The Six Dumbest Ideas in Computer Security

The Six Dumbest Ideas in Computer Security. An amazing article that should be of interest for the network administrators. Pay attention to the "The Minor Dumbs" section - it is the funniest part of the text.
There's lots of innovation going on in security - we're inundated with a steady stream of new stuff and it all sounds like it works just great. Every couple of months I'm invited to a new computer security conference, or I'm asked to write a foreword for a new computer security book. And, thanks to the fact that it's a topic of public concern and a "safe issue" for politicians, we can expect a flood of computer security-related legislation from lawmakers. So: computer security is definitely still a "hot topic." But why are we spending all this time and money and still having problems?
