Comments: H6.1: Designing (Security) Without Requirements is like Building a Road Without a Route Map to a Destination You've Never Seen.

should i say pet-peeve?

the other aspect is not having done a detailed end-to-end threat and vulnerability analysis and then stating exactly what is trying to be accomplished (it is tempted to make a statement with regard to not knowing something ... that they don't even know that they don't know). related

not only is there the requirement to know what route the road is to transverse ... but there is a requirement to have detailed knowledge of the conditions involved in the route as well as what traffic the road is to carry.

for instance ... is part of the route subject to frost heaves ... and are specific countermeasures necessary. past post discussing frost heaves affecting road construction requirements:

another part of road construction is knowing what kind of traffic will be involved ... for instance past posts discussing that road lifetime construction considerations are related to ton/axle loads for heavy trucks (traffic from automobiles and light trucks can be ignored) ... long winded past thread exploring the subject of heavy truck axle-loads traffic affecting road construction
