IP Security Cameras for home use

Home Security Camera Filter: I'm looking for a wireless camera that can transmit over my existing 802.11g network. Ideally, it would have motion detection and the ability to record to the web rather than just my hard-drive. Where to look? What to Buy? Personal Experiences? [more inside]

Security Camera needed

Several laptops and projectors were stolen at my workplace this weekend so I'm looking for a simple security camera that will record on my PC when it detects motion. I have looked at but that seems much too complex and it seems to only be able to record to VCR. Anyone have experience with a cheap/easy solution?

Home vs. university computer security

Computer security question. Is a typical home PC, when it's connected to the net via a cable to a DSL modem, any more or less secure against intrusions than if the same computer were plugged into the network on the campus of a typical, large American university? Say, for example, a UC campus.

An endless-video recording digicam?

Does this device exist, and if not, how can I modify cheap consumer digicams to create it: A cheap portable digicam that will endlessly record video to some kind of small memory buffer, say enough memory for 1 minute of video, such that I could leave it running for days on the off-chance of it recording something interesting, and when something interesting happened, I just press a "Stop Recording" button, and the last 60 seconds of video are sitting in memory.

How can I keep my plaintext data from leaking?

I'm writing some personal wiki software that I want to make as secure as possible. Think wiki software in the footsteps of Tinfoil Hat Linux. The software is intended to run as a CGI Perl script though Apache on the local machine, with data stored in encrypted XML files that will be decrypted for display by the Crypt::GPG module. So the question is, where could plaintext data escape to? More inside... [more inside]

How to stop my crazy family from downloading destructive software?

My computer illiterate family has an HP box running Windows XP Home SP 2. They are constantly installing random programs from suspicious websites and allowing nefarious Active X controls to run – often leaving a trail of destruction for me to deal with. Is there an easy way to restrict their ability to install software? (Also - was I dreaming or did Microsoft just release some kind of policy editing tool that deals with this kind of problem?)

Let's say I wanted to create a simple web app to store my various usernames and passwords. The app and database would be hosted externally (by Dreamhost). I would use a secure connection for any HTTP stuff going back and forth, and I would encrypt all of the passwords before going into the db, and I can only extract and decrypt a password after entering a pass phrase that exists only in my brain.

How do I convert an Army certificate into a format OS X understands?

Army Knowledge Online is a webmail/pop email service that any current or former US Army member can use in order to have a .mil address. I've been using it for a while, but for going on three years now I can't get (and the keychain) to accept its security certificate. The normal way of importing a self-signed certificate doesn't work under Jaguar, Panther, or Tiger- I can import the cert, but nothing happens. I've tried setting up a new "root" certificate. Nothing works. Apple discussion boards have been useless. Can someone look at this certificate (try going here and it will send you the cert) and maybe tell me what's going on? I think it's in some odd format that prevents it from being imported.

Security vs. insecurity

I recently purchased my first home. It's in a neighborhood that used to be a little sketchy (Seattle's Rainier Beach), but is now relatively safe.

Removing security tags

So I bought a shirt today, and they forgot to remove the security tag. Had I known that it wasn't going to beep, I'd never have thrown down the Visa. Why buy what you can steal? Anyway, short of returning to the store, how can I remove the tag at home. I have all the basic tools a homeowner needs. It is not the kind of tag that sprays inks should the procedure go bad. Anyone larcenous members, or those that have retail experience care to detail a procedure.

The back of my house faces an alley. There is no fence or gate. Someone loves to take my hanging flower baskets or even vegetables from my garden boxes.
