I feel like we discussed this topic before, but yes, we talk about coffee. Since security news is sparse right now, we take a sidebar on a topic that is near and dear to our heart.

Security 243 – Contact Tracing

We talk about Google’s and Apple’s Contact Tracing endeavors. While I’m okay with it, Tom rips it to shreds, based on the obvious privacy issues and false positives.

I know I messed up the intro.

Security 242- Ubiquiti’s Dream Machine

I decided to relearn everything about networking, and got myself a Ubiquiti Dream Machine. I share my experiences.

I really do like it. There are a ton of features, I didn’t know I needed. However, there are some quirks, like non standard feature naming practices.

Security 241 – Bitwarden

Bitwarden is a “new to us” password manager. We discuss it, and recommend the software. We still recommend LastPass as well, however, if you want a better free option, and cheaper premium options, Bitwarden is worth a look.

Chaim dives into the tech support implementation for friends and family. The design makes it easy to navigate. It was easy to switch, and I feel comfortable troubleshooting it from afar.

Tom went into the deep end with the self hosting aspect. He has some issues on how self hosting should not command a premium subscription, but overall he gives it a thumbs up.
