QOTD - Schneier on Function Creep

Far too often we build security for one purpose, only to find it being used for another purpose -- one it wasn't suited for in the first place. And then the security system has to play catch-up.
[...]
Sometimes it's obvious that security systems designed for one environment won't work in another.
[...]
The real problems arise when the changes happen in the background, without any conscious thought. -- Bruce Schneier is Chief Security Technology Officer at BT
