layered security for the modern Internet

  • From: E.B. Dreger
  • Date: Sun Mar 07 14:35:04 2004

Looking at last week's NANOG posts: SAV... 30% of spam from
h4x0r3d boxen... bagle...

It seems the original definition and ideology of layered security
are outdated.  Layered security now means:

* Do nothing at a given layer if the problem can be solved, or
  partially solved, at another layer;

* If a problem cannot be completely solved at a given layer, do
  nothing at that layer;

* Approach the problem by arguing on NANOG over who has the most
  representative analogy.
