Many see home automation as the next big thing in the consumer electronics space and D-Link is keen to plant a flag in the emerging connected smart home with its new mydlink Home range of smart devices. The line includes five modules aimed at letting homeowners control technology around the home using a smartphone or tablet, be it from the comfort of the sofa or when out and about.  Read More

Home camera systems from baby monitors to full-blown security systems are nothing new, but living with them can be about as comfortable as living in the novel 1984. Making its debut at this year’s IFA electronics show in Berlin, the Withings Home video and environmental monitoring device tries to dispel that vibe in a user-friendly package that blends into modern home decor.  Read More

With a new device set to make unbreakable, quantum-based cryptographic security available for everyone for the very first time, ordinary people will be able to use cryptographic systems that – until recently – only existed as experiments in the most advanced physics laboratories. Developed at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) the device incorporates the quantum mechanics of random photon polarization to generate random numbers and create cryptographic keys.  Read More

The Lazer Cappuccino locks the quick release buckle of a helmet strap

It's not uncommon for recreational cyclists to stop at a sidewalk cafe after a long ride, and sit outside near their bike while sipping their drink. While such situations don't necessarily call for a high-security lock, it still helps to have something that keeps thieves from just grabbing the bike and running with it. That's precisely what the Lazer Cappuccino helmet lock is intended to do.  Read More

The Yerka Project is an attempt to create the 'world's first unstealable bike'

Billed as the "world's first unstealable bike," the Yerka Project is the work of three engineering students from Chile who have figured out how to make the lock an integral part of the frame.  Read More

The X5 Security Plus is rated to VR6 for ballistic protection

Earlier this month, Mercedes revealed its S600 Guard armored car. BMW has now followed suit by using Moscow’s International Auto Salon to launch the new X5 Security Plus, an armored version of the X5 SUV designed to protect customers against "violent assault, kidnapping and organized crime."  Read More

The Noke unlocks in response to a user-specific Bluetooth signal

There are already door locks and bicycle U-locks that are activated by Bluetooth, but Utah-based FŪZ Designs claims that its Noke is the world's first Bluetooth padlock. Like its house- and bike-specific counterparts, the Noke forgoes a physical key or combination dial, and instead unlocks when it detects the Bluetooth signal from an approved user's smartphone.  Read More

The web would be a much more secure place if not for the vulnerability built right into a common coding practice: pasted-together strings of database commands (usually for either SQL queries or JavaScript-enabled user interactions), which could be exploited for malicious purposes. But computer scientists at Carnegie Mellon are developing a programming language specifically intended to protect computers and websites from such threats.  Read More

For those who want to be seen, flags and flashing lights are optional

Feeling a little paranoid about attacks from all of those pesky challengers to your authority? Perhaps you just crave a bit of extra security in your limousine? Well, Mercedes may just have the answer for you, in the form of its S600 Guard.  Read More
