Last semester I took an introductory course to information security. One of the concepts we touched on was “security by obscurity.” Basically what that means is if no one is aware of something, they can’t possibly break into it. For example, hiding your diary is a form of security by obscurity. Of course, this has it flaws. There is always the possibility that someone could somehow stumble upon your diary by accident.
