In my 20+ years of security experience in the Internet community, it
has often been the arguments for the need to make do with existing
features or to adopt quick fix solutions that have retarded the
deployment of better security technology. In retrospect, this
approach has not served us well.
I have a time machine.
I just went back 20 years in time, convinced everybody that it
was always more important to implement proper security than to
make do with existing features and quick fix solutions. Having
thus changed the future, I went back forward in time.
Guess what---there was no internet!
