I also checked out another weblog post on this topic by Praveen Kumar D, just now which mentions about a few promotional offers that were announced. But I could not find on the Security SSDEV page URL that I have mentioned above. The offers, as mentioned by Praveen are:

  1. The first 200 to register at the venue can walk away with a FREE copy of "The security development lifecycle" by Michael Howard (worth INR 395).
  2. Certification Discount Vouchers. The limited period Second Shot Offer provides upto 25 per cent discount on certification exams in addition to a second shot exam at no cost.

Google NCRMost of you would be knowing about this trick in navigating to Google generic website. But I just came to know only a few days before and hence thought I would share the information with others too.
Whenever you type, Google automatically tries to redirect you to your country-specific website. For me, it always redirects to (Google India). But when we specifically want to navigate to Google Generic website for some reason, there are two ways to accomplish the same.Click the 'Go to' link at the bottom of the webpage that is displayed from prevent this redundant click, you can opt to type which would prevent the redirect from happening. The NCR stands for No Country Redirect. There is a brief discussion about this NCR over this forum.You may also like to check out Google help documentation regarding the country redirections from here.

Elegant 'MailTo' Replacement

MailTo tags have become a bane to all websites since spammers run spam robots which crawl the web to capture the email addresses, add to their catalogs and send spams to them. I just thought of sharing with others a simple JavaScript function which would trigger open the default email client instead of having mailto: embedded in the HTML Page.

Just have the following function included in your webpage

<script language='Javascript'>
function WriteMailTo(user,domain)
location.replace ('mailto:'+user+'@'+domain);

And whereever you want to invoke the mailto, just called WriteMailTo('user','') and the user's default email client should be launching (if configured) without any hassles.

Elegant Encryption Routine

Elegant Encryption Routine

Securing information from prying eyes has always been a concern of a project architect. The perils waiting to prey on an unsecured information is aplenty. .NET comes with it a vast amount of rich Cryptography libraries. Now the next problem that confronts an architect is:Which algorithm to choose?What is the strength of encryption to use?In future, if algorithm or strength changes, how easy and flexible is the implementation?I have been trying out various encryption logic and then I came across a library called XCrypt from CodeProject.  I feel that this is a very good feature-rich wrapper of .NET Cryptography API. Also, there are implementations for algorithms like BlowFish, which does not have API in .NET BCL. It also comes with a rich Windows application that helps us troubleshoot encryption and decryption with specific keys in a easy way. Let us thank pdwolf for the really excellent encryption library.Free 3D Marine Aquarium Screensaver - Watch dolphins, s…
