More From Bill Arconati (via:TechCrunch)

I spotted a comment from Bill Arconati on a high profile blog, I’m trying to see if he has a blog or website I can link to but so far it doesn’t look like it.


Barco’s Blog

I think Bill Arconati is the son of my Dad’s cousins. To my knowledge, I’ve never met him. It would appear that he started a blog too, although there’s not much content there currently.

I like to think of this as The Arconati-Way-Back-Machine. Version 1.5 of this web site was hosted and was using a modified (but originally default) blogger template called Sand Dollar, created by Jason Sutter.

I used this template as my blog and also for the main site as I built it up, first simply hosted at my earthlink space, and then hosted with Sparky. The template was an orange/cream two-column design which I was fond of, but was popular with many bloggers. I wanted to create something from scratch that reflected me a little bit more, was more flexible and made use of a three-column template.

When Sparky got slammed by some script kiddies from France in the middle of July 2005, the site was down for a few months while the storm subsided and Sparky revamped the server.

I am considering officially naming the current version 2.0. It uses a three-column template and is well styled. Everything in it I designed from scratch, so I am very familiar with it. The background is a marker colored page done by Reese. I’m extrapolating every other color in the page from that mixed up background color set; purple, blue, pink, green and throwing in some white and black for good measure. CSS will be used only, no tables, please.

Uncategorized Moving

The Arconati Web Portal is moving back to a real web host. Up until the DNS change today I make today, the main domain was forwarding onto a blog*spot page at, and our other domain,, was forwarding onto my old Earthlink host at But I am changing both of them today. The home page will most likely be the same as you see it now (minus this post) but will be available directly rather than a redirect.

For those of you that have this page bookmarked, you will want to update your file to point to the right place. We are still deciding what to do with the other domain,, but go to the first page and then look for news from there.

“One Approach to Enterprise Security Architecture” by Nick Arconati

The SANS Institute was established in 1989 as a cooperative research and education organization. Here is one published research whitepaper in the SANS Institute Information Security Reading Room:

One Approach to Enterprise Security Architecture

Nick Arconati

This paper discusses an approach to Enterprise Security Architecture, including a security policy, security domains, trust levels, tiered networks, and most importantly the relationships among them.

The objective of enterprise security architecture is to provide the conceptual design of the network security infrastructure, related security mechanisms, and related security policies and procedures. The enterprise security architecture links the components of the security infrastructure as one cohesive unit. The goal of this cohesive unit is to protect corporate information.
