   RE: [xml-dev] Re: Can A Web Site Be Reliably Defended Against DoS Attac

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Until you put the wrong application on it and it fails 
spectacularly in living color on international TV.

This isn't a trivial, 'we'll fix it when we get around 
to it' lalala problem.  DDoS means simply that the 
push of IP into some domains is driving ahead of the 
headlights.  The approach of "we'll create transport 
agnostic formats" is fine but does not go far enough 
because the pressures to drink the IP/REST/HTTP are 
real and dangerous.

It is time to start listening to the designers at 
Microsoft.  If the web can't pull it off, we'll 
have to go to companies that can.   It is time 
for a consortium to form whose mandate is to 
create a global network that is safe and reliable 
for mission critical applications.  This should 
be an effort undertaken by the companies who 
understand the problem and have a culture that 
can practice end-to-end engineering, not 80/20.

Yup, running code beats out almost everything else.
