Re: Security basics



In view of the technical complexity of engineering "layers of
security" on one's home or small business system, it seems that an
entrepreneurial soul (who is a Computer Security Expert) could make a
living at a business that works by offering the following "free
initial service call."

You agree to pay the Expert $0.00 if, after supplying him with your
IP, he is unable to break into your system.  If, on the other hand, he
_is_ able to break in, and leave positive proof of the feat, you agree
to pay $300, which then buys a basic level of System analysis and
Solution.  (Contractual details, safeguards against abuse, legal
protections, &c., are left as an exercise to the budding businessman.)

One incentive to pay the Expert is the thought of what might happen to
your system if you renegged. :-)
