The idea is not new. Several of us created documents in 2006 which
addressed this method, along with moving targets and networks
technologies.  I have also been teaching some of these techniques since
2008. Sadly at the time, no one was interested. So yes, the guidance is
warranted it's about time to see this best practices documented on this

You might also want to look at the implications on VMs, Docker, switches,
overlay network techniques. I have discovered and documented (but not
published) many unpredictable and at time devastating impact on network
