Cryptography Research put a Q&A online that answers questions around the hash collision attacks that were announced at the CRYPTO 2004 conference (way back in '97 I attended too, wow, the rump sessions were really cool).

If you happen to be a MSDN subscriber, then the Beta 1 Refresh has landed for you in the download section - including Team System! Be sure to read Rob Caron's post on what is definitely needed (installed), and what you might want to download too.

Authentication and Access Control Diagnostics 1.0 (more commonly known as AuthDiag) is a tool released by Microsoft aimed at aiding IT professionals and developers at more effectively finding the source of authentication and authorization failures.

AuthDiag 1.0 offers a robust tool that offers a efficient method for troubleshooting authentication on IIS 5.x and 6.0. It will analyze metabase configuration and system-wide policies and warn users of possible points of failure and guide them to resolving the problem. AuthDiag 1.0 also includes a robust monitoring tool called AuthMon designed at capturing a snapshot of the problem while it occurs in real-time. AuthMon is robust and specially designed for IIS servers removing any information not pertinent to the authentication or authorization process.

NeoWin is running an interview with Bruce Schneier, author of books such as Applied Cryptography or the monthly Crypto-Gram newsletter. His answers are interesting as always, I especially liked the ones to the questions "What do you see as the biggest threat in the IT age?" and "Who would you say should bear the burden of responsibility for security?"

C5 is a library of generic collection classes for the upcoming version 2.0 of the .Net platform. C5 extends the standard .Net System.Collections.Generic namespace with tree data structures, heap based priority queues and hash indexed array lists and linked lists, making it more comprehensive than most collection class libraries on similar platforms. Unlike many other collection class libraries, C5 is designed with a strict policy of supporting "code to interface not implementation".

Now that definitely looks worth checking out!

The book The .NET Developer's Guide to Windows Security is available for online reading in Keith Brown's wiki. It answers seventy-five questions, of which a .NET programmer better be able to answer quite a few of them! So be sure to check it and bookmark the page for your future programming endeavors.

Yesterday evening we (a few ASP Insiders) were chatting at dinner about various topics, and one was administration war stories of IIS. That was no surprise with Scott Forsyth at the table, and about half the guys hosting at OrcsWeb.

He mentioned WMIC (Windows Management Instrumentation Command-line), which comes with both XP and 2003. It is a command-line and scripting interface that simplifies the use of Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) and systems managed through WMI. Too bad that I didn't stumble across it any earlier.

So I have googled for a few very useful links to get myself and everybody else up to speed and going:

Shanku Niyogi, ASP.NET Group Program Manager posted a blog entry on Upcoming Changes to ASP.NET 2.0 in Beta 2. Now, any further questions why I keep trying to convince people not to start production projects on a non-feature freeze Beta version?

Finally got my hands on Dino Esposito's book Introducing Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0. The term "finally" has a special meaning for me: I was the technical editor on this book, and quite a lot of work went into this book project, because writing such a book isn't done in a day, and ASP.NET 2.0 was/is a moving target. So even with the most stringent editing, there inevitably will be some "mistakes" caused by changes.

In the Acknowledgements, Dino writes "Christoph Wille, who reviewed the contents from a technical perspective, was one of the most attentive and insightful reviewers I have ever had (and I have written quite a few books)." He has a gift for words - a royal pain in the posterior would be the tagline I'd choose for myself.
