'ello all!

I was just over at Slashdot.org, and I saw a posting on their Ask Slashdot forum about securing communications with satellites (as in the ones in orbit around the Earth). I found that it was a very interesting prospect, and I never really thought about the security of a satellite before, but if someone had the high gain antennas necessary to reach the satellites, what is to keep them from getting taken over?

Either way, I just thought it was very interesting, and I would say it'd be quite a bit harder to secure satellite communications than it would to secure an Win 2k IIS box.
