I'm afraid I don't understand what your question has to do with the post
you were responding to, but since you asked: I don't know enough about
VMS to have any opinion on it.
In case it was unclear, I wasn't recommending security through obscurity.
I was talking about how to choose among multiple countermeasures, all of
which successfully stop the attack, but at different costs and with different
requirements on the rest of the system.
