We are security researchers looking for volunteers to participate in two

The first is a 6 month study whose ideal participants are sysadmins of
internet-facing Linux devices (preferably hobbyist machines running
services like ftp, stfp, ssh, telnet) who are able to make changes to
service configurations, and can provide us (cleansed) log information on
at least a monthly basis. After the study period is completed we will
compile the data and present our results in a white paper, which we will
circulate to all study participants prior to dissemination to the
media/academic world. If interested please contact: research (at)

The second study is looking for subjects that are responsible for
security/audit for PCI compliant networks, and who use PCI scanning
services to scan their networks for quarterly reports. We would require
a *cleansed* copy of your quarterly scans. During the study, all
participants will be issued pre-release versions of the tool we intend
to build with this data. If interested in helping, please email us at:
