Is the computer security field really old enough to have lost treasures? Will a granite punch card with ancient Cobol contain some code fragment that produces a better firewall? Hardly. The computing environment changes so much and so radically that implementation details lose relevance quickly. However, concepts and key insights can serve modern developers just as well today as they did builders of ancient systems from the 1980s.
