RE: [xml-dev] XML is Mobile Code? [was: Defining an XML vocabulary: specify syntax, semantics, and BEHAVIOR?]


The reason to monitor the network traffic is to interpret content.

XML makes that easier and more reliable.


From: Michael Kay [mailto:mike@saxonica.com] 
Well, terrorists can blow up an aeroplane by sending the SMS message "Hello
world" to a suitably configured mobile phone. All data is executable code,
given a suitable interpreter. Anyone who thinks they can achieve security by
monitoring the data sent over a network (e.g. by prohibiting attachments
with the file extension .ZIP or .XML) is either extremely naive, or
pragmatic enough to know that it's only a very small part of the solution.
