The Null Device
Welding the hood shut
It looks like the next version of Microsoft's Windows OS will require all device drivers and kernel-level code to be digitally signed
. This is ostensibly to prevent kernel-level rootkits from installing themselves, though has the bonus feature of adding a ring of steel to the black iron prison the RIAA/MPAA want to build around everything handling their precious intellectual property. Oh, and it will also restrict device-driver development on Windows to those with the resources to pony up for the Verizon digital signature.
