NetSecL History

At first the NetSecL Project started under the name ISlack and was developed by the time when Yuriy Stanchev (NetSecL Project Leader) was in Germany - the distribution was spread among friends and after a year of usage and testing it was uploaded on on 03-May-2005 18:52. From that point it evolved and became what it is today.
