comment What is a good analogy to explain to a layman why passwords should be hashed?
@HC_ iterative key derivation functions like pbkdf2 and scrypt make the hashing step take longer by doing it many times. The idea is that if it takes longer per guess then an attacker can't make as many attempts. There's lots more info out there in the subject, Google will lead you to it.

comment Are two firewalls better than one?
As a rule, you don't exploit a firewall. There's no code you can download that will defeat Juniper firewalls or Cisco firewalls. You bypass a firewall by tunneling your traffic over connections that the firewall is already configured to allow.
