Re: another security story -- or an opportunity



I sort of like the "flatness" of the internet (w/o firewalls etc.) and
the notion of a "personal firewall" -- an agent that checks credentials
at the door. Access control based on certificates rather than IP
addresses. The way LANs are currently firewalled off from the rest of
the world renders them secure but isolated -- Inferno could help remove
that tradeoff, but it means tearing down some of the old barriers.
