On Religion; Security One, Of Course

It started from Dave's Gradient paper (here), it continued on his list and beyond. It is a fun discussion about broad security trends, which main centers around the following: should you use security measures that are trivial to defeat (like NIDS or NIPS)? Is the incremental increase of security (e.g. vs amateur attackers) worth the headache of deployment efforts? Or does it create a false sense of security instead? It was also phrased as incremental vs "absolute" security.

Follow the debate and decide ...
