WTHealth. Beyond genome sequencing

ChaosZone TV
Lisette
Recorded talk will be available shortly! The medical world is improving at rapid speed - say the magic words “personalized medicine”. This talk will provide some background on the use of DNA sequencing/other kinds of sequencing/other molecules used as markers for a potential disease. There are a multitude of gene-based diagnostic tests on the market and this is only the beginning. The prospect of whole-genome sequencing for everyone is on the horizon, but what are the implications? We touch upon ethical issues regarding risk and prognosis of disease (who needs to know?) or storage and use of your personal health records and sequencing data.
As part of a company providing support to bring gene-signature based diagnostics to the market, I have full exposure to the scientific discovery, validation process and influence of multiple stakeholders in the diagnostic field. Not only are some diseases hard to diagnose without checking on a molecular level, we can also give a better prognosis or choose the right treatment for your type of condition. And who would not want to know whether they inherited some “difficult genes” from their parents? What else do your molecules tell about you and what could anyone else possibly do with that information? I’d like to bring some awareness to the audience about the potential of sequencing-based technology in health and disease and the issues it might bring along, which are of bigger concern and much closer to reality than “choosing the ideal genes for your baby”. NB: I am here as a critical individual and (computational) biologist, not as an employee.

With approaches dating back to the 20th century, the idea of a TPM is simple: An isolated, constrained environment to offload trust establishment in a larger computing environment. That implies cryptography, firmware, hardware, and per application, different requirements. This talk elaborates on how the seemingly simple concept has been expanded over the years, enumerating implementations in hardware, firmware, other layers of software, and even web browsers, explaining why it is in fact far ...

In den letzten Wochen der scheidenden Bundesregierung erhielt der Sprecher eine Mail von der Open Knowledge Foundation https://okfn.de/en/ über seine Meinung zur Open Source Sicherheit. Daraufhin erstellte er er eine Studie zum Thema Sicherheit von Open Source Projekten. Vier Projekte dienten als Beispiele und deren Hauptakteur:innen wurden befragt. Darunter "the random programmer from Nebraska" https://www.explainxkcd.com/wiki/index.php/2347:_Dependency Ariadne Connill ...

Tokens are a powerful way of controlling the access to to Rest APIs. Chasing them should be hard. Unfortunately, there is a widespread habit of leaving tokens lying around allowing very powerful attack vectors. An attack demonstrates how to hack an OpenShift cluster, which is fully securty compliant to the accepted standards of NIST and CIS. Hijacking a container gives full control to the cluster, including host access. If running in the cloud, the cluster can be used for further attacks, ...
