  • I now understand enough about security, to know that I don't actually know all that much. I'm now more careful than I use to be, and I think the code I write is safe enough.

    This week I've started to learn about a SAP system. For security reasons the root password on the AIX and Linux boxen it runs on are changed every 90 days - an unpopular feature that an auditor insisted on, yet nobody bats an eye lid that they are all running telnet, rsh and NFS unprotected on the company intranet. Contrasting this we have my firm's humble web servers, that all use SSH, with pretty much every service turned off, and the latest one additionnaly runs iptables.
