re: Report: Security Spending Soars Any money spent on security equipment is really not a productive investment. It is just like an incurable desease that will eat some companies alive as the cost of doing business will increase tremendously.

I think there has to be some realization that many wise companies are going to increase their capital expenditure on security equipment. Every thing is just a scare tactics that will eat up our telecom and networking industry.

re: Report: Security Spending Soars anyone have any idea of who is doing hardware for the security?

re: Report: Security Spending Soars Security is definitely needed ! Even if the chances someone can eventually penetrate is there, we need to develop better security to keep the expectations of the masses in check, and continue social acceptance of internet business

re: Report: Security Spending Soars What about the deployment of intrusion detectors at the physical layer, especially for optical fibre links ?

re: Report: Security Spending Soars Security spending does not create value, it prevents others from destroying or stealing an organizataions value. It is a necessary evil for any large organization. It is hard to measure the ROI for something that doesn't save money or create revenues, but an approach is to see what the potential losses a criminal could inflict on an unprotected network.

Harware vendors: Nokia, Netscreen, Crossbeam, many others...
What approach is preferred, software or hardware products?

re: Report: Security Spending Soars >>What about the deployment of intrusion detectors at the physical layer, especially for optical fibre links ?<<

Intrusion detectors at the physical layer for optical fibre links is an interesting area that has not been explored much. Most solutions are in the testing and monitoring space where equipment is external, uses diagnostic ports, and most often is utilized after-the-fact, where damage has most likely already taken place. Fibre optic couplers, taps, 'microphones' and the like are what one would be searching for here. There are also various known methods which act upon a fibre's natural scattering and are thus extremely difficult, if not impossible, to detect.

To protect against all such cases, an integrated solution would be a more useful approach, where intrusion detection is coupled with some sort of physical layer security. There was some activity at the government level in the late 80's/early 90's for fibre link protection, but the solutions weren't easily applicable to commercial networks and as with many government solutions were rather expensive.

There has been some recent activity in the US with companies' using a special variation of phase-modulation to transport the optical data stream in a secure manner. This is being coupled with intrusion detectors at the physical layer and possibly in conjunction with an OTDR to detect and locate devices on the optical fibre link.

Can imagine would be useful for government applications and possibly also for some large corporate applications requiring high confidentiality/integrity/availability of data (SAN/FC, Disaster Recover, WAN, ...). Perhaps there is also a play here for carriers at some point as a secure connectivity service, although tough in current capex environment. Baby Bell Federal Systems Divisions might make sense too.
