 Rats in the security world

"The biggest rat is e-mail. How have we put up with our current technology for so many years? E-mail is by nature completely insecure. There's no guaranteed authentication of either the sender or the recipient. Most e-mail traffic is never encrypted as it traverses its way around the Internet. Many e-mail servers still don't encrypt stored messages, and there is no way to ensure that your e-mail isn't bounced, quarantined, rejected, or forwarded on to the wrong person. "
