RE: BGP-based blackholing/hijacking patented in Australia?
I like point 13 where you highlight how the system is doesn't work. In anycase I doubt that this patent is any more valid outside of the blackholing part and I hope this gets stuck in some lengthy patent legal argument preventing anyone from using it! :-) Why not ask the banks to be responsible net users and protect their customers properly with Token based authentication. Banks in Switzerland have done this successfully. Regards, Neil. > Just to ease peoples concerns, the patent has nothing to do > with blackholing.
