Security Threat Analysis: Interview With Dino A. Dai Zovi
> Alan: That’s a great tip. One last question: in 1998, the members of L0pht testified in front of the US
> Congress that a committed team of hackers could take down the entire Internet in 30 minutes. Security
> has certainly improved and the Internet has certainly gotten bigger, but the attackers have gotten more
> sophisticated too. Do you think that statement still holds today?
> Dino: Yes, and I probably shouldn’t say much more about it than that. Unfortunately, the Internet is more
> fragile than we would like to think and a lot of its core protocols require a redesign with security in mind.
> I apologize for the sometimes short and vague answers, but this business often requires a high degree of
> secrecy in order to protect clients and users.
> Alan: I completely understand. Thank you for your time. It was pleasure.
