Excellent article!
Thanks for an article that reflects what I have preached for a while - encryption coupled with two-factor authentication, such as user credentials coupled with a trusted device - results in a lock that foils all but the most determined hacker.  

Much like my grandfather telling me that "locks keep honest poeople honest" our security feature cannot keep out the very determined hackers, but they can make it so hard to access that these determinied hacckers go after easier prey.

re: Lock Three Doors To Protect Your Data
Superb!! the essay touches on the concept of the Trusted Environment,-- i.e. knowing that you have correct copies of the proper programs -- and nothing else. This needs to start at POST as Security is like a balloon: a pin-prick -- and POP! Gone.

security has to win by a complete shut-out

I shall look forward to additional comments supporting this excellent lead by Tom Quillin.

re: Lock Three Doors To Protect Your Data
Great encryption points! While I get point about encryption for data-in-motion and data-at-rest, you miss that one can also use encryption to secure data in use. Wikipedia has a nice page describing data-in-use security - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D... .
