  • security axioms Network security is maximized when we assume there is no such thing. Large security perimeters mean large vulnerability zones. Firewalls are such a good idea, every computer should have one. Seriously. Remote access is fraught with peril, just like local access. One person's security perimeter is another's broken network. Isolation strategies are limited by how many PCs you want on your desk. Network security is about psychology as much as technology. Bonus: never forget that computer ownership is not for the feint-hearted.
  • 12.credo focus first on the edge(perimeter protection paradox) add defense in depth as needed keep it manageable provide for local policy choice... avoid one-size-fits-all
  • 13.gray’s defense-in-depth conjecture MTTE (exploit) = k * N**2 MTTI (innovation) = k * N**2 MTTR (repair) = k * N**2where N = number of layers
