Security Theater

MI STAVO QUASI dimenticando di linkarlo. Bruce Schneier sulle (inutili) misure di sicurezza post attentato di Natale.

Money Quote: "Security theater" refers to security measures that make people feel more secure without doing anything to actually improve their security. An example: the photo ID checks that have sprung up in office buildings. No one has ever explained why verifying that someone has a photo ID provides any actual security, but it looks like security to have a uniformed guard-for-hire looking at ID cards.
