ICAT is free to good home for security check

The ICAT security metabase built last year by the National Institute of Standards and Technology is going into the public domain.

Peter Mell, a computer scientist in NIST's Information Technology Laboratory, said the searchable Microsoft Access database of vulnerabilities and patches is now downloadable for free and can be set to automatically update from NIST's version, at icat.nist.gov.

The ICAT Web site [GCN, Aug. 14, 2000, Page 67] has been averaging 75,000 hits per month, Mell said.
