Good afternoon.

On the docket

The Supreme Court hears arguments on DACA. President Trump has been attempting to end the Obama program that protects young people born abroad and raised in the US without documentation. Some “Dreamers” have been waiting outside the court for days to secure a seat for the hearing, Quartz's Ephrat Livni reports.

It's raining this morning in DC but I'm not sure if that has dampened the spirits of the Dreamers who were already in line yesterday for today's hearing at SCOTUS.

  • The exposure of Suprema’s biometric data and PII is arguably one of the most serious vulnerabilities discovered. Like the OPM breach in 2015, which compromised the fingerprints of millions of US citizens, the nature of the data in this case is unprecedentedly sensitive. The value of this data for reuse

    The exposure of Suprema’s biometric data and PII is arguably one of the most serious vulnerabilities discovered. Like the OPM breach in 2015, which compromised the fingerprints of millions of US citizens, the nature of the data in this case is unprecedentedly sensitive. The value of this data for reuse is extremely high. Unlike other forms of identification, biometric data cannot be changed.

  • This is major. Biometrics were intended to be a major security improvement. But they have become a double edged sword - highly trusted because they are hard to change but spoofable now.

  • PII not encrypted when stored by a “secure” product: enough said
