In the Boxing Ring - October 2020

 

6 October 2020 - Welcome to the October 2020 edition of ‘In the Boxing Ring’.

 

This month, we are talking about Privacy and MAC Address Randomization. A MAC (Media Access Control) address is a network address assigned to a physical device. These are used on Ethernet ports, as well as WiFi and Bluetooth endpoints, to identify your devices uniquely. In their latest operating systems, both Google and Apple use randomized MAC addresses. On pages 2 to 3, we discuss what this is and why it was done, and highlight both its positive and negative impact.

 

On page 4, we highlight the features and fixes to be released in this quarter’s Patch Tuesday for Network Box 5.

 

In other news, Network Box is excited to announce our latest revision to the E-Series hardware units. Additionally, Network Box Germany’s Dariush Ansari, together with partner IT-On.NET, has launched an IT Security podcast title HPCC Hackpod Club. And in this month’s Media Coverage, Network Box was featured in Brilliance Security Magazine, EME Outlook, China Daily, and Banking Today.

 

The newsletter can be downloaded from the Network Box website.
