Imagine Cerf sitting on his Founding Father throne, listening to Wagner, looking back on a long career. This might be a guy whose advice is worth taking.
Cerf says the biggest Internet security threats are the proliferation of spam, botnets, malware, and denial-of-service (DoS) attacks. He has hope for security, though, and cites domain name security (DNSSEC) technology, filtering of source IP addresses, use of IPSec, and two-factor authentication as the promising security measures of the near future.
Didn’t we know this already? Perhaps. But it always helps to hear it from the horse’s mouth.
I’ll leave you with a little Jimi Hendrix this week: “Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.” Be a wise VAR. Listen to your dad.
