Frank has an interesting post about the movie Troy

I was just browsing the net this evening on the hunt for anything remotely interesting and also about Oracle security and came across Frank Nimphius's post about his thoughts on Oracle security and how they relate to the movie Troy directed by Wolfgang Petersen.

You can find Franks post titled "J2EE Security: What application security can learn from the movie Troy" in his blog page.

This is great insight from Frank who has grouped his thoughts into a few groups of thoughts, "don't underestimate the attacker", "attacks come by surprise", "multiple layers of security is a better defence", "Good defence organizes itself long time before the attack occurs", "Attacking isnít the privilege of the bad guys ", "Tradition doesnít protect your assets", "Social engineering helped the Greek into Troy" and "There is no end".

Frank talks through the movie relating sequences of events in it with hacking and security. This is a great post and relates a non security item - a movie - to the security world of todayís computers and in our case the security of Oracle data and applications.

Great ideas! think like a hacker always, Frank does, this is good if you want to try and protect your data. A hacker will think like a hacker and use every effort to defeat you, security is not new as we can see from Franks post here, and the ideas are also not new as we can see from the ancient world example. Great post, again it is here.
