So let me give you some answers.n.runs AG is one of the best pentesting companies here in Germany and tested it.


I figured that much but the sentence in the article is confusing.

Call them, one of the two directors is American.


Uh, ok? Is that fact supposed to impress me?

We are not afraid that somebody steels the code for the Unix OS, but for the control panel software (licenseware) which controls the security functions we have implemented.


And why would the 3 letter agencies been interested in the control panel? It's just a front-end to the actual functions. I'm sure any shadow agency worth it's salt could put together a frontend of their own, if they even need one.

We have no intention of making people scary, we are just selling a secure OS.


The answers in the interview has a pretty scare-mongering tone, especially with the "the shadow agencies of the world are out to get our stuff" spiel.

By the way, Chief Developer was Marc Delling. Laugh, we are going to make our money with it anyhow, we already do.


Good for you. Maybe you have a good product, maybe not, but either way you're not doing it any favors with the hyperbole and scare-mongering tone in the interview.
