We start with one big problem. Internet architecture was never made for security. One of my earliest articles quoted the father of the Internet Vint Cerf by saying, "One of things incumbent on all of us is to introduce strong authentication into the fabric of the smart grid. We did not do that with the Internet."

I had one sysadmin a few years ago who demanded we all use 64 character passwords and every other character had to switch type. It was something like ^y?M3aI`B[a/ and so on... It took two minutes to type it in and I had to carry a paper with the password written on it. I was so glad when he left...
