      --29 October & 1 November 2002 Open Source Software Instrumental
      to DOD Security
      A study commissioned by the U.S. Defense Department (DOD) concludes
      that banning the use of open source software would have a devastating
      effect on the DOD's cyber security capabilities. The study, "Use
      of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) in the U.S. Department of
      Defense," conducted by Mitre Corp., recommends creating a list of safe
      open source software, developing policies to encourage broader use
      of open source software and encouraging its use to promote diversity
      and reduce costs and risks of depending on a single product.
