Devices capable of recognizing human gestures via WiFi in development

http://s01.s3c.es/imag/_v0/225x250/8/0/a/wifi.JPGResearchers have developed a system capable of detecting and recognizing human gestures using WiFi signals. Unlike systems based in visual gesture recognition, like Kinect, systems with this new technology will allow the user to control several different appliances and devices, such as a TV, a refrigerator or a video game console, simply with a hand gesture from anywhere in the house.

Gesture recognition systems have truly been a revolution in the entertainment industry. These kinds of systems, such as Microsoft’s Kinect, allow the user to play video games without a controller, since the player’s body acts as one. Now, with Microsoft’s new console, the Xbox One, Kinect will play a much bigger role, since it’s not only used for video games, but it can also control the console’s different apps, like the TV.

Do you suspect wifi theft? Learn to block your ‘router’

According to a study published by the National Institute of Communication Technologies (Inteco), almost 12 percent of Spanish Internet users take advantage of the wireless networks of another individual. The trend is increasing: the rate increased from 6.9% in 2009 to 8.7% used in 2010. However, there are still many users who do not take measures to protect their networks.

Although it’s now relatively easy to access wifi passwords, the truth is that it is an offense under the Criminal Code, in particular Articles 255 and 256, which speak of electric fluid frauds and the like. According to Carlos Sanchez Almeida, an expert lawyer on computer crime, “in the case in which the fraud does not reach 400 Euros, it is not a crime, but a failure. The problem is to break the passwords and access to a private network could be a crime of divulging secrets, as defined in article 197 of the CP. And in that case sentences range from 1-4 years in prison. “

Cisco Joins Arbor Networks to Fight DDoS Attacks

If 2012 was the year when security became the trending topic in the industry, DDoS attacks were the most recurrent message. In that sense, the denial of service attacks has become especially popular thanks to the many actions taken by hackactivista groups like Anonymous.

To better protect companies against such attacks (mainly consisting of increased traffic unsustainable for the system), Cisco has established a new partnership with Arbor Networks to incorporate its technology in the company’s routers.

With these solutions, the Cisco Carrier Routing System can detect threats in traffic portals automatically, otherwise work should be done by a separate computer connected to the router.
Thus Cisco has licensed the Peakflow SP Threat Management System for the module Arbor Cisco Carrier Grade Services Engine (GCGSE) of class CRS​​-1 routers. Arbor already has a similar agreement with Alcatel-Lucent and its router 7750SR.

Although exact details are not known, Arbor Networks confirms that it is possible that routers equipped with its technology will be more expensive than buying a router and anti-DDoS system separately. However, it is expected to improve bandwidth and integrated traffic, offsetting this premium medium term.
Cisco and Arbor have had a long historical relationship, both cooperative and competitive. More than a decade ago, Cisco was an early investor in Arbor. Over the years, Cisco developed its own anti-DDoS technology, and began establishing relationships with third parties in 2010, as with Arbor.
