Infosec: Can you be too paranoid?

Interesting column from Mark Burnett at Security Focus. Here are some examples of Mark's paranoia:

  • I keep my PC's turned around so I can tell if anyone has installed a hardware keylogger.
  • I never check in luggage when I fly.
  • I do my Internet browsing from a locked down VMWare box that has no rights on my network.
  • I use to see what others might be able to see about my home.
  • It takes five passwords to boot up my laptop and check my e-mail.
  • One of those passwords is over 50 characters long.
