Hi folks,

Came across this paper "On the Rules of Engagement" from Symbiot Inc
proposes that a strong network defense system is not deterrent enough.
They suggest countermeasures by "returning fire" against the attackers
network, basically attack the attackers networks. If I am not mistaken,
this is the first time such an approach has been formalised. Its gonna
be worth seeing how this is taken forward.

Heres an interesting interview by onlamp.com with the writer of this
paper
