What startrek tells us about the future of IT security…

Robert “RSnake” Hansen has written a wonderfull peace about what Startrek can tell us about future IT security

Virtualization security is an oxymoron – even in the distant future: I mean, really, how many times has the whole damned ship been taken over by some overzealous holodeck character? Whoever wrote the holodeck hypervisor really needs to be put in a room with Warf for a few hours so he can explain with his batleth what the need for true physical and logical isolation is. Why some Sherlock Holmes character should have access to main memory, I’ll never know. Too bad we aren’t smart enough in the distant future to think about hardware isolation instead of relying exclusively on dangerously faulty software.

You should really check it out have a laugh and then think about it…
