you are right. It looks to me like they are  packaging already available 
opensource security auditor tools and making them available with a GUI 
that is useable on the N770/800 form factor screen. Most of these tools 
have a command line interface and I have to assume that much of their 
software development effort was to make the tools more "point and click".

Several of these toolkits (e.g. backtrack) are already available as 
"live-CD's" so I would expect that a "live-MMC" version of such a 
toolkit could also be created and I would be surprised if this company 
were not already working on one for the N800.

Best Regards,


John Holmblad

I think the price tag is high, but it sounds like they have put togeher a good product and if they provide good support as well, then people will definitely pay for convenience.  I cannot off the top of my head think of its uses for law enforcement, but I am sure they exist.

Where I see this company possibly making an interesting device is a version that is nearly the same but includes a dedicated processor for breaking encryption, like those old DES-busters a few years back.  That would be interesting.
