Yeah, and I'm only a little introverted and a lot arrogant! Don't throw me in a group with this highly introverted people!

comment What policies are recommended for keeping Blackberry devices secured?
AFAIK Blackberry Professional is basically a license quantity-limited version of Blackberry Enterprise Server. I'll be interested to see what comes of this question. I manage a couple of these servers, too, and I probably need to be thinking more about the device security (since they're really a kind of client computer w/ the user being an "Administrator", presumably) than I have been.

comment How to make deleted files unrecoverable?
@Brian: Absolutely true. The only sure way to make data unrecoverable is to destroy the media completely.

comment Debugging network traffic on local Windows machine
I liked it, in favor of trying to use a proxy that just dumped traffic to files, because I got the Wireshark UI "for free", rather than a raw dump of packets that I'd then have to get into a format that could be parsed.

comment WPA2 Enterprise - Validating Identity
Woah there-- I'm having an "idiot moment". If you want to accept both computer credentials and user credentials you'll need to name both "Domain Comptuers" and "Domain Users" in your policy. By default, XP will re-authenticate with the user credential after the user logs-on (there is no way to do computer-only with XP, I believe).

Bear in mind that, if you're trying to cover your nefarious tracks, that cipher and sdelete both don't wipe slack space (the space between the logical end of a file and the end of the allocation unit it was stored in).

comment How to make deleted files unrecoverable?
I don't think there's any documented API in NTFS to do that (to put a new file in a chosen MFT slot). You're going to have to resort to something that plays fast and loose with the rules. I don't think I'd trust production data to such a utility. If you're going to be into nuking filesystem metadata then even wiping all free allocation units isn't going to be good enough since there could be data leakage within the "slack" space inside allocation units used to track filesystem metadata. At that point, you're better off overwriting the entire filesystem with zeros.
