Indeed. Inherent leakiness of digital technology is a gift of Olympus,
aka James Bidzos aka RSA. Never enough fault-rich crypto.

Digitalization might be the quintessential foolhardiness, or comsec
opportunism, which had led to endless apologies, apologias, apoplexies.

And hurrahs among investors, urging hackers and insiders to spill
secrets sufficient to assure comsec-panicky buyers. Bug bounties
hilariously, assuredly, self-defeating as backdoor warnings.

The name of the game is to protect the secrets despite bugs. And I
don't mean with cryptography.
