Like Walter Cronkite, Mitchell and I play “You Were There”. With all of the hullaballoo lately around the open source IDS wars between Sourcefire and OSIF, I thought it would be cool to give people some historical perspective on this from two people who were there. Mitchell Ashley and I. Back when we were helping to launch StillSecure we were one of the first commercial providers using Snort in our IPS and were one of the first sponsors of the Bleeding Snort / Bleeding Edge communities.
Sit back and relax as Mitchell and I reminisce about those days early in the open source security space. I have also written a recap of this on my Network World blog here.
