Some people think vlan's are a safe way of segmenting traffic.. (wrong).

Some people think hypervisors are a decent way to segment traffic (wrong).

The folks at apple keep a database of each device, with a unique signed key. Should they need access they can input the matching RSA and gain access. This is a good way of doing it. Unique 2048 bit key for each device. Hell HP could have done ROT13 on the serial # of the server or the mac address and most folks wouldn't have had a stink.

the same password for every device is about as dumb as cisco using a fixed hash for passwords.
