[ sparse number of security postings lately 8<( - neil ]

The Computer Emergency Response Team Coordination Center (CERT/CC) has
established a new Internet mailing list named CERT-TOOLS.

The purpose of this new mailing list is to encourage the exchange of
information on security tools and security techniques.  The list
should not be used for security problem reports.

The CERT/CC has found that many sites have developed tools and
techniques to improve the security of their systems (e.g. tools to
assist users' selection of passwords that are difficult to guess,
account management techniques, monitors that help detect unauthorized
system access).  Also, several tool developers have expressed an
interest in sharing their work with others.  We hope this mailing list
will spawn new security tool development and allow individual sites to
take advantage of existing work.

The mailing list will not be moderated and the CERT/CC will not
formally review, evaluate, or endorse the tools and techniques
described.  The decision to use the tools and techniques described is
the responsibility of each user or organization and we encourage each
organization to thoroughly evaluate new tools and techniques before
installation or use.

Membership is restricted to system programmers, system administrators
and others with a legitimate interest in the development of computer
security tools.  If you would like to be considered for inclusion,
please send mail to:
        cert-tools-request@cert.sei.cmu.edu
You will receive confirmation mail when you have been placed on the
list.

We ask that the mailing list not be used for file transfers.  If you
have a tool or technique that you would like to share, please mail a
description of the tool or technique to the mailing list and describe
how others can acquire the tool or obtain additional information. The
CERT/CC is planning to collect many of the tools and will make the
archive available via anonymous ftp on the cert.sei.cmu.edu system.

All mail intended to be redistributed should be mailed to:
        cert-tools@cert.sei.cmu.edu

Please feel free to inform other colleagues interested in security
tools and security techniques about this list.  Also, please send
comments, criticisms, and suggetions on this or any other CERT/CC
activity to:
        cert@cert.sei.cmu.edu
