Touch ID hackers attempt to take things to next level, no need for physical fingerprint | 9to5Mac: "The hacker who successfully used a fingerprint captured from an iPhone to fool Touch ID now believes it may be possible to perform the same hack without needing access to a physical fingerprint."
Anyone who has already seen a Bond film knew that.

Mac Developer: The Cocoa Distillery - How to build on 10.8 and earlier, then sign for...

The Cocoa Distillery - How to build on 10.8 and earlier, then sign for...: "The only way to obtain a v2 signature is by code signing under 10.9, but since Xcode 3 doesn’t run on anything newer than 10.6.8, I’ll have to separate the build process from the signing, packaging and submission process."
For those building under 10.6.8 for the Mac App Store or Gatekeeper.

Mac Developer: Keybase

Keybase: "Get a public key, safely, starting just with someone's social media username(s)."
Interesting solution to a problem which is probably a better foundation than Facebook authentication.

Mac Developer: PSN is coming back online, Xbox Live is up -- and that's maybe because of Kim Dotcom | GamesBeat | Games | by Jeff Grubb

PSN is coming back online, Xbox Live is up -- and that's maybe because of Kim Dotcom | GamesBeat | Games | by Jeff Grubb: "When Dotcom, who owns and operates the file-transfer website Mega, found out that he could not get online to play developer Bungie’s online shooter Destiny on Xbox One, he took to the Web to strike a deal. "
I guess that worked better than whatever the Feds had in mind.

Mac Developer: BBC News - Jeans made that will prevent 'digital pickpocketing'

BBC News - Jeans made that will prevent 'digital pickpocketing': "A pair of jeans containing material that blocks wireless signals is being developed in conjunction with anti-virus firm Norton.

The trousers are intended to stop thieves hacking into radio frequency identification (RFID) tagged passports or contactless payment cards."
Although I think these are cool, I shudder to think they are necessary.

Mac Developer: BBC News - Google considers warning internet users about data risks

BBC News - Google considers warning internet users about data risks: "Google is proposing to warn people their data is at risk every time they visit websites that do not use the 'HTTPS' system."
For years, HTTPS has been the leakiest system ever. Hey, let's encourage everyone to overuse it!

Mac Developer: Technical Note TN2206: OS X Code Signing In Depth

Technical Note TN2206: OS X Code Signing In Depth: "Checking Gatekeeper Conformance
To test Gatekeeper conformance, you must use OS X 10.9.5 or later. Follow these steps:

Package your program the way you ship it, such as in a disk image.
Download it from its website, or mail it to yourself, or send it to yourself using AirDrop or Message. This will quarantine the downloaded copy. This is necessary to trigger the Gatekeeper check as Gatekeeper only checks quarantined files the first time they're opened.

Hint: keep the downloaded .dmg around; it will stay quarantined and you can use it again and again to test.

Drag-install your app and launch it.
Observe the results.
Hint: Don't launch from inside the .dmg."
A quick guide to testing Gatekeeper conformance under 10.9.5
