tried to reword this to be more readable - hopefully I haven't broken the meaning.

comment Security quiz for developers
I think a quiz might be a tricky one in terms of keeping on topic here, or indeed answerable on SE at all. It could be very time localised, as much of infosec changes with time, however high level concepts remain valid. Wonder if this question can be changed round to remove this potential problem.

comment Linux tools to choose suitable Cisco ASA 5500
As @ladadadada said, it could cope with a small DDoS. If you have a large attack no router will be enough, and you'll need to use a DDoS mitigation provider. See our other questions tagged DDoS.

Also, the headline appears to be different to the question. Do you want to know what factors should guide your decision? Or do you want to know some linux tools?

We generally discourage cross-posting unless you expect very different audiences. I have asked the Unix&Linux mods whether we should merge.

+1 for the DDoS protection service. If someone wants to DDoS you an ASA will not be enough.

comment Why does my bank use this verification method?
@Anonymous-some of the functionality is on the card, some is in the reader. This is why chip and PIN is catching on everywhere (possibly not the US yet :-) as it makes a second level of security quite simple to implement, along with simple revocation - just cancel the card.
