A camera in the security lines at Dallas Love Field is scanning every passerby for elevated temperatures, in a test by the airport and Southwest Airlines to find out if it can detect sick people before they board flights.
In the back hallways, employees are getting temperature checks at kiosks before they start work each day, trying to keep sick employees out of the airport, too.
As airlines, companies and governments scramble to reopen a battered economy facing the eighth month of a worldwide pandemic, airports are now the frontline for evolving thermal imaging technologies designed to pick out infected travelers before they can spread COVID-19 further.
Temperature scanning device makers such as Dallas-based Wello Inc. and Beaumont’s Infared Cameras Inc. have suddenly been inundated with requests for their technology. Even small restaurants, hotels and schools are asking about it.
“It’s not just convention centers and airlines,” said Gary Strahan,
Hotels, pubs, and restaurants across Australia are pulling back punters, but losing time to typing. Track and trace regulations require establishments to register information on each guest, causing delays for many patrons, while others are deliberately falsifying their data.
Tackling these issues, Austrian technology firm Anyline has launched software to scan Australian driving licenses and passports on any smartphone. This technology give hospitality personnel a quick and contactless way to gather the data needed from each guest on entry. In contrast to QR code systems, guests do not need to type in their information themselves, meaning incorrect data cannot be entered.
“The hospitality industry is caught between a rock and a hard place: fighting every day to protect jobs and welcome back guests while doing all in their power to ensure safety,” said Anyline CEO Lukas Kinigadner. “But when the staff has a quick and contactless
GitHub is officially launching a new code-scanning tool today, designed to help developers identify vulnerabilities in their code before it’s deployed to the public.
The new feature is the result of an acquisition last year when GitHub snapped up San Francisco-based code analysis platform Semmle; the Microsoft-owned code-hosting platform revealed at the time that it would make Semmle’s CodeQL analysis engine available natively across all open source and enterprise repositories. After several months in beta, code scanning is now rolling out to all developers.
It’s estimated that some 60% of security breaches involve unpatched vulnerabilities. Moreover, 99% of all software projects are believed to contain at least one open source component, meaning that dodgy code can have a significant knock-on impact for many companies.
Typically, fixing vulnerabilities requires a researcher to first find the vulnerability and disclose it to the repository maintainer, who fixes the issue and alerts the
Amazon already got rid of checkout lines at its brick-and-mortar Amazon Go stores. Now, it wants to make getting into those stores easier too. Starting Tuesday, the retail giant will let people use its latest biometric tech — dubbed Amazon One — to enter two Amazon Go locations in Seattle.
“Amazon One is a fast, convenient, contactless way for people to use their palm to make everyday activities like paying at a store, presenting a loyalty card, entering a location like a stadium, or badging into work more effortless,” Dilip Kumar, Amazon’s vice president of physical retail and technology, said Tuesday in a blog post. “The service is designed to be highly secure and uses custom-built algorithms and hardware to create a person’s unique palm signature.”

Sysdig also adds threat detection using AWS CloudTrail with open source Falco
Sysdig, Inc., the secure DevOps leader, today announced automated inline image scanning for AWS Fargate containers, directly in Amazon Elastic Container Registry (ECR). Sysdig is the first container and Kubernetes security platform to offer inline scanning for Fargate, which doesn’t require customers to share images or registry credentials outside of their Amazon Web Services (AWS) environment. Sysdig also announced the addition of threat detection using AWS CloudTrail with Falco, the runtime security tool created by Sysdig, and now a CNCF project. The announcement today focuses on closing the visibility and security gap for organizations running on AWS, including in serverless environments like Fargate. The Sysdig Secure DevOps Platform is based on open source technologies. By marrying rich data with context, Sysdig provides deep visibility to organizations looking to embed security, validate compliance, and maximize availability across their entire
New technology announced Tuesday by Amazon that allows the palm of a user’s hand to double as a credit card or company ID could find its way into use in office buildings and sports stadiums, according to the e-commerce giant, which said it chose the palm technology because it’s “more private” than other biometric markers as consumers continue to have concerns over data privacy and big tech.
The technology, called Amazon One, uses custom-built algorithms and hardware to create a person’s unique “palm signature,” allowing for everything from making credit card or loyalty card purchases to entering a location like a stadium, or badging
