Key escrow – the process of keeping a set of keys for yourself “just in case” – has always been the US government’s modus operandi when it comes to security.
The TechCrunch article is a must read – for a number of reasons, not the least which are the conclusions. In my “guarded” opinion not having locks at all is ludicrous. In this case, I was tempted to offer no opinion at all (since it might be useless), but I am reducing risk (slightly) by taking issue with the premise and the conclusion. The facts speak for themselves, yet another thread might be No Passwords At All because they might be cracked or Don’t Lock Your Car because criminals know how to break in. Aren’t we forgetting the deterrent or delaying possibilities?
Also, I seriously doubt that the author ever managed a company security office. If he did, I want to know his secret.
