"As a security guy, I've seen the good and bad of OSS and have
concluded that anyone who doesn't think OSS has a place in today's
business or government simply hasn't been paying attention. While
integrating OSS into an organization should never be a casual
decision, the choice to adopt an OSS policy should be made based on
issues, such as business need, reliability, ease-of-use, return on
investment and yes, security. Being too cavalier is certainly
hazardous, but just like when considering a
commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) product, it's important to take a
risk-based approach and do your appropriate due diligence."
