The hordes of content we consume and transmit electronically every day is a testament to our faith in the security and privacy of certain information. When submitting a search on Google or making a bank transaction, many do so assuming that personal information is protected and safe from being shared with other entities. But is this really the case? Just how protected are we from invasion into our personal data and how can we be more aware of violations of our privacy?

Susan Landau, Distinguished Engineer at Sun, recipient of the 2008 Anita Borg Institute Women of Vision Award, co-author of Privacy on the Line: the Politics of Wiretapping and Encryption, and recently named one of Fast Company's Top 5 Influential Women in Technology (in the Braniac category, no less) joins SVP Global Systems Engineering and host Hal Stern to discuss the issues of privacy, trust, and security in technology and the implications that current trends have at the business, personal, and political levels.

Out of the cloud and onto the system - Project Hydrazine

Cloud computing is one of those elusive concepts that can easily be taken for granted at times. Sure, the cloud exists; it's functioning as a network for applications, web services, and devices. But what is it really doing and how can it be leveraged in our own development projects? Enter Project Hydrazine, the "rocket fuel" behind JavaFX and the driving force behind current innovations in system administration and application development.

In this edition of Innovating@Sun, host Hal Stern, VP Global Systems Engineering, interviews Bob Brewin, VP, Sun Distinguished Engineer, to discuss Project Hydrazine--a back-end infrastructure service which offers a new and open approach to application development and deployment. With the provision of infrastructure as a service offering, one can create a virtualized environment in which systems and applications can be built and deployed as if they were in the datacenter and then easily moved across a multitude of devices. With technology like this, it is apparent that Sun's core value, "The Network is the Computer" reigns supreme in the development of Sun innovations.
