At the moment I am working on a number of things. I am working on a few GIAC Certifications.
I have signed up for the CSSP-C and GCMP exams. On top of this I am renewing my GCFA certification (it is coming up on 4 years soon).
These are the following:
- GSSP-C - GIAC Secure Software Programmer - C
- GCMP - GIAC Certified Project Manager Certification
- GCFA - GIAC Certified Forensics Analyst
The GSSP-C is a little more work. I have been reviewing "The CERT C Secure Coding Standard" by Robert Seacord (Addison-Wesley, October 2008.). This is an excellent book if a little dry. It is not the easiest read and packs a lot into its covers.
I am starting another masters degree (as I have posted) soon. I would like to sit the secure coding exam in C before I start with a course that is primarily focused on C#. I also plan to sit the GSSP-J secure Java coding exam in 2009.
On top of this, I have my GCUX Gold paper to complete before the end of the year. It is on the way, but messy at the moment. I have the 100 Unix commands, but there is a great deal more I would like to add.
On top of this I present my (and the other's *) paper on disk wipes and recovery at ICISS08 in a couple weeks.
Well, back to the millstone.
* The paper and the others are "Overwriting Hard Drive Data: The Great Wiping Controversy" by Craig Wright, Dave Kleiman and Shyaam Sundhar R.S..
