It’s that time of the week again: the time where we take a look at what local security bloggers have been up to. As ShmooCon 2011 was this past weekend, it only proper for us to name our number three post a review of the conference since not all of us could make it. We are still doing our own little review of the conference so that would be something to look forward too in the coming days/weeks and our top two topics are very important as they can very much change the way we use the internet and we need everyone to discuss the topics.
With that, you can also take a look at what local security bloggers have been up to but if you can’t get enough of the local security scene, check out our NovaInfosec Twits list for even more great security blogs and people to follow on Twitter.
Also be sure to follow myself (@nathiet), @grecs, and @novainfosec on Twitter if you want to know more about what’s going on in the local security community during the week. Without further ado … here are the top picks for this week.
#3 –ShmooCon 2011 After-Report: We just had to put this post out for those who missed out on ShmooCon 2011 and if you didn’t miss it, here’s a time to reminisce about what to0k place at ShmooCon 2011. We are not going to be spilling any more beans on this post so click here to read the ShmooCon 2011 report yourself. If your looking for a different perspective about the con, then you can click here as Ben shares his with us.
#2 –The Internet Should Not Be Anonymous: Here is a quote from the post to give you an idea what the post is about “The news of the U.S. government’s latest attempt at a national citizen “Internet ID” brought yet another round of choruses: The Internet must be free! Any government ID plan is bad! Anonymity for all forever.” Ned Moran shares with us his thoughts on the matter. Click here to read his thought.
#1 –Net neutrality vs. the “Internet kill switch”: If you attended Firetalks during ShmooCon 2011 then you’d know a little bit about what’s being mentioned on this post. Either way, we feel it’s another important topic that everyone should chime in on as it could affect how we use the internet and Mike “theprez98” does just that and shares his opinion on the matter.

Well, that’s all this week. Be sure to check back next week for more great blog posts from local security bloggers.
