Lightning Rod Defenses

So I'm on my way back home after a brief day of meetings at SANS Network Security 2008. I'm a little tired from another SANS Security 560 course plus bootcamp in Indianapolis, so I acquired a Redbull drink before leaving. At the Airport checkpoint, I was surprised to find that I already forgot about putting any fluids in my carry-on, and the TSA promptly removed the water bottle I had also put in my bag. Here I am after my flight and realized I had the redbull still. So maybe it's time to dust off the honeypots or any other lightning-rod type defenses when you are thinking about improving your security posture . . .

I haven't forgotten about StegoFS, I still hope to have some releaseable code in the near future. However, I'm not sure how much time I'll have to spend on it between SANS Sydney and SANS San Antonio (and 3 other presentations in California-here).
