Kids may be more security-savvy than we think

The SANS Internet Storm Center's diary entry for today talks about something I find, frankly, amazing. Scott Weil, the head of SANS' Local Mentor training programs, spoke with a group of school children about Internet safety issues. He asked some of the students to design an attack against their school's network, and the rest to design defensive measures to protect their network against attackers. I'm amazed by the sophistication their responses displayed.
