why don t we use existing protocols
Why Don’t We Use Existing Protocols?


  • Technology
    • Incompatible protocols
    • Different methods of manipulating security infrastructure
  • Policy
    • Impact of laws, regulations, economics
    • Leads to non-obvious behavior

If It’s Stupid But WorksIt’s Not Stupid

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

Cameras May Open Up the Board Room to Hackers


SAN FRANCISCO — One afternoon this month, a hacker took a tour of a dozen conference rooms around the globe via equipment that most every company has in those rooms; videoconferencing equipment.

With the move of a mouse, he steered a camera around each room, occasionally zooming in with such precision that he could discern grooves in the wood and paint flecks on the wall. In one room, he zoomed out through a window, across a parking lot and into shrubbery some 50 yards away where a small animal could be seen burrowing underneath a bush. With such equipment, the hacker could have easily eavesdropped on privileged attorney-client conversations or read trade secrets on a report lying on the conference room table.

  • How can an enterprise enable a partner to discover endpoint addresses?
  • How can an enterprise that needs to keep endpoint addresses private advertise those addresses to partners?
  • How can an enterprise share this information with select individuals at partner enterprises?
