You can't hunt you will not eat. You can't eat you'll become > weak and you won't be able to hunt. That seems like a real problem, not > the "predatory behavior" of the Internet. The definition of predatory behavior should be adjusted for the times. Today the majority of the world's population doesn't hunt for food. Some farm, some fish and many purchase food using money from bank accounts. If you exploit the Internet to steal from someone's bank account (e.g., the Citibank fraud at MphasiS), you can affect their ability to buy food or medicine. Running up charges using stolen credit card information might accomplish the same thing. It's predatory behavior if, for personal gain, you put someone in the position of being unable to purchase food and medicine. Or if you succeed in defrauding a business, causing it to fail and people to lose jobs. Or use the Internet to coordinate terrorist activities. Misuse of the Internet is more than annoying behaviors. That's why IPSec, SSL, certs, DSIG, XML encryption and other security technologies are unlikely to diminish in importance. ======== Ken North =========== www.WebServicesSummit.com www.SQLSummit.com www.GridSummit.com
