Bouncing RPC

By Ivan ArceIn the early years of Core Security Technologies, the company not only offered security consulting services, but often was sub-contracted to do R+D for several security vendors. The first and most intellectually rewarding of such contracts came from Secure Networks Inc. (SNI), a Canadian start-up that was developing a network vulnerability scanner named Ballista Network Auditing System. Our contract work for SNI, plus a couple of local security consulting contracts, were largely responsible for the financial viability of Core in its early days and for that I will be always thankful to the SNI team.
