Adopt an OpenSource project today

Security Professionals - Time to save the Internet

It isn’t always nice to be proven right. This last few months has proven me more right than I ever wanted to be. You see it started with a discussion on Linkedin. Someone (who shall remain nameless) was telling everyone who would listen on that forum that OpenSource was better than commercial software for all sorts of reasons. The gentleman in question had managed to get it wrong on pretty much every level (IMHO) and had clearly never had to manage OpenSource in a large commercial organisation. I’ve had to deal with patent trolls, licencing issues, commercial code leak (into the OpenSource code) and a host of other difficulties but the issue I really had to disagree with most strongly was that OpenSource was inherently more secure that commercial software because the code was available for peer review.

I pointed out all of the reasons that was wrong, not least that having something available for review in no way makes it certain that someone qualified to review it actually will. This is particularly the case where most OpenSource projects now have so many lines of often poorly documented code that manual code analysis is pretty much impossible. Modern code review is very much an automated process run by other software looking for particular patterns, often specific to a particular language. My contention was that commercial code is far more likely to have gone through rigorous security QA checks than any OpenSource and if problems are found the correct remediation is more likely to get into the codebase of all subsequent production branches.

Shortly after this discussion the Heartbleed bug was discovered and I managed to stop myself re-joining the discussion to say I told you so! Now we have Shellshock, a potentially even more serious bug which seems likely to affect more commercial users than even Heartbleed and my guess is will be harder to patch across large commercial estates.

So what is the answer? OpenSource is so pervasive and so necessary to commercial software if this just something we will have to live with as bug after bug is discovered in OpenSource utilities, libraries and complete applications? Should the commercial world start to wean itself off OpenSource software or perhaps OpenSource should look to change its licencing model to better fund itself from commercial users?

I’m not sure that any of those options is viable or even desirable. So wat is the option? Well here I think that the Information Security community (of which I am a long time member) needs to step in. Security specialists, particularly those with a development background need to start adopting OpenSource projects. Any project worth its salt needs to think carefully about adding a security officer to its core team. Some projects like FreeBSD have already done this and now can’t imagine a world without one. I think those security officers need to leverage their contacts in the security world to beg or borrow access to automated security review tools to make their task easier. There are already some OpenSource tools out there that might form the seed of some very useful OpenSource source code review tools.

Time for the security community to step up. We have been making use of openSource tools for a while now. Time to give back

The power of Woman

by Admin 18. July 2014 15:55

I’ve just spent a week in New York, well mostly New Jersey actually as I’ve been staying in Hoboken. My son was with me this time doing work experience with a Splunk reseller called Sphere Technology Solutions. These guys are one of the fastest growing companies in the US at the moment and are focused on Data governance and control; and most unusually even in this modern day and age they have a female CEO, Rita Gurevitch who seems to be winning all sorts of awards and accolades for herself and her company. Everything from leading businesswoman in New Jersey to awards for the charitable work she and Sphere support.

Behind every successful businesswoman is always a worried man and Sphere is no exception. The power behind the throne is Bill Noonan, The senior director who holds the whole place together whilst Rita is off winning awards. As far as I can tell Bill runs most of the state and sits on every committee going. It is a wonder he has time for work!

I mention all this because this company was one of my most important partners in my Barclays days and I see them being equally indispensable to a wide range of companies not just in the New York area but increasingly further afield and even overseas. You get the distinct impression when you visit them and see them operate that you are at the start of something special. I would not be surprised if they aren’t a major global consultancy in ten years or so. I’m often quite quick to criticise a company when it lets me down and I thought it was time to reset the balance by pointing out that there are companies out there who are focused on delivering a valuable service to corporate customers and doing it with a smile on their faces which is genuine. I think that this is a woman led company is a big part of their success. Their approach is less aggressive and more aligned to problem resolution and I think these are more female traits.

Thank you Sphere for everything and I look forward to following your success.

So have we remediated Windows XP?

by Admin 3. July 2014 16:27

There has been a lot of talk about Windows XP being remediated out of our environments so I thought I’d look at the data from the Blog Website. This may not be totally representative as I get an average of just a few thousand page views per week but what I’m seeing is interesting.

As you can see from the chart and the trend line (yes of course I used Splunk to do this) There was a steady decline in the percentage of XP hits which took the proportion of Windows XP machines I was seeing down from a high of around 75% to a low of just under 5% shortly after the April deadline for support. That’s pretty much what I would have expected, but what is strange is that I’m now seeing is an upward trend which has Windows XP page viewers peaking back above 40% as of the first week in July.

Did people turn of their XP machines to see if their neighbors machines burst into flame on April 9th but gradually turn them back on as the expected disaster didn’t happen? Perhaps network and Web heads blocked XP from accessing the Web to lessen the chance that these machines would catch a cold, but relented as users complained? I’m open to hear other theories, it certainly had me intrigued. Having done a little more analysis I think I may have discovered the cause. The Windows 8 trend curve was the inverse of the XP curve. People seem to have switched to Windows 8 only to ditch it again and go back to XP. Throughout this the Windows 7 line has remained remarkable flat. It seems that a Windows 7 switch wasn't an option.

What I have noticed is that most of the XP activity I’m seeing originates from China. Perhaps the upgrade options are somewhat more limited there?

Let me know what you are seeing and what your companies are doing?

Happy New Year

by Admin 5. January 2014 18:35

Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose?

 

Well, it is a new year and the change freezes are being lifted, the new budgets are confirmed (even if you can’t actually spend them until March) and the new project priorities are being rejigged for the last time before you actually have to start delivering against them. Everything feels fresh and new and you are ready for anything; much as you were this time last year…

But this time it will be different, you can feel it! This time senior management won’t slash the budgets half way through the year. This time you won’t lose your contractors when you are forced to cut their rates to meet the new corporate rate card. And this time you won’t get all of your priorities changed by (pick one or more from the following list) the new CEO; the new CIO; the new CDO; a new CISO; Audit failures; an acquisition; a divestment; a newly discovered accounting error; a massive overspend by another team; a hideous fraud; the regulators; something else on your own personal list.

So OK, this is just another year like last year and presumably like next year. Well, enjoy it; what have you got to lose? If you are in one of the major growth areas such as Big Data for instance you management will be valuing you and your future looks secure. For some of the rest of you, perhaps this is the year to learn some new skills? Get your hands on some new technologies and make some time during your busy day COBOL programming to look up at what the rest of us are doing. Perhaps instead of making New Year’s resolutions about not drinking quite so much you should open that beer in the evening and settle down with a good PDF or eBook.

So what are the trends to look out for? Well here are some of my headline thoughts:

Big Data – Of course. Big data will start to be seen as a significant enabler technology. Mangy of the early adopters will retrench what they are doing and big companies will start having big data strategies. In particular the business will catch-on to big data and the promise it offers and things like Business Intelligence will go Big Data in a big way!

Information Security – This is an issue every year but this year will see a big reaction to Snowden as companies look again at their strategies and change technologies, move geographies and generally try to insulate themselves from the implications which Edward Sonwden’s revelations have created. Expect to see some huge hacks this year, particularly as the bad guys learn to exploit some of the weaknesses introduced by government.

The Internet of things – The rate of growth of connected things (rather than computers) has and continues to accelerate. This is creating new opportunities and in some cases wholly new sectors and those who ignore this at best won’t be part of the revolution. Many businesses still aren’t clear on the relevance of this and will spend the year doing nothing but scratching their heads.

Cloud – This is a tricky call, not least because people are waking up to the fact that the cloud just means someone else’s computers… Snowden and some of the legal judgements in the US are creating some real doubt and uncertainty and I predict that this will slow the rate of growth of Cloud based services.

Mobile – I don’t think that my daughter has ever made a call on her mobile phone. I suspect she is doesn’t realise she can. This year will see mobile move from phone to wrist to wearable to all sorts of other places. And the best thing for the vendors is that people will have multiple devices. How great when your consumer has you tablet, your phone, your watch, your glasses and your ball gown…

I realise that making predictions just sets me up for failure but I’m banking on the fact that none of you will remember this post by this time next year.

Happy New Year.

Financial Services Regulation – What’s all the fuss about?

by Admin 13. September 2013 12:05

I’m going to talk here about IT regulation rather than Basel III and capital adequacy etc. So if you are an economist you can look away now.

Having worked for several banks and still having many friends who work in IT functions in large banks I have some familiarity with the constant cycle of regulatory challenge, inspection, remediation and re-inspection. Some of my acquaintances in senior IT management positions argue that the regulators demands are unreasonable, that it somehow distracts from the business of building and running the bank and that it is a pain which must be borne, much like an occupational hazard. Some other CIO’s I have worked with, whom I respect greatly, have had the attitude of just get it done. No arguments, no complaining, it is a fact of life in a bank, just do it.

I tend to think that both of these approaches are wrong. My experience of the regulators is somewhat mixed but I tend to think that in general what they are asking for is largely reasonable and the fact that these controls are not in place or are not effective is quite a staggering indictment of a broken culture. A lot has been said about banking cultures being broken but my experience, certainly in Barclays Capital as was, is that it was full of very professional people trying to do the right thing for their customers and spending a lot of hours at work doing it. So what then am I saying?

I think that my criticism is more about the demands put on IT teams to do a vast amount in a very complex and pressured environment and to do it in a world where costs must constantly be reduced. The fact that these teams achieve what they do is a testament to their abilities. The trouble is that putting your head above the parapet and asking for extra money and time to ensure that the control environment is sound and will meet the regulators needs not just now but in the future is not likely to be popular with senior management, and asking to do that without an actual audit point to close is unthinkable; often that is the same senior management who later demand to know why they are struggling with regulatory audits.

But the IT controls are only half of the story. After SocGen had its rather unfortunate and public issues caused by Mr Kerviel some years ago I remember being made part of a task force to answer the question “Could it happen here?”.  Believe me, no senior manager wants to get the answer back, well yes, possibly not in exactly that way but in theory yes it could. Around that time I was being called about twice per day by vendors of security and compliance products all of whom told me that if only SocGen had had their product then this would not have happened to them. I suspect that my response was a little frustrating to them. I explained that SocGen had lots of controls that could have, and in some cases did detect the fraudulent behavior. The problem really wasn’t with the design of the controls; it was with both their implementation and their operation. If you are going to ignore you controls or provide simple workarounds for them then you must expect that at some stage your controls will be circumvented and you will be the victim of fraud.

So when a regulator, internal auditor or any other interested party puts pressure on your team to implement some new control framework rather than see it as a "just do it" (in banking terms JFDI) requirement or as a cost of doing business, perhaps think of what the control means. What behavior will it stop and how much could that behavior cost your organisation in the future. Throwing your support behind building strong and effective controls may actually stop you being the next organisation on the front pages of the papers. Of course measuring the negative is always hard so you may struggle to prove the return on investment for that project after the fact. If you find a good way of proving how much fraud didn't happen, let me know.

Final Word

I am of course ignoring the occasional stupidity of regulators, or at least of some of the so-called technical people who work for them. My favorite was the auditor who cause one bank to run a major project to demonstrate that there was no data loss issue from their IP phone network when the IP addresses of users was exposed to people calling into the bank! It is very hard to legislate for stupidity, but then every rule has an exception.

Careful what you complain about...

by Admin 22. July 2013 15:28

There were highs and lows being a senior manager in a bank. The lows tended to have something in common. That thing was invariably Audit.

Hearing that you were about to be audited tended to spoil a very promising month. Don’t get me wrong, this wasn’t because I feared the outcome of the audit. Oh, no; it was the process I hated. There was a time, long ago now, when audit engaged less frequently and on an altogether more scientific basis. Audit engagement would consist of very defined stages as the auditors endeavored to identify if the controls they expected were in place and effectively designed and if those controls were operating effectively. Good sound statistical methods were used to select sample sizes and then to test those samples. I complained of course, it was always frustrating to have your carefully laid plans disrupted by an unexpected audit but I was generally confident that the basis upon which we designed, built and operated controls was very sound. It was more frustration than anything… Of course I always understood that Audit was a good thing; a necessary thing. Providing oversight of the control environment was a very important and essential task and Audit did it very well for the most part.

But that was then. And then was pre the current financial crisis. Audit very much changed its approach after that and I’m still struggling to understand why. For one thing, Audit became a lot more aggressive in their approach. The scientific analysis had been replaced with threats and hostility. No longer were we looking at samples but Audit were asking my team to provide “all the data for the past year”. I was always tempted to give it to them but always gave in in the end and instead tried to explain that the data for the past year amounted to hundreds of terabytes and in what form would they like it, printed or on thousands of memory sticks? And any error in all of that data seemed to result in an audit failure. Any single mistake meant that our controls were worthless and we needed to run some huge process to replace or upgrade them. The idea of an acceptable error rate was not a subject to bring up with them!

And the other thing which changed was the politics. I can see that Audit felt that bringing in security people was a good idea when it came to auditing security systems, but I think they might have been better to have brought those people in from outside the organisation. Hiring security people who were already disillusioned with their lot in life and looking to leave the bank generated a very toxic environment, particularly after a slimming down exercise when middle managers found their departments subsumed under other teams. Dealing with an auditor who has no experience of audit, but fancies himself an expert in security is bad enough but when he has a personal ambition to pin something on you can be pretty tiresome. And trying to explain to someone who built a totally useless security control which was not well operated and which you then replaced with a much better control and good, sound operational processes that you don’t feel his audit findings are sound can be a very unsatisfactory conversation. The real shame however is that the security people lacked the sound audit skills and experience. Who would have thought that I'd miss profesional auditors but it turns out that they are much better than amateur ones!

So the question which ultimately arises is “Is this new audit methodology effective”? Well, I’m not qualified to answer that. I guess you need to look at the failings of banks over the last few years since this new regime took hold and ask whether their controls have been effective? Are Audit improving the control environment?  Have the number of scandals involving misspelling or market manipulation dropped off to nothing or do they still seem to appear in the financial and general press with alarming regularity? And are these failures identified by Audit or do we hear about them from whistle blowers, other financials, regulators and exchanges? Now let me think…

Please bring back the professional auditor who knows how to audit and has no axe to grind. I’ll never complain again, I promise!

The SIEM is dead Part Duex

Long Live the SIEM


So my last post on this subject was full of doom and gloom. All of the good reasons to have a SIEM were lying in the dust, our dreams in taters, our hope shattered. All because the technology which had been invented to solve our problems had been too limited, too stuck in the 20th century. So are we just chasing a pipe dream or is this actually possible? Let’s take a step back and remind ourselves of what it is we, as security management professionals want:

  • To be able to see the entire security context of our organization in its entirety, in real time – A big ask this one.
  • To be able correlate events together to generate real-time alerts for our security operations teams.
  • To be able to produce metrics and KRI’s (Key Risk indicators) which update in real-time.
  • Enrich our data with information about our organisations so that we don’t just see IP addresses but we see the machine name, which application and service it supports and which manager owns it. Similarly we don’t just see usernames we see who the actual person is, which department they work in and who they report to. Even when users have many different username across platforms.
  • We can go back to our historic data and ask complex questions and we don’t just get summaries of the number of times someone did something but we can see the detail and context of actual individual events.
  • The ability to build workflows within the tool or better yet interface with external tools like ServiceNow or Remedy to allow trackable actions to be initiated.


I’m sure many of you reading this can think of other things you want from a SIEM tool, but those for me are the headlines. Writing them out like this gives us an opportunity to stop blindly buying a tool which claims to give us security monitoring but to look to see what is available. And perhaps we should broaden our horizons a little and stop thinking purely of the packaged toys which our security vendors push at us.

Well having done that at Barclays the answer came in a very unexpected place. The world of Big Data has many of the same problems and the guys who work in that space are solving them in a very different way to that which security vendors are currently taking. Instead of concentrating all of the data into a data warehouse they had a distributed map reduce approach. Data was distributed across many servers and when you query it your query is broken down and distributed as well. What a very simple but very good idea. In one fell swoop the key SIEM restriction is removed. Now we can scale horizontally almost indefinitely. We can also decide on what level of performance we need and simply scale the hardware to provide it. There are also some unexpected benefits, like the data can be kept close to the source, which takes a lot of strain away from WAN. Fantastic let’s get started!

Disaster! My chief requirement is not met; Hadoop and all these big data solutions are batch driven and not real time. Bang goes my alerting in real time. And my metrics and dashboards will update periodically not in real time. I’m a security guy, I need to react NOW! Not tomorrow… Oh well, back to SIEM I guess.

Enter the hero. Splunk; yes that’s right, that isn’t a misspelling, Splunk! Splunk does everything that I need my new Big Data security solution to do but it does it in real-time. I’m back in business. At this point I have to confess that a couple of members of my team told me I should be using Splunk and I resisted that call for a very long time before actually looking at it. What a fool I was because once I saw it running in a proof of concept with my data in it I knew that I had found the Information Security Holy Grail. To be honest if Splunk had solved half of my problems I would have bought it but it solved them all and some I didn’t know that I had.

Splunk’s Schema-on-the-fly approach meant that all of my frustrations about getting data in were gone as I just sent the data to it and let Splunk worry about everything else. This removed all of my problems around throwing data away that I later needed and it also meant my team could be a lot more agile about bringing new feeds in. I also cared far less about data format changes as in most cases Splunk just coped, particularly when new fields were introduced and a complete data format change just meant a new query, nothing on the front end needed to change. Oh and the ability to correlate data… I have seldom been so happy and finding that I can do it with historic data and not just the data passing through the system in real-time meant going back to see what I had missed was easy. I also had huge flexibility in rolling data out of my system which meant I actually needed less storage than with my old SIEM solution. Oh and bringing all that context data in to enrich my queries was as simple as bring the security feed in in the first place!

But far and away the best part was the powerful search language and the ability to build dashboards and analytics on top of that. With SIEM you tend to get what you are given when it comes to analytics and reporting but with Splunk you are only limited by your imagination. And because you can easily build on top of Splunk, everyone is, which means that there are about 450 ‘Apps’ you can download which are bundles of data extractions, searches and visualisations for a whole range of technologies  and scenarios. And get this, they are distributed as source, so if you have a particular problem which is almost but not quite met, download the Apps closes to it and adapt them. Splunk even has an App to make it look like a traditional SIEM.


Splunk had all of the Big Data advantages of scalability and size with all of the real-time promise which SIEM had never quite lived-up to.  It isn’t a security specific product, despite being propelled at high speed into the top right portion of the Gartner magic quadrant for security management. Splunk is The Platform for Machine Data, which means you can do anything with it. That in itself brings some interesting opportunities, because if you are an information security manager you have a pretty powerful remit to collect data. That data has a security context but it also has other contexts, most notably Infrastructure and application management. Once you have met you own requirements why don’t you invite your colleagues in Enterprise Management over to see what they could do with that data. I’m willing to bet they will have that ah-ha moment you did and then you have a friend for life. The days of begging them for their data will be over and they will be queuing up to give you data feeds.

The more eagle-eyed of you will have spotted that having left Barclays I now work for Splunk and will be tempted to cry foul; I’m just promoting the company I work for. Those of you with a more analytical mind might be tempted to wonder why I moved from a very senior, pensioned and secure role in a global bank to a small software company. Perhaps, just perhaps it was because I saw something which was such a game changer that being part of it was more important than being the Group Head of Security Services at one of the world’s largest banks. What do you think?

The SIEM is dead

by Admin 11. July 2013 09:38

…Long live the SIEM


I accept that what I’m about to say may be controversial, particularly amongst SIEM vendors, but having designed and built one of the largest SIEM’s in the world at Barclays I feel that I have a certain leeway.

So let’s start with a very quick overview of what a SIEM is. SIEM stands for Security Information and Event manager, which really doesn’t give much away. A SIEM is supposed to collect real time events from security and other systems to enable a security operations team to react to those events and stop bad things happening. That’s the Event part of the SIEM. The Information part is about providing dashboards and analysis for management. Pretty simple eh, and it all sound useful, so what is the problem?

Why is the SIEM dead?


There are several problems with the traditional SIEM and I’ll address them one at a time.

Firstly Data Normalisation: All SIEM’s are designed pretty much in the same way. They have a collection tier which receives events from target systems and sends them on to the aggregation tier. This tier tends to require adapters to normalise the data and SIEM vendors provide a very wide variety of standard adapters or data collectors to be able to understand the data; and here-in lays the first problem. The great thing about standards is that there are so many off them. Even simple things like Web logs are variable and may be changed by web server addins and modules. My experience is that these standard adapters almost always need to be adapted themselves and that will cost time and money however you do it. The other problem with the normalization process is that it generally means throwing away some information as you squeeze the data to fit your schema. My experience with these data adapters is also that they can have a disproportionate impact of overall SIEM performance if they are badly written. Poorly constructed regular expressions can bring your SIEM to its knees and changes to data formats can leave you struggling to catch up and virtually blind for extended periods of time.

The next big problem we face is scalability: the data aggregation tier for these systems tends to be a large traditional RDBMS (database to those unfamiliar with this term). That sounds fine but it is the biggest weakness of the SIEM. When you are trying to do millions or even billions of inserts per day you soon fine that even the fastest databases can’t cope. The architecture of traditional SIEMS means this is always a bottleneck as you can’t simply create an additional database to half the load. Most of your support and admin time is spent on tending this gargantuan database and as it fills up things tend to get worse. SIEMS try to lessen this problem by writing the event data to a flat file system and simply store metadata and summary data for reports in the RDBMS. More on this later.

So the first two big problems are about getting data in. What about getting it out again? There tend to be two ways we want the data out, in alerts for the security operations team and in reports and analytics for management and other teams. The SIEM should be really good at the first because that is what they were designed to do but surprisingly they are pretty poor at this also. Alerts tend to be processed in real-time, thus missing out the database. That is a smart idea but it is limiting. To be a really effective security operations team you want two things: very good alerts with little or no false positives and lots of context information. SIEM’s really fall down on the first because their ability to analyse the incoming data is poor. Correlating events together is rudimentary at best as long time between events causes the SIEM big problems and its ability to interpret anything but simple log events is limited. Try correlating an IDS event with a Web proxy log event to get good malware alerts and you will see what I mean. Getting the context you need is also a big problem. Mixing in data from configuration management databases, vulnerability systems, HR systems and other areas is always difficult, bordering on impossible as SIEMS are just not built to handle this static data. Even when you can do this you tend to end up with lots of fragile extensions to core SIEM functionality and small changes in the schema of this static data can have major impacts on your reporting and often go unnoticed until it is too late.

I mentioned that the other requirement for getting data out was reports and analytics and this is normally the point you give up and throw your SIEM away. Why is that? Well remember I mentioned that summary data and metadata was what tended to fill up that database? SIEM’s report based upon predefined summary reports. These are defined early on in the process and are built as data passes through. If you need to change what you are reporting on you change your summarizer job and wait for it to fill-up with new data. There is no way to report in a new way on the old data as the SIEM has no way of accessing its retained data in a workable way. No one ever asks a SIEM owner what their data retention policy is because they can’t easily access that data. So inflexible reporting is a problem, but so is the report data itself. The summary reports are fine for telling you how many and who but they are completely incapable of giving you the details of each individual occasion. And I’m afraid that is exactly what your auditor, compliance officer, HR person, police officer, regulator or whoever is going to ask you for. I’m afraid you are going to spend a lot of time running grep to answer those questions. Remind me why it was you bought a SIEM?

So if the SIEM is dead what is the answer? Well I’m afraid that you are going to have to wait for part two of this blog to find out. Don’t worry though, there is an answer and it’s a good one. Stay tuned…
