Marcus Ranum on the "Six Dumbest Ideas in Computer Security"

While I don't want to become a blog that blogs about other blogs, one particular piece by Marcus Ranum is noteworthy: The Six Dumbest Ideas in Computer Security. Marcus Ranum is one of the oldest names in Information Security, having been involved in designing a number of groundbreaking tools and is currently the CEO of NFR. Suffice it to say his comments carry some weight in this industry. Many of his opinions in this paper are valid, but a few I disagree with. Regardless, this is a piece that is worth reading closely.
