Fiber map presents security threat

Sean Gorman is getting heat from officials about his PhD thesis paper that maps out fiber-optic networks: “…when they presented [the findings] at a forum of chief information officers of the country’s largest financial services companies — clicking on a single cable running into a Manhattan office, for example, and revealing the names of 25 telecommunications providers — the executives suggested that Gorman and Schintler not be allowed to leave the building with the laptop.”

This genie is out of the bottle. That this could be done by a few people with limited resources, means it can be done again, so whether Sean’s PHd thesis is silenced or not makes no difference now.
