A Week in WhiteHat

IU redressing has been around for years, but it didn’t get the name “clickjacking” until Jeremiah Grossman and Robert Hansen of WhiteHat Security coined the term in 2008.

If you’ve been reading this blog regularly over the past few weeks, then you have probably figured out that internet security experts owe a lot to Grossman, not only for giving UI redressing a more customer-friendly name, but also for creating a force within the industry to protect web sites, organizations, and individuals from clickjack attacks.

Grossman has become spokesman for internet security, and he’s the go-to guy when industry specialists want information on clickjacking. In honor of Grossman’s efforts, I’ll be posting articles throughout the week that focus on his and WhiteHat Securities.

We often get bogged down in the technical details of internet security. The truth of the matter, though, is that the vast majority of professionals rely on the skills of a few geniuses to keep them ahead of cybercriminals. Grossman is one of those geniuses.

Instead of focusing on the technical details of clickjacking attacks, malware, and other security issues, this week’s articles will provide brief lessons in history and security philosophy. This will be a chance for us to learn about some of the most respected security specialists in the world, and will hopefully offer some important lessons that we can all apply to our internet use, regardless of whether we are laymen who just want to browse web sites safely or we are professionals interested in exploring the latest security technologies.
