At first glance, you're web page looks very useful. However, I noticed one
thing in skimming through it. Under the section
http://www.accs.com/p_and_p/SolSec/#Network, the paper states:
This subject has no bearing on security...
I would disagree with this statement. First of all, you can make a file
system read-only and/or nosuid, and secondly you can contain file growth
(perhaps DOS issues are minor). Therefore, your disk layout does have a
bearing on security. Comments? Did I miss something by just skimming?
