I will be taking a leave of absence for some time. I have become too busy to continue development of the aivis project. This is unfortunate considering the possiblities aivis presented for the future of information security, and system administration.

We have finally released the first pre-alpha version of code. It contains everything done up to this point.

The most important thing in this release is the mail parsing scripts and the core functionality of some of the host package. Keep and eye out for the next release as it should provide a great deal of changes from this release, including a complete/almost complete rewrite of all of the java code, as well as the first vulnerability management code.... read more

The A.I.I.V.S project is now building nightly source tarballs. The tarball includes javadocs from all java source code. You can download it from the aivis webpage. We have also put up a java chat interface to our irc channel (#aivis on irc.ircstorm.net). Feel free to stop in and talk to any developers that may be lounging about.
The A.I.V.I.S project team has been formed. We now have a few developers, our web team and a very experience document maintainer.
