Pure python TLS implementation - Not done yet...surprisingly I think it's a good idea to have more than one SSL system, Go has TLS as well
Cyberespionage: ‘This Isn’t a Problem That Can Be Solved’ - Eeep, "hunt and kill"
“If you thought the state of cyber defense had become substantially better in the last ten years, you’d be wrong,” he said. “We’ve been waling backward on cybersecurity for more than a decade and we’ll continue to walk backward unless and until we can address the core issues.

osquery - Crazy!
osquery is an operating system instrumentation framework and toolset for *nix based hosts. osquery makes low-level operating system analytics and monitoring both performant and intuitive. osquery exposes an operating system as a high-performance relational database. This allows you to write SQL-based queries to explore operating system data.
Easy to type server names.
