Gee, I wish you knew what you were talking about. Basic security starts with

tcp_wrappers is joke security. Anyone using TCP wrappers and hostname-based
rules is braindead.
SSH does not require reverse DNS to operate properly.
Oracle (try and build a DB without reverse working right. Net8 stops you
dead in your tracks).
Sorry, but this is just 100% wrong. I've set up Oracle on many boxes and you
don't need any DNS at all to set up an oracle DB. In fact, I tell our DBA's
to use IP addresses in their TNSNAMES.ORA files because I don't want the DB
depending on DNS.
Half of my ACLs don't work right because reverse isn't correct.
Too bad for you. Maybe you should get better ACL's.
