Research on networks is an area that we should watch more closely than any other. Perhaps more important than the borrowing of techniques, however, is paying close attention to the ferment over whether new network designs with security in mind are worth the societal price and effort to actually implement in a world that already has a considerable sunk investment in structure. How networks build themselves does have considerable influence on our field of practice.
