Well, here's a key phrase from that message:
"Being confident in the correctness of an inadequate security model doesn't help much."
If you can figure out a simple model that both works well and is demonstrably secure, you will gain fame and fortune. However, a great number of people have spent long years working on exactly this problem and there's still no magic bullet. If you're not willing to devote the time needed to create an effective security model then, well, you probably don't need one. Most people don't.
