The Twelve Networking Truths

Network Working Group                                  R. Callon, Editor Request for Comments: 1925                                          IOOF Category: Informational                                     1 April 1996
                      The Twelve Networking Truths
Status of this Memo
   This memo provides information for the Internet community.  This memo    does not specify an Internet standard of any kind.  Distribution of    this memo is unlimited.
Abstract
   This memo documents the fundamental truths of networking for the    Internet community. This memo does not specify a standard, except in    the sense that all standards must implicitly follow the fundamental    truths.
Acknowledgements
   The truths described in this memo result from extensive study over an    extended period of time by many people, some of whom did not intend    to contribute to this work. The editor merely has collected these    truths, and would like to thank the networking community for    originally illuminating these truths.
1. Introduction
   This Request for Comments (RFC) provides information about the    fundamental truths underlying all networking. These truths apply to    networking in general, and are not limited to TCP/IP, the Internet,    or any other subset of the networking community.
2. The Fundamental Truths
   (1)  It Has To Work.
   (2)  No matter how hard you push and no matter what the priority,         you can't increase the speed of light.
        (2a) (corollary). No matter how hard you try, you can't make a              baby in much less than 9 months. Trying to speed this up              *might* make it slower, but it won't make it happen any              quicker.
   (3)  With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is         not necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they         are going to land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them         as they fly overhead.
   (4)  Some things in life can never be fully appreciated nor         understood unless experienced firsthand. Some things in         networking can never be fully understood by someone who neither         builds commercial networking equipment nor runs an operational         network.
   (5)  It is always possible to aglutenate multiple separate problems         into a single complex interdependent solution. In most cases         this is a bad idea.
   (6)  It is easier to move a problem around (for example, by moving         the problem to a different part of the overall network         architecture) than it is to solve it.
        (6a) (corollary). It is always possible to add another level of              indirection.
   (7)  It is always something
        (7a) (corollary). Good, Fast, Cheap: Pick any two (you can't             have all three).
   (8)  It is more complicated than you think.
   (9)  For all resources, whatever it is, you need more.
       (9a) (corollary) Every networking problem always takes longer to             solve than it seems like it should.
   (10) One size never fits all.
   (11) Every old idea will be proposed again with a different name and         a different presentation, regardless of whether it works.
        (11a) (corollary). See rule 6a.
   (12) In protocol design, perfection has been reached not when there         is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take         away.
Security Considerations
   This RFC raises no security issues. However, security protocols are    subject to the fundamental networking truths.
References
   The references have been deleted in order to protect the guilty and    avoid enriching the lawyers.

"Es ging nie um Terrorismus, weil es den Terrorismus nicht effektiv verhindern kann. Es geht keinesfalls um Sicherheit, es geht nicht um Schutz, es geht um Macht: Überwachung dient der Kontrolle. Es geht darum, jeden Moment der Verletzlichkeit zu sehen in jedem Leben, unabhängig davon, ob derjenige ein Krimineller oder eine normale Person ist."
