Apple grabs icloud.net domain to solidify links to sync and storage service

Apple this week took administrative control of the icloud.net domain, the last notable web address it did not govern that users could have linked with its online sync and storage service.

According to WHOIS searches today, Apple acquired control of icloud.net on Tuesday.

Apple already ruled the primary top-level domains for iCloud, the cross-device, cross-OS service that stores files generated by iOS and macOS, and more importantly, synchronizes everything from Safari browser bookmarks to photographs between iPhones, iPads and Macs. Apple is on record as the owner of the domains icloud.com, icloud.org, icloud.us and icloud.eu, for example.

Google Cloud Platform finally offers key management service

Google is finally giving administrators the ability to manage their encryption keys in Google Cloud Platform (GCP) with its Cloud Key Management Service (KMS). Google is the last of the three major cloud providers to provide the key management service, as Amazon and Microsoft already have similar offerings.

The Cloud KMS, currently in beta, helps administrators manage the encryption keys for their organization without having to maintain an on-premise key management system or deploy hardware security modules. With Cloud KMS, administrators can manage all the organization’s encryption keys, not only the ones used to protect data in GCP.

Administrators can create, use, rotate, and destroy AES-256 symmetric encryption keys via the Cloud KMS API. Multiple versions of a key can be active at any time for decryption, but only one primary key version can be used for encrypting new data. The rotation schedule can be defined to automatically generate a new key version at fixed time intervals. There’s also a built-in 24-hour delay when trying to destroy keys to prevent accidental or malicious loss. Cloud KMS integrates with GCP’s Cloud Identity Access Management and Cloud Audit Logging services so that administrators can manage permissions for individual keys and monitor usage.

VPN provider cuts of service to Russia after servers seized

Private Internet Access, a provider of virtual private network services, has shut down its Russian gateways and won’t do business in the region any longer, as it believes that some of its Russian servers were seized by the government for not following new internet surveillance rules.

The provider, which holds that it does not log traffic or session data, said it had likely fallen foul of new Russian rules that require that providers must log local traffic for up to a year.

“We believe that due to the enforcement regime surrounding this new law, some of our Russian Servers (RU) were recently seized by Russian Authorities, without notice or any type of due process,” the provider’s team said in a blog post Monday.

BrandPost: The Advantages of Infrastructure and Platform as a Service

It’s probably on your to-do list to design a go-forward strategy for your Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) deployment. But it’s probably behind the 103 other things also on that list. At PC Connection, our experts will tell you that IaaS is the true foundation for shifting your infrastructure to a cloud computing platform. So how do you get started on the path to IaaS? Read on to learn more.

Many organizations want to free themselves from maintaining at least some of their IT infrastructure. Owning and maintaining a data center has physical and security requirements that are becoming increasingly complex to deliver. At the physical level, you need to maintain servers and storage arrays, as well as power sources, backup power supplies, and generators—not to mention enabling your business continuity plan. Additionally, IT executives are now obligated to take more ownership for compliance regulations like HIPAA and PCI that add additional demands to an already full IT agenda.

Salesforce brings cross-channel service a step closer with new ‘Snap-ins’

You can’t always bring customers to your best customer-service tools, but now you can bring those tools to them thanks to a new addition announced Wednesday for Salesforce’s Service Cloud.

Dubbed Service Cloud Lightning Snap-ins, the new offering allows organizations of any size to take key support features from Salesforce’s Service Cloud and “drop” them into their websites or mobile apps. Case-management and live-chat capabilities can now be added to mobile and Web apps, for example, and a tap-to-call feature is available for Android and iOS.

A new module enabling two-way video chat, meanwhile, allows customers and agents to see each other. A customer could also use a smartphone’s front-facing camera to show the agent the problem at hand.
