This project is not part of the GNU Project.

After report various security bugs to the correspondient authors
of various web projects I decide to create a library that have
support for :

 1.- Detect possible attacks (such as an IDS but at script level)
 2.- Make MORE SECURE web applications (at the moment only with PHP)
 3.- Functions to correctly SANITIZE strings
 4.- Transparent encription
 5.- Control by IP and MAC address

I create only the PHP and Python versions, but versions for Perl, Ruby, ASP.NET (Mono) and JSP will be created.
