SPF: security for your email

To protect your email from cyber attacks, you must be able to identify the sender. This is where a security feature known as SPF comes into play.

In this article we will explain what it is and why you should care about it. Let us begin:

What is SPF?

The Sender Policy Framework is an email security protocol that allows the identity of senders to be verified.

This is divided into two parts:

A  DNS TXT/SPF record : which indicates which servers are authorized to send emails from a given domain.

The  ​SPF check ​: is the verification that is done on receiving a message and that checks if the server that has sent the message is indeed the one that the DNS record marks as authorized.

Therefore, the configuration of the DNS TXT/SPF record allows  sending mail  to be correctly signed , while the  SPF check consists of discriminating  received mail . 

How does SPF work ?

The SPF check checks that the sending server is authorized to send mail on behalf of the domain.

It works at various levels, based on the DNS TXT/SPF record:

1.- Verify that the sender IP is authorized to send emails with said domain.
2.- Verify the  email enveloper sender field  matches the expected value.
3.- Verify by means of the helo/ehlo command the valid response from the server that sends the mail.

If the set of checks does not match, the email is blocked. All received emails have a header added with the result of the SPF analysis.

Now, how do we find out the IP addresses of the sender’s email server? We do this by checking the SPF record of the sender’s domain name.

SPF record

In  cdmon  this default log looks like this:

v=spf1 include:_spf.srv.cat ~all

At first glance, this does not seem to include any IP addresses, but if we analyze it with a specialized tool, it indicates the IPs from which a  cdmon user  can send messages:

This means that if a  cdmon user  works with the default SPF record, they will be able to send messages from any of these IPs:

46.16.56.0/21
134.0.8.0/21
185.22.200.0/22
​​185.34.192.0/22
​​185.42.104.0/22
​​185.66.40.0/22

In case of working with more than one mail service (such as a mailing service such as Acumba or Mailchimp), it will be necessary to add their servers as authorized hosts for sending.

Remember that you can only have a single SPF record, so if you have to make this change, we recommend that you follow the steps indicated in our guide to  configure it for mail in the static DNS  or follow the instructions in the following video:

But why do we need email security?

Email is convenient and easy to use, but it’s also open to cyberattacks and other threats. Email security is the way to protect your account and prevent spam emails from others.

This can prevent scams and phishing attacks that can steal your information. Also, knowing the identity of the sender can protect you from spoofed emails and people pretending to be someone else.

With SPF, you can feel more confident that your email account is protected.

MANTA AIRCRAFT and AVIONORD partner in the development of the ANN platform for medical transportation.

MANTA AIRCRAFT and AVIONORD sign an agreement aimed at developing a version of the Manta ANN platform for rapid Medical Air Transport services.

Sesto Calende, Italy, May 2022 – Manta Aircraft Italia S.r.l. (“Manta Aircraft”), and Avionord S.r.l. (“Avionord”), a private air transport company highly specialized in Medical Air Transport, have entered into an agreement to field in the future as many as 15 hybrid-electric long-range vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft derived from the Manta Aircraft “ANN” platform in medical services configuration. Avionord also invests in Manta Aircraft and takes a stake in the company. Deliveries are expected to start in 2026.

The agreement enables a promising partnership that will foster the development of an ecosystem and

a timely establishment of Advanced Air Mobility. The use of the innovative aircraft platform is planned above all in the area of special transports of organs for transplants, transport of equipment for re-perfusion of organs destined for transplantation as well as for possible rapid-intervention operations. The vertical take-off and landing option, for

example to connect helipads from two hospitals in different cities, coupled with the long range and low infrastructure requirements, result in new point-to-point capabilities and economic efficiencies in the regional range, as this solution represents a significant cost saving and noise reduction compared to conventional helicopters.

“We are honored to be working with Manta Aircraft. After analyzing the market and considering our time-critical missions, we see that the Manta ANN platform is today the only eVTOL offering a range of several hundred kms, which is useful for the missions to transport quickly organs for transplantation from one hospital to another, avoiding being dependent on airports and road transport. The ANN eVTOLs will enable us to reduce the transportation time of the organs, that have a limited life when not connected to the dedicated machines, using aircraft with a reduced operating cost,” says Avionord, CEO Eugenio Cremascoli.

Lucas Marchesini, CEO of Manta Aircraft, adds: “We are very pleased of this partnership with Avionord, who have recognized the uniqueness of the ANN platform in terms of range, pushing into the direction of creating a real use case that will contribute to the rapid establishment of Advanced Air Mobility. From the outset, the design of the aircraft was planned for a relevant range and speed in combination with the low infrastructure requirements and overall costs at a fraction of the cost of a helicopter, in order to be suitable for this kind of operations.”

The investment of Avionord in Manta Aircraft follows the investment of other Italian tech companies and of the State-led CDP VC, in the effort to expedite creating an Italian AAM ecosystem. Manta Aircraft is developing a range of performance-oriented hybrid-electric long-range vertical and short take-off and landing air vehicles (heV/STOL) for regional air mobility and plans to begin certification of the first two-seat, multi-purpose model ANN2 in 2023.

Introducing Our Next-Generation Nuro

We’ve always known that solving last-mile delivery through robotics would better everyday life for millions of people. Designing the right autonomous vehicle to do that — and taking a zero-occupant approach to that design — has been a monumental task involving years of work and iterations built on real-world learning.

We wanted to get it right. We needed to make it safe, fully electric, and easy to operate. And we needed it to scale quickly so it could get to work. Finding the right balance between something we wanted in our own neighborhoods and something that could be produced at scale was no easy feat. But it was worth it.

Now, we’re thrilled to announce Nuro’s third-generation autonomous delivery vehicle. This new vehicle improves on our previous design and is ready to be produced at scale. Every detail is intentional, and now we’re ready to share some of the most impactful innovations of our new model.

Safety

Size

Our new vehicle is approximately 20% smaller in width than average passenger cars. That significantly smaller footprint gives bicyclists and pedestrians more room to maneuver alongside the bot.

Airbag

A custom external pedestrian airbag across the front of the bot is optimized to reduce the force of impact and number of injuries in the event of collision.

Weather

Our next-generation vehicle is designed to safely operate in the same environment as all motor vehicles. That allows us to serve a wide variety of geographies that experience various weather conditions throughout the year.

Experience

Compartments

Taking people out of our vehicles means we have more room for the good stuff. Our 27 ft3 compartments combined can fit about 24 bags of groceries and handle almost 500 lbs. Modular inserts that fit inside the compartments allow for heating and cooling, with a range of temps from 22ºF or hot to 116ºF, which means pizza stays warm and soda stays cool.

Speed

Our new model will be able to reach a top operating speed of 45mph, allowing the vehicle to reach more customers and serve more businesses on a wider variety of roads.

Emissions

Our vehicles are already completely battery-electric and emission-free, but we’ve decided to take our commitment to sustainability even further: in this new vehicle, we’re using 100% renewable electricity from wind farms in Texas to power our fleet and to reduce our overall carbon footprint. And all materials adhere to strict sourcing and supply chain standards meant to protect the natural environment.

Sensors

In addition to being able to sense everything from the difference between a bundle of leaves and a pet to how many pedestrians are standing at a crosswalk in dense fog, the new model also has the ability to clean its own sensors. This self-cleaning is important to maintain operations and retain sensitivity throughout the day.

Security

That commitment to security extends to our customer data, which we prioritize even above our own intellectual data protections. Our privacy policy dictates everything from how we collect data to how we safeguard it, so that our customers have full transparency into the handling of their private data.

Manufacturing

Jobs

BYD will be able to leverage the manufacturing capacity of its Lancaster facility to support Nuro and bring more jobs to California. And we’ll be bringing more jobs to southern Nevada. In fact, our southern Nevada facilities are expected to create an initial 250 highly skilled career opportunities with long-term growth potential in the autonomous vehicle industry.

Why it matters

This is the vehicle we’ll be producing at scale to better everyday life for millions, and we can’t wait for it to be on the road right outside your front door. Because, along with delivering nearly anything from local stores, it’s also delivering greater equity, safer communities, less pollution

TESLA – Artificial Intelligence & Autopilot – Tesla Bot

We develop and deploy autonomy at scale in vehicles, robots and more. We believe that an approach based on advanced AI for vision and planning, supported by efficient use of inference hardware, is the only way to achieve a general solution for full self-driving and beyond.

Hardware

Build silicon chips that power our full self-driving software from the ground up, taking every small architectural and micro-architectural improvement into account while pushing hard to squeeze maximum silicon performance-per-watt. Perform floor-planning, timing and power analyses on the design. Write robust, randomized tests and scoreboards to verify functionality and performance. Implement compilers and drivers to program and communicate with the chip, with a strong focus on performance optimization and power savings. Finally, validate the silicon chip and bring it to mass production.

Neural Networks

Apply cutting-edge research to train deep neural networks on problems ranging from perception to control. Our per-camera networks analyze raw images to perform semantic segmentation, object detection and monocular depth estimation. Our birds-eye-view networks take video from all cameras to output the road layout, static infrastructure and 3D objects directly in the top-down view. Our networks learn from the most complicated and diverse scenarios in the world, iteratively sourced from our fleet of nearly 1M vehicles in real time. A full build of Autopilot neural networks involves 48 networks that take 70,000 GPU hours to train . Together, they output 1,000 distinct tensors (predictions) at each timestep.

Autonomy Algorithms

Develop the core algorithms that drive the car by creating a high-fidelity representation of the world and planning trajectories in that space. In order to train the neural networks to predict such representations, algorithmically create accurate and large-scale ground truth data by combining information from the car’s sensors across space and time. Use state-of-the-art techniques to build a robust planning and decision-making system that operates in complicated real-world situations under uncertainty. Evaluate your algorithms at the scale of the entire Tesla fleet.

Code Foundations

Throughput, latency, correctness and determinism are the main metrics we optimize our code for. Build the Autopilot software foundations up from the lowest levels of the stack, tightly integrating with our custom hardware. Implement super-reliable bootloaders with support for over-the-air updates and bring up customized Linux kernels. Write fast, memory-efficient low-level code to capture high-frequency, high-volume data from our sensors, and to share it with multiple consumer processes— without impacting central memory access latency or starving critical functional code from CPU cycles. Squeeze and pipeline compute across a variety of hardware processing units, distributed across multiple system-on-chips.

Evaluation Infrastructure

Build open- and closed-loop, hardware-in-the-loop evaluation tools and infrastructure at scale, to accelerate the pace of innovation, track performance improvements and prevent regressions. Leverage anonymized characteristic clips from our fleet and integrate them into large suites of test cases. Write code simulating our real-world environment, producing highly realistic graphics and other sensor data that feed our Autopilot software for live debugging or automated testing.

Tesla Bot

Develop the next generation of automation, including a general purpose, bi-pedal, humanoid robot capable of performing tasks that are unsafe, repetitive or boring. We’re seeking mechanical, electrical, controls and software engineers to help us leverage our AI expertise beyond our vehicle fleet.

How to choose your video surveillance system?

How to choose your video surveillance system?

Define the level of home security
To know what video surveillance system you need, it is important to ask yourself how protected your home is currently and in which areas you should reinforce your security.

 

There are many types of video surveillance systems, which means that each one will have different characteristics and peculiarities.

Not all of them could be adjusted to the needs of your home.

Therefore, when choosing a camera system for the home, it is essential to take into consideration:

The design of your house.
The number of entrances to your home.
The size of your house.
The value of your assets
Your budget available.
Using this information, you will be able to determine how your video surveillance system should be for your home.

Types of security cameras for homes
Home security cameras are the ‘mother’ element of any video surveillance system.

They come in different sizes and obviously for different purposes.

Once you have defined what your home security needs are, you should consider the different types of home security cameras and choose the one that is right for you.

The types of cameras are:

BOX cameras
They are security cameras for houses with multifocal and interchangeable lenses.

Bullet cameras
These security cameras are smaller in size; they go unnoticed and can be placed indoors or outdoors.

Dome Cameras
These are placed on the ceiling or walls and offer an anti-vandalism casing.

PTZ cameras
It is a type of security camera camera capable of rotating in a vertical plane and in a horizontal plane and that, in addition, can be zoomed in or out manually or automatically.

How can I improve the video surveillance system?
After selecting the type of camera, one should also emphasize the additional features that video surveillance equipment can offer.

When choosing security cameras there are other variables to consider as well.

From cameras for day or night, waterproof, types of technology available. Pay attention to this list that can also help you improve the functionality of your video surveillance system and increase security:

Adjustable cameras: They are the mobile cameras that can be tilted or zoomed for multiple points of view.
Day / night cameras. Night cameras use infrared LEDs to generate clearer images.
Cameras with high resolution: Cameras with higher resolution offer better image quality.
IP cameras vs wired cameras: IP cameras are those that do not need cables for their operation.
Waterproof cameras: They are the ideal cameras for outdoor places, since they do not ruin when in contact with water.
Cameras with remote access: Synchronizing your video surveillance system with home security applications will allow you to control the cameras and see in real time through your mobile device.
