How to Decode TLV Quickly

In TLV, the format is Tag, Length, and Value. The TLV protocol needs this type of data. Here you will know how to decode TLV data. According to IBM , TLV data is three parts. The tag tells what type of data it is. The length field denotes the length of the value. The Value-field denotes the actual value. Structure of TLV. TLV comprises three field values.  Tag Length Value EMV formulated different tags. They have their meanings. Usually, the Tag and Length together takes 1 to 4 bytes. The Best example for TLV. In the below example, you can find the sample TAG, LENGTH, and VALUE fields. [Tag][Value Length][Value] (ex. " 9F4005F000F0A001 ") where Tag Name =  9F40 Value Length (in bytes) =  05  Value (Hex representation of bytes. Example, "F0" – 1-byte) =  F000F0A001 In the above message, tag 9F40 has some meaning designed by EMV company. Here  you can find a list of EMV Tags. How to read the TLV Tag: 1 or 2 bytes Length: Length of the Value. F0-00-F0-A0-01 ==> 5 By

The biggest threat to cloud security

[Cloud Security]
The biggest threat to cloud security among IT is the company’s employees unintentionally exposing data, according to the latest research figures from CloudEntr.
The study, which took 438 survey responses from industries including financial and manufacturing, found three quarters (75%) of smaller businesses are most worried about their workforce when it comes to securing data in the cloud. Larger IT firms were more concerned about hackers using employee credentials to get their hands on data.
Not surprisingly, regulated institutions were more concerned about cloud compliance than non-regulated, but 75% also said their biggest tool in becoming more secure was employee education.
It’s not just employee education, but shadow IT which continues to be a problem. 29% of those polled said they had no plans to use the cloud in their organisations, but of that number, nearly half of IT pros said they knew of employees who were using it. The vast majority (89%) of IT pros questioned said they were concerned with cloud security, and security (63%) was more important than convenience in a cloud solution.
There have been various vulnerabilities and outages in recent days,from Docker’s vulnerability recorded earlier this week, to Microsoft Azure’s downtime from a bug which slipped the testing process. Dejan Lukan, writing for CloudTech earlier this week, noted data breaches and data loss as some of the most serious threats to organisations, as well as a lack of understanding.

“Enterprises are adopting cloud services in everyday operations, but it’s often the case they don’t really understand what they are getting into,” he wrote. “When moving to the cloud there are different aspects we need to address. If the [cloud service provider] doesn’t provide additional backup of the data, but the customer expects it, who will be responsible when the hard drive fails? The customer will blame the CSP, but in reality it’s the customer’s fault, since they didn’t familiarise themselves enough with the cloud service operations.”
