In particular, I hear the term “zero trust” increasingly being applied to APIs, which led to the idea for this post. At the same time, I’ve also noticed what might be called a zero trust backlash, as it becomes apparent that you can’t wave a zero trust wand and instantly solve all your security concerns.

Zero trust has been on my radar for almost a decade,

5G C-band rollout at US airports slowed over radio altimeter safety fears
Tuesday, 28 June 2022 07:00

Acting FAA Administrator Billy Nolen said in a statement this month that its discussions with wireless carriers "have identified a path that will continue to enable aviation and 5G C-band wireless to safely co-exist."

5G C-band operates between 3.7-3.98GHz, near the 4.2-4.4GHz band used by radio altimeters that are jolly useful for landing planes in limited visibility. There is or was a fear that these cellular signals, such as
