Huawei Offers 'Complete and Unrestricted' Source Code Access

RedPhoenix Re:Source (255 comments)

True, though they do contract out some of these tasks to cleared third party defence-focused organisations, who definitely DO pay market rates.

With a focus on graduate recruitment, a culture of esprit de corps, access to awesomly cool geeky tech stuff, and good working conditions, and they tend to hang on to people for a fair bit longer than the government pay grades they are saddled with, would normally imply.

The brain drain does happen eventually.. but that's government, unfortunately.

Huawei Offers 'Complete and Unrestricted' Source Code Access

RedPhoenix Re:Source (255 comments)

Yes; some very good people who evaluate products for use within the Oz government and Defence:

However, the process is usually long, often expensive, and generally targets a particular software/hardware combination; bump your version number, and there's potentially a fairly significant re-evaluation required.

Huawei could take advantage of this program now, but would either need to front up some dough, or have a sponsor to guide them through it.

Ask Slashdot: Low-Cost Tools To Track Employees' Web Use?

RedPhoenix The collection side... (384 comments)

The Snare/Epilog open source agents will get you part of the way there; they'll handle the log forwarding side for you. They're coded over the ditch in Oz.

Kiwi syslog might be another step in the process; locally made and supported in NZ; it'll manage the collection side of things, but not the analysis.

From there... sorry - I only have commercial stuff to suggest for the analysis side, so I'll let others bring up some options.
[Disclaimer: I'm a snare developer, so take comments in that context]
