Halting State

Image of Halting State

The real security is all in the firewalls, and the data integrity schemas. Nobody ever imagined a band of Orcs would steal a database table…

The traffic looks like game-play to GCHQ or CESG or NSA or whoever’s sniffing packets; looking in-game for characters run by Abdullah and Salim holding private chat about blowing up the White House garden gnomes won’t get you a handle on what’s going on because they’re using it as a transport layer! They’re tunnelling TCP/IP over AD&D!

Altro bel romanzo di Chales Stross: divertente, appassionante e niente affatto prevedibile.
