Frankly, I can't think of a better alternative. In fact, it's basically impossible to graft a secure subsystem onto an insecure machine if you cannot restrict access from the insecure system in any way. A Bad Guy with root access, on a Unix box, is just the ultimate example of this principle. -- Matthias Urlichs | noris network AG | -- The average American spends 37 weeks of his life driving over speed bumps.
