"Internet security is a process, not a product. eWeek Labs' Openhack project is designed to help e-businesses make this process work better in complex, heterogeneous computing environments."

"Openhack is an evolution of last year's interactive Hackpcweek.com test, in which we pitted Linux and the Apache Web server against Microsoft Corp.'s Windows NT and Internet Information Server 4 to see how each would fare in a hostile Internet environment."

"With Openhack, we'll be taking the concept of interactive testing a step forward: We invite crackers to take their best shots at the Openhack.com site. Examining the number, type and targets of these attacks will allow us to measure the security -- and vulnerability -- of a variety of computing platforms in a simulated e-business environment."

"The project's public Web server is www.openhack.com, where you can find a log with the latest updates."
