The National Institute of Standards and Technology announced a service Tuesday that will enable government and private-sector users to receive personalized security vulnerability notices. The new service, named Cassandra and developed by Purdue University's Center for Education and Research in Information Assurance and Security, builds upon NIST's ICAT searchable vulnerability index. ICAT provides summaries and links to open vulnerability databases available on the Internet.

    Users can log on to the online Cassandra tool to create profiles, defining what versions of software and systems exist on their networks. Those profiles will be stored securely on Cassandra, and users will be alerted by e-mail whenever the ICAT index adds a vulnerability description that fits a user's profile.
