Re: Big leap
Exactly -- shared responsibility works better than the "it's somebody else's problem" approach.

Re: Big leap
Insofar as it's a 'yuge' problem, it might be useful to bake in ownership among all stakeholders, in a sort of 'triadic' way, where if one approach to security fails you still have two others...

Re: Big leap
JB -- That's a YUGE issue with security -- it's somebody else's problem to deal with. The reality is that responsibility for security has to be baked into every aspect of building and running networks and services. It's a mistake to cordon off security as a separate layer in the process, but that's a mistake that's commonly made.

Re: Big leap
Do we have a tragedy of the commons in play here, with no one owning the problem? That said, Brian's way of putting it reminds of me of the time when, the day after I declined a door-to-door solicitation for a home security service, I was awakened middle of the night by strange noises at the window.

Re: Big leap
Sadly I think we are going to start seeing a level of malware on apps akin to the old days of Windows. It's not necessarily the OEMs that this is a problem for, its the fact that hackers are targeting mobile platforms with a lot of gusto these days.

Re: Big leap
Yes, and the levels of security are different -- as in there's security at the physical level, the network level, the app level, the end-user-device level.

Re: Big leap
If Allot (and no doubt its competitors) is saying that service providers can offer security-as-a-service, the tools have to be there.

Re: Big leap
Yes -- because, well, there isn't enough outrage in the world right now. But how is a network operator capable of mitigating security problems caused by a crappily designed app?

Re: Big leap
The point is that nobody capable of mitigating security problems is responsible for security problems. That's an outrage.

Big leap
To say that network operators are not providing security is not accurate. Their security efforts are focused on maintaining the integrity of the network, which is as it should be. The idea that network operators are responsible for security problems in the apps that run over their networks is strange -- unless I'm missing something.
