Have you taken your security pills?

The other day, I made what I think is a very apt analogy comparing the security product industry to the diet and herbal supplement industry.

  • Both operate with little to no oversight or regulation (though security at least has bloggers and scientists willing to call out some of the more egregious offenders)
  • Products often have little to no academic, scientific or factual basis for their designs or claims
  • Products tend toward the panacea/"silver bullet" realm and claim to solve all your ills

I'm sure that I am missing some more...
