This is an outgrowth of a document used by UUNET (my former employer)
to sanity check/security qualify equipment for connection to the backbone.
The point of publishing the document is to start discussion. There is
list set up: firstname.lastname@example.org. Subscribe by sending a message to
"email@example.com" with "subscribe opsec" in the body.
The point of the document is to create a useful list that network operators
can use to communicate their securtiy requirements to vendors.
