The guys at the Tripwire State of Security blogger recently asked a bunch of infosec luminaries (and me) what our infosecurity superpower would be if Grace Hopper waved her magic wand and granted us a wish.
Here’s what I said:
“Everyone who works in computer security is already a superhero, of course. It’s just that they normally don’t feel brave enough to wear their underpants on the outside.
“My super power would be extrasignum complexitus. Through remote mind mesmerism, I would be able to look at any person about to sign up for a website and inject extended characters and symbols into their fingertips.
“That or hypnotize them into naming their pet cat ‘Rif2caiLd2Or3uG4’.”
Thanks again to the Tripwire guys for asking me to join in the fun.
