Linux, politics, and other interesting things
Bruce has written an interesting post about wireless encryption . His main ideas seem to be that it’s nice to provide emergency net access for random people, that attempting to secure a wireless network only causes more problems when (not if) it is broken, and that your machines which are mobile need to be secure against a hostile LAN anyway.
These all make sense. I’d probably be doing the same if it wasn’t for the problems I had getting 802.11b gear working in my house (maybe conflicts with some of the other wireless equipment I run) and for the fact that I run NFS over my home network (which needs decent performance and has no security).
