ten top open source security tools

An article out of IT Management on Earthweb (hell, I can barely found out what this site is called…it management? earthweb? datamation? I think that’s an ad in the traditional site header slot, but am not sure…ugh!) outlines 10 top open source security tools. While I can usually nitpick something in most lists from unknown sites, I was pleasantly surprised by the well-rounded list presented. Then again, some of these can be fairly easy when you have lists like Insecure.org’s top tools list.

I also am saddened but have to say (almost as a reminder to myself) that I need to someday actually read the Open Source Security Tools: A Practical Guide to Security Applications. Books don’t get younger on their own!
