The BUILDING CODES component

Answers this Authenticity question:

Question: By what standards are we assured that an information facility is habitable — that is, secure and manageable?

Answer:Your information is never secure in a private, cryptographic tunnel if it is exposed at the ends of the tunnel. Indeed, a tunnel can be less secure than the outdoor space around it, because it gives its occupants a false sense of security. Building codes are sets of standards and procedures that ensure the integrity of the virtual buildings that enclose, for example, the ends of tunnels.
