The single biggest challenge in computer security at the present time is how to
build *and deploy* servers that stay reasonably secure even when run by the
average wave-a-dead-chicken sysadmin, and desktop-class boxes that can survive
the best attempts of Joe Sixpack's "Ooh shiny" reflex, and Joe's kid's attempts
to evade the nannyware that Joe had somebody install.

(If you know how to build such things, don't bother replying. If you have
actual field experience on getting significant percents of Joe Sixpacks to
switch, I need to buy you a beer or something.. ;)
