Holographic Space-Time Does Not Predict Firewalls
Personally I found the AMPS argument compelling enough that I wrote a paper entitled “The Transfer of Entanglement: The Case for Firewalls” . I can’t prove it, but I think the firewall controversy may eventually turn out to be a false alarm, but one with an extremely interesting lesson.

Next Challenges in Bringing Artificial Immune Systems to Production in Network Security
If one fragment of an IP packet is dropped, then the entire original IP packet must be resent (all fragments). Firewalls and NATs (Network Address Translation) may have trouble processing fragments correctly and in effect drop them.
Steganography in Handling Oversized IP Packets
If the IP fragments are out of order, a firewall may block the non-initial fragments because they do not carry the information that would match the packet filter.
