I Busticated a Behemoth and Slew Kerberos

Back in July, while studying for the CISSP exam, I proposed that Kerberos (or Cerberus), the three-headed dog from Greek mythology that guards the gates of Hades, ought to be proclaimed the mascot of the CISSP exam.   I furthermore suggested that Busticating a Behemoth into manageable chunks was a good approach to CISSP exam preparation.

Well, I’m pleased to report that I did it!  I received official word this morning that my designation is official.  I can now join the ranks of fellow professionals with the acronym “CISSP” after our names.

I don’t really feel much smarter, but I am gratified to have tackled the big challenge and prevailed.

Son to Father, “Pass the ice cream, and stand back!”

That is about what I feel like right now, although I am ingesting Information Security information rather than ice cream.  If I try to stuff one more arcane detail about encryption algorithms, security models  or communications protocols into my brain, I think it will explode.

So … pass the information and stand back!

I think that Kerberos (or Cerberus), the three-headed dog from Greek mythology that guards the gates of Hades, ought to be proclaimed the mascot of the CISSP exam.  I think studying for the exam (including Kerberos, the computer network authentication protocol) is going to eat me alive.
