Define Threat Asymmetry
You can deploy some modern firewalls in Layer 2 mode such that they are transpart
Once upon a time, ZoneAlarm was the best personal firewall available. It was free, stable and excellent. I seem to remember using it from 2002-2003 or so – then Zonealarm was acquired by CheckPoint and the product was lost to the retail market.

I’m deleting social media accounts with a sense of fear. Who wants to share _everything_ ? I did, until I realised how dangerous Network Theory is for exposing information about you. And everyone you know.
Who said people in security don’t have a sense of humour ? My crypto presentation that I teach in my InfoSec classed boiled down to a 4 minute original music video with labs. Even if you don’t like the music, if you do the labs and understand what is happening, it should help anyone pass […]

Microsoft announces zero-day exploitable RDP flaw that gets full compromise of server. Expects worm to be available within thirty days. I get to gloat and say “I told you so” to all Microsoft admins everywhere.

I really wish that this feature could be added. Right now I am troubleshooting a firewall and from where I am right now the only way in is to SSH to the ASA. I can do whatever I want inside the firewall from my SSH-window, but I need to access a router inside of that firewall, and if this feature wasn´t missing i could simply run ‘ssh ip-address’ to jump to the switch´s CLI.
Am I the last CLI-.guy on this planet? Please, Cisco?
