Hi, IMO RT has only one chance: Make it as secure as you can and tell the people about it, why and how you have done it. Than give them the choice to change it, on their own responsibility. I can't understand comapnies delivering products with relaxed or even complete open security models... that's what we call "Grob Fahrlaessig" in Germany. Don't allow anything by default and let the user choose what to do. Robert
