Okopipi could put a bullseye on you

The Okopipi Project, open source predecessor to Blue Security, is already coming under fire.

“I respect the Okopipi group for the effort and time required to launch such a project,” says Alex Eckleberry, CEO of Sunbelt Software, a Clearwater, Florida-based security company. “But I think it’s an awful idea to have this registry.”

I can only imagine a distributed denial of service attack, only instead of being distributed from multiple sources to a single point, it’s distributed from multiple sources to multiple points.

Or at least that’s what I think Mr. Eckleberry might be concerned with.
