Alan Paller : Notes from the White House

"Witt Diffie stole the show with his analogy of DDoS attacks to the "breakdown of democracy." He said, "It's as if, Mr. President, you lost an election, not because people voted against you, but because someone stole votes and cast them in favor of your opponent. ... Throughout, the President asked many follow up questions and told us how he looked at the problem (like an arms race where some people develop weapons and other people develop defenses and the goal is to make the time between new weapons of your enemies and the applicable defenses as close to zero as possible)." Mr. Paller is the Director of Research at the SANS Institute
