Re: Executives are allowed to ignore anything they want because they deserve it.

Yeah, I did that reluctantly. I put a lot of thought into it, balancing the pros and cons for my situation, and doing that was the least-bad alternative that I saw.

Unfortunately it puts the Raspberry Pi, which is a device relying heavily on closed source firmware and software, in a position to spy on and modify all traffic leaving and entering your network. At the very least, if MITM is the least bad option, invest in something actually secure in that role -- something with open firmware running a BSD or similar is my recommendation. Otherwise you're just asking for silent intrusion.
