Ignorance: The Hackers' Best Friend
The goal of this eWEEK Special Report is to provide a leg up. We gathered security experts from the research and vendor communities--The SANS Institute, Microsoft Corp., Oracle Corp., Sun Microsystems Inc. and Symantec Corp.--for a roundtable discussion that examined the relative securability of Web-based computing and the role of the vendor community and enterprise IT in creating or magnifying risks. Oracle put "unbreakable" in perspective and advocated working with and not against hackers, while Microsoft addressed the "Is it a feature or a bug?" question. Symantec and Sun focused on end-user responsibility, while SANS addressed the practical problems of system configuration. The complete transcript of the roundtable will be available soon at www.eweek.com, as will audio highlights of the conversation.
