As to the level of security needed... um, does that mean I have to

take my home computer down a few levels from the top level DoD

specifications as outlined by NIST?  Man, all that work... ;o)



Personally, I'd be interested in knowing how you got a home computer *up* to
those levels in the first place (hint - you probably blew it big time on the
"physical security" rules - for instance, DOD 5220.22-M, section 5-307

says:



      c.    GSA-approved security containers and approved vaults secured
with a

locking mechanism meeting Federal Specification FF-L-2740 do not require
supplemental protection when the CSA has determined that the GSA-approved
security container or approved vault is located in an area of the facility
with security-in-depth.



So you got your server in one of these:

and it's locked with one of these:

Yeah, that's a lot of work :)
