iPhone Security Hype

Here's some interesting thoughts on iPhone security. Jim Damoulakis says in Computer World that personal devices have already penetrated the corporate network. From that perspective, the iPhone isn't anything new. On the other hand, he says that if your iPhone is more secure than your laptop, then you've bigger security problems than just the iPhone.

Another Computer World article on iPhone security notes that Apple hasn't released a development kit yet for the phone. The article says this raises the bar for hackers, who must take the phone apart and use specialized tools to break into it. In other words, physical hacking takes more work than software exploits, according to the article.
