    It's just amateur marketing as found in most resumes.  The page with the
    Signal article is technically obscure, the 'SPS' page looking for
    security assessment jobs is by a (inactive reserves?) Marine sergeant,
    not an information security officer.  These guys are just starting out,
    and are new to computer security.
    A theoretical physicist working out of his house and a retired manager
    is not going to be able to build a reliable IDS system on their own, as
    the very experienced elite on this list agree on the lack of total
    trustability of IDS and the most questionable issue of reactive IDS
    systems.  There are no obvious records of involvement of the theorist
    with IDS, firewalls, or computer security lists on the Internet.
    It's better to use a company comprised of experienced information
    security officers (such as Fortified) for security assessments than a
