Yeah, I know that sounds a little crazy, but, according to this PDF from the NSA, it can be done. No joke. The National Security Agency doe NOT joke about computer security. Trust me, I would not lie to you about something like that. (Not that I know from personal experience, and that’s the story I’m sticking to!)
In fact, these folks have a bunch of security guides that are freely available on the ‘net. I’m sure the idea here is that computer security is important to Homeland Security which is the biggest buzzword since “synergy”. Whatver the reason, when the NSA offers me security guides for free, I just thank my new governmental overlords and welcome them to my network!
