Biggest Impediment to Progress Is...
Lack of consensus on just about everything security
baseline security policy
vendor (!) vs central (helpdesk) vs individual control
enterprise vs consumer, parent vs child
end-to-end vs point-to-point with proxy intermediaries
performance!
Even the best best practices aren't good enough!
one-size just won't fit all
need a few characteristic profiles to tackle
departmental servers, enterprise data center servers
public interface servers, proxies, guards
networking (routing, authentication) infrastructure
