ABSTRACT
In an attempt to encourage engineers and security analysts to look at systems from the strangest perspectives, the author offers two examples why this is important: the first comes from the journalistic media the second comes from his group's research in protocol security for wireless ad hoc networking.
INDEX TERMS
secure systems, security analysis, simple exploits
