Security Architecture Resources

As an information security architect, you rely on past experiences and any resources available to you to guide the recommendation, guidance and designs you create. While there are resources out there, they are less than most disciplines. I just wanted to throw out a few that I highly recommend and have seen in my travels. (Also to have a quick place for myself to find them in a aggregated place). In no way the end all be all list, but some good info.
