a little paranoia never hurt anyone.

besides by having an unnumbered interface on the public side it would make it difficult (esoteric for most script kiddies) to enumerate ids systems on the net
work, this is not a method of simple security through obscurity, just a way of limiting my ids boxes from being direct targets for DoS attacks and the like,
 after all detecting such events is one of the reasons why I put them in the first place.

ssl+password works well too, dont get me wrong, I just enjoy sleeping now and again.
