OpenSEC: Open Security Solutions LaunchesMay 17, 1999, 14:10 (0 Talkback[s])
Thanks to Matthew Franz for this link.
Packet Storm Security and the Trinux: A Linux Security Toolkit come together to form OpenSEC: Open Security Solutions.
Initially only tools index, OpenSEC will continue to add resources to support the development, distribution, and deployment of free and Open Source security tools.
Why another index? - Freshmeat, LinuxApps, et al. are not organized around the core security technologies nor are they maintained by security professionals.
Why another security tools site? - Many of the Classics (COAST, CIAC, etc.) are starting to show their age and do not reflect the latest tool development, especially for Linux.
Why now? - If you follow Packet Storm or BUGTRAQ you already know that development of Open Source security tools has exploded in the last 6 months. Nearly a dozen new or updated security tools are released each week. OpenSEC allows you to keep up.
