I'm all in favor of moving forward on a project such as this. I
m not a coder, but would be happy to help with the documentation and
beta testing. I agree that something more robust and fast moving needs
to be available as most crackers are right there in the game.
I'd also like to have something to show management that could replace
the piece of crap Cisco IDS Event Viewer.
Let me know what I can do to help.
