Wow. Bruce Schneier linked to the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project’s recent public release of information on their security platform, Bitfrost. I am impressed. I’m no security guru, but I am an enthusiastic amateur when it comes to the subject. It looks like they’ve done a very impressive job on both thinking through the potential attack scenarios, and also realizing that much of the machine’s utility lies in allowing the user to be able to have unfettered access when they want it. They’ve made some clever compromises that let both happen.
