* Microsoft Supports Security Enablement
A September 15, 2006 advertising supplement to CIO magazine demonstrates
that Microsoft views security enablement as valid
* FUD Theater
So-far-to-date non-existent Toorcon Firefox Exploits; Vendors focusing
only on vulnerabilities and exploits to an abnormal extent = FUD Theater.
The perspective of focusing on, voicing and exploiting fear, uncertainty
and doubt for an agenda other than the truth is what what one might call
This is in contrast to "security theater" which aims at describing when
non-optimal security methods are established instead of one’s that would
be truly effective.
* Virtual Trust Help to Flatten the World...
Authentication used as an example of future enablement. Virtual Trust
abound in the book, "The World is Flat"
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
