It is the foundation of a whole new class of network security that
devices should only communicate if they have a social permission to
do so. The entire IoT mess would stop being a problem if the
vulnerabilities in your printer firmware are no longer relevant
since the printer only talks to people in your social graph.

In the old Internet, if you put a service on a port, anyone can
make use of the vulnerabilities you enabled. In the GNU Internet
it MUST be the norm that you first introduce yourself to the
owner of a device before being able to access its vulnerabilities,
which inevitably will always exist. Result: danger only happens
on a real-life person-to-person level of treason, no more on a 
NSA-bots-against-mankind level.

Understand my point that I also made on several web pages? Security
and sociology have to go hand in hand to fix basic bugs of the net.
secushare makes people the gatekeepers to their technology. It
turns them into real *owners* of the devices they bought.
