I can certainly understand the need for access control & security, but
with the use of a smart-card one-time password system, this is a moot
You're expecting me to obtain one of those things for my system
at home? And assuming that password type capable access
protection is the only kind of protection I care about.
Lets be a little reasonable please - access filters aren't
dead yet (I would like to see them vanish, and I would hope that
one day that might happen, today isn't that day).
I will believe this has happened when cisco no longer support
packet filtering in their routers.
