In other news, I’m heading back to Europe in a few days from now so am doing the last-minute rush tying up loose ends here, finishing presentations and just generally preparing myself for what will be another hectic few weeks. I also killed off the non-anonymous endpoints of Pwned Passwords today so it’s k-anonymity all the way now. Plus, in this week’s blog posts, the Spanish government comes on board HIBP and I write about some really cool large-scale use cases of Pwned Passwords. Oh – and I took a bit of an ethical stance on a sponsor, that’s worth listening to if you’re interested in how I choose who appears on the bar at the top of this page. Next week, I’ll come to you from London, see you then!
- All Pwned Passwords API endpoints that didn’t ensure anonymity are now gone! (that’s a link to the original blog post on why I was doing it)
- The Spanish gov is now using HIBP to identify breaches impacting gov email addresses (they join the UK and Australia, with more govs to come yet)
- There’s same awesome real world use cases of Pwned Passwords now (check out 1Password, EVE Online, Kogan and Okta, among others)
- Varonis is sponsoring my blog this week (a last-minute substitution, but an organisation I’ve got a lot of respect for)
