This software is distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License. A copy of this License has been included with the software. Please see the License for warranty and conditions of use.

Software licensing is the subject of much debate among open source developers. Our decision to license Starfish under the GPL is based on the requirement to fully expose this software to inspection, so that you can be free to determine how well it meets your security needs.

Commercial software vendors will sell you convenience, which, although valuable, is not the most important characteristic of security software. Our priority instead is to ensure that you have knowledge. The GPL allows us to guarantee that knowledge in perpetuity.
