I think you're really not giving enough credit to those in charge of security auditing in the DoD. First, this may be the way the general likes to explain it, but I don't think it's entirely true, that their tactic is based on security through obscurity. Second, I don't believe those in charge of the auditing would let something as simple as not having the right device to read an old floppy foil their intrusion attempt. It may be old, but I'm willing to bet it's just as secure now as it ever was.

Not sure if you're aware or not, in Vegas they are piloting a system that does this for taxi drivers. As soon as the cab gets close enough to anything in front of it, the driver's seat vibrates to hell. (x10 if it's a pedestrian in front) It's annoying even as a passenger. Especially if you're sitting behind the driver and your knees have to touch the seat.
