How to get HTTPS working on your local development environment in 5 minutes
"Almost any website you visit today is protected by HTTPS. If yours isn’t yet, it should be. Securing your server with HTTPS also means that you can’t send requests to this server from one that isn’t protected by HTTPS. This poses a problem for developers who use a local development environment because all of them run on http://localhost out-of-the-box."

HTTPS Anti-Vaxxers; dispelling common arguments against securing the web
"The web is moving to HTTPS, it has been for many years. We've seen an acceleration in the progress in recent months but we still have a long way to go on our journey of securing all traffic on the internet. Despite the great progress we're making, and all the valid reasons we should continue to do so, there are people that believe having a secure web is not the right thing to do."

Secret management design decisions: theory plus an example
"In this blog post I’ll discuss the design decisions that must be made while constructing a secret management automation solution. In addition I’ll share a simple utility that can be used to deploy secrets from AWS Parameter Store to an EC2 instance. This utility is based on a related blog post by AWS, but generalised to make it more useful for pretty much any application that has secrets stored in parameter store."

How to use BeyondCorp to ditch your VPN, improve security and go to the cloud
"For those that aren’t familiar with it, BeyondCorp is a security approach used by Google that allows employees to work from anywhere, quickly and easily.

This is easier said than done. In 2010, we undertook a massive project to rethink how to provide employees with secure remote access to applications: We moved away from our corporate VPN, and introduced BeyondCorp, a zero-trust network security model.

With BeyondCorp, we no longer have a binary access model, where you are either inside the whole corporate network, with all the access that allows, or outside and completely locked out of applications. Our new approach provides a better, more convenient, and less risky way: access to individual services as you need them, based on who you are and what machine you're using."

Network principles
"Government networks form a platform that enables the delivery of digital services. Good network design should create a user experience that the network is transparent, resilient and ubiquitous, with the right balance of quality, speed, security, control and cost.

These principles help designers deliver this experience for their users when designing networks across government. Note that these are principles, not a set of rules that must be arbitrarily followed. Designers can deviate from them where there is good justification."

Learning From A Year of Security Breaches
"This year (2016) I accepted as much incident response work as I could. I spent about 300 hours responding to security incidents and data breaches this year as a consultant or volunteer.

This included hands on work with an in-progress breach, or coordinating a response with victim engineering teams and incident responders.

These lessons come from my consolidated notes of those incidents."
