Something that you cannot hack, is something without bugs (they dont make a
product hackable for fun...)
So this guy basically said that he would make a hardware firewall, working
as you expect a firewall to work(!)
The chance/risk of having a bug in a hardware is less than having one in
software, so in general, a hardware firewall is better than a software. But,
if you ask any company making hardware firewall, if you can hack their
firewall, they will most likely say no. I would also say that it is
impossible to hack any hardware firewall on the market today, unless you are
really knowledge. But, if the people configuring the firewall have no idea
what they are doing, no firewall in the world can protect them against their
own stupidity. After all, it's hardware, and only does whatever the
administrator tell it to do.
My point of this message is that i would not care if someone marketed their
product as "un-hackable". That is how it is supposed to be, and there is
really nothing new in that.
