Over on The Emergent Chaos blog, there’s a neat post of Saltzer and Schroeder’s security principals using scenes from Star Wars as illustration. A fun introduction to a classic work on the security of information systems.

The article also made me stop and think about how the principles of security and safety engineering seem to overlap in a number of areas, and what we might get from looking at safety with our security glasses on.

The subject of another post perhaps. 🙂
