Interesting... so, how would that work in practice from Nation/State
sponsored attacks? As in where would you restrict things? You would
restrict, say *.cn?
I like Network/Hardware solutions over software solutions because they
erect physical barriers that have a much higher cost. Bunch of dudes in
a basement can't access satellites or subterranean cables (well, not
easily and at low cost). I think you could really fight things like
IP-theft which seem to be a big focus of the recent attacks by just
"cutting off" the hose.
