Dear Editor,
It’s nice that you published an article about system and data security. People need to be aware. Overconfidence in encrypted communications however is a disaster waiting to happen. The author wrote: “Another benefit of the way Linux deals with encryption is that any information that is read or written is directly transferred between RAM and the container: any piece of information that exists outside of the computer’s memory is always encrypted.”

This is flawed logic as demonstrated by recent attacks on target and other retail giants. RAM scraping is actually pretty old news.

I also heartily disagree with his contention that computers are not/can not be capable of human like intuition. They become more intuitive with every additional line of code (written by humans contributing combined years of knowledge, experiences, and bias. Shalom, – B.C.
