’m a little funny, I like to be identified and want my identity to be linked on different sites. Which is why I like OpenID as an identity management system, I also like the possibility of limiting the exchange of personal information to the site to are identifying yourself too. Some may require a mail address, others may only need to verify that you are authenticated to the other site. LiveJournal allows commentary to be added when using an external authentication source, but does not allow blogging without your identity.
My personal favourites are VeriSign Personal Identity Provider – it has a Firefox add-on “VeriSign’s OpenID SeatBelt” – and ClaimID – it allows attaching external links to your identity. You can examine many more of the implementations on the official OpenID site.
