Re: Holy Grail

Purpose for posting it was, after reading it, there is not enough in my
opinion to warrant a nuclear lock down on this information. I did this to
sort of prove a point to those in the industry: "Stop letting vendors sell
you short." As an engineer they've (Cisco) shortchanged clients using
their equipment. If it's IPv6 based only, and not that big of a threat,
then they should see no problem with the information being released.

Before anyone decides to send in legal hounds, take note this is
searchable via Google... 5 minutes tops with over 100+ sites listing the
PDF. Sorry Cisco.
