A security mirror (as a mirror serving requests to security.debian.org) is a
machine :
* whose admin is DSA
* real machine not VM
* which as out-of-band access, like IP KVM, iLO
* not firewalled
* redundant disk/PSU/fans
* under warranty or support so that it gets fixed in case of failure

Still, it's a summary of DSA words on previous mails, and DSA has the last word
regarding whether a machine can become debian.org.
