ISECOM (Institute for Security and Open Methodologies)

The Institute for Security and Open Methodologies (ISECOM) is a non-profit organization which provides collective information and tools under open source licenses for free public use. This information is provided via the Internet and through social venues and conferences.

ISECOM had been originally defined as an open source project group called the Ideahamster Organization. The number of projects, government alliances and corporate sponsorships has grown since their start in January of 2001. They have reorganized into an open, non-profit think-tank for developing new, open standards and methodologies largely in security. All standards are open for international peer-review and are regularly updated to meet the demands of new technologies and the processes derived from them.

SILC (Secure Internet Live Conferencing)

SILC (Secure Internet Live Conferencing) is a protocol which provides secure conferencing services on the Internet over insecure channels. SILC superficially resembles IRC, although they are very different internally. They both provide conferencing services and have almost the same set of commands. Other than that, they are nothing alike. SILC is secure and the network model is entirely different compared to IRC.
