Softtware diversity discussion over at nCircle

windows of our minds
Originally uploaded by xem39.
An interesting write-up on software diversity popped up on the nCircle blog. In the past, this sort of crazy talk in industry caused authors to lose their jobs. Leveraging diversity to increase the attack tolerance of a network received attention in places relatively insulated from industry politics; I did some work for my Ph.D. that showed that the allocation of diversity could be expressed as a graph theory problem as well as it being an effective method for slowing a virus. Tim Keanini isn't trying to point fingers but is attempting to describe economically efficient means by which diversity can be realized in today's data centers.
