Yep, and I reckon that they could port their security module to the
LSM one within one week. I mentioned it to Peter Loscocco at OLS 2001
at the LSM BOF.

I don't know about GPL and kernel related rights but I can hardly
imagine a company that has a B1 certified product not to care well
about their other products to be on the right side of the law. I
can talk to them on thursday about this at the comdex/orbit showcase.
The outcome of your legality statement might be crucial for their
future business.

BTW, I recall the HP Linux which IMO also violates the GPL then, doesn't
it? http://www.hp.com/security/products/linux/opensource/
Or does this differ in them providing the source code even for the LKMs
as opposite to argus which has binary only LKMs?

> Thanks again.

No problem, regards,
