I think that's grossly overstated, if not just plain wrong. Ceteris paribus, a system with port knocking is almost certainly more secure than a system without port knocking. It's not a guarantee against penetration. But even if it's only a heightened "degreee" of security not an additional "kind" of security measure (as you argue), it's still heightened security. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
