Security Flashcards

I created version 2 of the Alexa skill Security Flashcards. This version uses a JSON file for content (versus having it inline in the code) and has 100 security terms (so far). To use:

  1. Enable the Security Flashcards skill on your Echo device
  2. Visit for a list of terms that are available.
  3. Launch Security Flashcards
  4. Pick a term, think about what you think the definition is, then ask Alexa to define the term

The goal is to provide a tool to help prepare for security certification exams, as well as understand some concepts that are part of the foundation of information security.

Please let me know if you disagree with any definitions, or have other suggestions for improvement. If you are interested in creating your own Alexa skill, there are plenty of resources available including starter code on Github to get you started.  Enjoy!
