Everything You Want to Know About WebAuthn

Authentication is a sneaky problem - the most secure options don’t usually have widespread adoption, especially among consumer applications. But what if we could fix that? Narrator: we can.

WebAuthn is a somewhat new authentication standard that uses our everyday devices like phones and computers and turns them into phishing-resistant security keys. It almost sounds too good to be true. This talk will dig into how the technology works, when you can and should use it, and how to get started. We’ll dig into why this isn’t widely adopted yet and if or when we can expect it to be. You’ll walk away with a better understanding of a new authentication channel and possibly some hope for a more secure future.

Everything You Need to Know about Apache Storm

The ever-increasing growth in the production and analytics of Big Data keeps presenting new challenges, and the data scientists and programmers gracefully take it in their stride – by constantly improving the applications developed by them. One such problem was that of real-time streaming. Real-time data holds extremely high value for businesses, but it has a time-window after which it loses its value – an expiry date, if you will. If the value of this real-time data is not realised within the window, no usable information can be extracted from it. This real-time data comes in quickly and continuously, therefore the term “Streaming”.

Analytics of this real-time data can help you stay updated on what’s happening right now, such as the number of people reading your blog post, or the number of people visiting your Facebook page. Although it might sound like just a “nice-to-have” feature, in practice, It is essential. Imagine you’re a part of an Ad Agency performing real-time analytics on your ad-campaigns – that the client paid heavily for. Real-time analytics can keep you posted on how is your Ad performing in the market, how the users are responding to it, and other things of that nature. Quite an essential tool if you think of it this way, right?

Looking at the value that real-time data holds, organisations started coming up with various real-time data analytics tools. In this article, we’ll be talking about one of those – Apache Storm. We’ll look at what it is, the architecture of a typical storm application, it’s core components (also known as abstractions), and its real life-use cases.

Let’s go!

Hedgefunds don't want you to know they're being margin called and liquidated-What it means

Overview
In January 2021, retail investors on social media site Reddit’s “WallStreetBets”
subchannel (“subreddit”) collectively executed an investment strategy to induce a short squeeze
in stocks such as GameStop, AMC and KOSS, as well as other securities they identified as being
heavily shorted by hedge funds. Meaning, social media users collectively drove the stock prices
up, forcing short sellers who bet the stock price would go down, to purchase shares at an
increased price. Reddit user, Keith Gill, notoriously discussed GameStop stock on Reddit under
the username “DeepF*ckingValue.” Initially, this squeeze led to heavy losses for some short
sellers, particularly hedge funds, and led to substantial financial gain for some retail investors.
Robinhood, and other broker dealers, placed restrictions on transactions in these stocks, which
received public and regulatory scrutiny. Eventually, the stock prices started to decline and many
investors were faced with steep financial losses. For some, the January short squeeze raises
questions regarding whether legislators and regulators should take a closer look at existing rules
governing short sales and related disclosures, as well as the conflicts between the practice of
payment for order flow and firms’ best execution obligations. It also raises important questions
about the efficacy of anti-market manipulation laws and whether technology and social media
have outpaced regulation in a manner that leaves investors and the markets exposed to
unnecessary risks.
