Hi all,

Apologies for this summary being so late, but I (a) wanted to take a
little time to catch any possible response and (b) I then got wrapped up

Anyway, my original post was along the lines of:

bad, and what each can do. Needs to cover network, filesystem, etc.,

Of course, I phrased it somewhat more diplomatically than that; I'm just
summarising my original post too.

The I received responses from several people recommending the following
websites as initial exploratory locations:

Thanks to those who responded, much appreciated. After looking around
I've decided to opt for SAINT as an initial method for probing my
systems for network holes, and I'll continue on to evaluate other
filesystem/password security checking systems soon.
