I recently asked Generating secret keys with secret keys.
I didn't include any computers, networks, protocols, bits, processors, software code and the like.
Though there there happens to be a tech-related application, I wasn't interested interested in that.
I was interested in the general information security problem being solved. So the question referred to people, agents, etc., in the abstract (sort of like Bob/Mary/Alice...though the problem was somewhat different, so I naturally used different names).
I was told that I should have framed it with technology details, not "a silly story".
Was I off base in not asking about computers and software?
Is "Information Security" (in relation to this site) exclusively computers, servers, clients, and such? Should I only ask about those?
Is it okay to ask Bob/Mary/Alice questions?
