Cryptography 'Becoming Less Important,' Adi Shamir Says
»threatpost.com/en_us/blogs/rsa-c···d-022613 from »it.slashdot.org/story/13/02/26/2···mir-says
"In the current climate of continuous attacks and intrusions by APT crews, government-sponsored groups and others organizations, cryptography is becoming less and less important, one of the fathers of public-key cryptography said Tuesday. Adi Shamir, who helped design the original RSA algorithm, said that security experts should be preparing for a 'post-cryptography' world. 'I definitely believe that cryptography is becoming less important. In effect, even the most secure computer systems in the most isolated locations have been penetrated over the last couple of years by a series of APTs and other advanced attacks,' Shamir said during the Cryptographers' Panel session at the RSA Conference today. 'We should rethink how we protect ourselves. Traditionally we have thought about two lines of defense. The first was to prevent the insertion of the APT with antivirus and other defenses. The second was to detect the activity of the APT once it's there. But recent history has shown us that the APT can survive both of these defenses and operate for several years."

We should rethink how we protect ourselves
Absolutely, and just as the attackers constantly rethink the methods of infiltration. A more pro-active rather than retro-active approach.
