CISSP exam and new home for blog
Sorry for lack of posts last month. I was really busy at work with different projects (PKI, SC, security reviews) and tried to learn new CBK domains at home, so I basically didn't have a time to blog at all. Again, sorry. Today I had an CISSP exam (you know - 6 hours is hard ;-) after week of CBK review seminars (by Dennis Griffin) with some of Microsoft EMEA guys and other attendees at Rotenburg a.d. Fulda (and you know - it was a good choice after all, because this hotel is so far away from town ......

New Year in Sri Lanka
Better late than never. I spent this New Year and russian Orhodox Christmas at beautiful Sri Lanka (Ceylon) island. Some photos from this travel are posted on my Flickr account. Weather was really great (but unsually rainy for this time of year on the south-west side of island) - especially if you compare it with Moscow weather in January (60 degrees difference ;-). This time we visit nearly every part of this wonderful country - from Nuware Eliya to ex-capital Kandy, to Dambula, to the 8th wonder ......

Valery shared that wonderful quote from Network Security: Private Communication in a Public World last week: Humans are incapable of securely storing high-quality cryptographic keys, and they have unacceptable speed and accuracy when performing cryptographic operations. (They are also large, expensive to maintain, difficult to manage, and they pollute environment. It is astonishing that these devices continue to be manufactured and deployed. But they are sufficiently pervasive that we must design ......

Good old days
This post by Daniel Woolston reminded me about my first (well, actually second after some Soviet MC-? clone, but the first I actually work with) computer - ZX Spectrum: It didn't look like this one because it was self-made from parts available in USSR after Perestroika begins, but it shared ideas and operating system with Spectrum (it was very popular in USSR). So it was possible to play in my favourite Saboteur or Renegade games shared on cassettes =)) Those were the days =) ......

Vacation round trip
Finally, after two weeks of hard work (the main reason behind my silence on this blog), I'm leaving for vacation travel to Scandinavian countries. So, here is our itenary: Monday, arrive to Helsinki (presumably customs officials strike at Finnish border would not hurt our travel) and move to Turku Tuesday, arrive to Stockholm by Silja Europe and move to Oslo, Norway in the evening Wednesday, Sognefjord and Flaamsbana Thursday, Neroyfjord and Bergen Friday, Stavanger and Lysefjord (with fabulous Pulpit ......
