Hi Alfman,

thank you for this objective comment.Apparmor was good, but...it is exactly how you write.

Agencies care about it, because we already sell it world wide, and there is no backdoor, there is no weak point in the server, except the one sitting in front of it.

No, I will ask where the source resides and let you all know. We do not bother to bring it up. We sold it silently the whole time. But we said, we can have more success if we make some "Rambazamba" as we say here in Germanistan.

Best Regards
Alexander

Let's try once more:

why would agencies be interested in the configuration front-end, when it's the GPL'ed code running in the kernel that's interesting security-wise?
