How Xen Manages Security Disclosure

When security vulnerabilities are found in any piece of software, the ideal way to fix them is before the general public or attackers are made aware of bugs. Kurth explained that the traditional wisdom in security is to keep any type of predisclosure list for security as small as possible. In Xen's case, the project went through multiple iterations of its security disclosure process, in an attempt to keep things fair for both large and small vendors. Read more
