It may be baseless, but it's a necessary assumption. A MITM attack means that, effectively, you are transmitting data in the clear. It is good security practice to assume that all such data is being recorded and/or logged.
Then do work at work, and non-work at home.
If they do decrypt personal traffic, would they be responsible for any medical data they intercept, thus triggering HIPAA?
Note: this is a gross oversimplification, but accurate relative to this story and what you're asking
HIPAA has to do with patient data, not medical data. If you're not a patient of the company doing the deep inspection, then there's no issue, and there's still no issue if you signed an appropriate HIPAA waiver, even if you ARE a patient and the company in question IS a hospital. If you go to HealthVault or some other site with *your* health records in it, and they are decrypting it, that's not HIPAA in the sense you're talking about.
Hell, even if they were shuffling the SSL traffic to a cloud service hosted by a 3rd party to do the scanning, AND you were a patient, AND the 3rd party was decrypting the data, that is just fine as long as the right paperwork is in place between the two companies.
Perhaps FIOS is still atypical. 300Mbps/75Mbps is what I've got. Pity I can't get 300/300.
That is not a counterexample. 300Mpbs or 75Mbps are not standard ethernet speeds. To do QoS at those speeds you are either at the mercy of the provider-controlled CPE or you try to shape your traffic in your own router. Either way you are into territory where you can make it work, at least with some routers.
This is very different from the situation at 100Mbps or 1Gbps where QoS tends to work just fine without special configuration, except for enabling it on those devices that have it disabled in the default configuration.
Not for me. Comcast was trying to bone me with some rate increases (I was not supposed to be on an introductory rate, but whatever). Called, threatened to cancel. The only thing they offered me was 5 Mb instead of 50 Mb, for $10 less/month.
I now have DSL.
I believe they will segment mission critical systems to a dedicate physical bus with redundant links in any proposed in car network.
I will be surprised if they do that. It would make sense, but since they do not do that today, why should they suddenly start doing so?
There is no reason to assume that TCP/IP or QoS will be standardized upon or even used at all here.
There is every reason to assume that. The car manufacturers are working hard not just to standardize on IPv6 in general, but in fact to have a common approach to such things as address allocation. QoS will be much easier to handle with ethernet, not because it is less complex but because the code is already written and widely deployed.
Also, QoS is a total dog if you are trying to employ it on consumer grade equipment.
I must admit that I have never tried to use QoS on ethernet with consumer grade equipment. Why would you want to though? Generally you have precisely one switch at home, and that switch is typically capable of simultaneous full speed on all ports, so it only drops packets if multiple input ports are trying to send more than 1 gigabit in total to one output port. I have difficult imagining that scenario in a home.
QoS on the WAN is entirely different, but the WAN is typically not yet ethernet, or at least not ethernet at standard speeds.
Mixing entertainment systems and critical safety systems on the same bus is common already. The only change is that with ethernet you get decent bandwidth and well-understood QoS.
Frankly, I'll never understand why anyone would apply for a job at IBM, unless he's already desperate. Here in Austin, I know plenty of people who have left IBM over the past few years, most of them willingly. I don't know anyone who has joined IBM in the last 10 years.
Is the proposed law limited to mitochondrial DNA? And even if it is, how long before that restriction is lifted in another law? Once you start down this road, there's no going back. The end result is obvious: a world like Gattaca, where every unborn child will need his DNA tampered just to get a job.
I still run Snow Leopard, because I still have a few PowerPC applications that I don't want to update.
It does not make sense to put half a ton of batteries into a small car. Unfortunately you do not save much on batteries when going from a large car to a small car.
The US has pretty much given up on tactical nukes.
Even from the first of your links: "Most allies today see U.S. tactical nuclear weapons as being of political rather than military significance".
Russia wants tactical nuclear weapons to handle the fact that their conventional forces are inferior to both NATO and (probably) Chinese forces. They are hoping that they would be able to use those weapons in a conflict without triggering the use of strategic nuclear weapons. This is the very opposite of MAD.
No one you don't know or trust is in charge of the private keys for the encryption. Except if you don't trust the party you are talking to, in which case you are looking for DRM, not encryption.
in fact, the cluster bombs and fuel-air explosives we've been using in Iraq and Afghanistan have considerably more explosive power than tactical nuclear weapons.
There is no sensible need to have tactical nuclear weapons. They do nothing for MAD, since they are not all that destructive, and they just encourage proliferation.
