	This includes a short biblio and a set of survey questions.


	Comments and corrections are solicited. It is our objective to
finalize this information and send it to MPSA by  10 February so that it
can be posted next weekend.


Comments (on the PDF version):


Page 3: At the end of the first paragraph under "Log Generation and
Availability", you have "... is often required for security purposes,
(audit log), sometimes with alerts ..." - I don't think you meant to put
commas around the parenthetical "audit log"...


Page 3: Paragraph starting with "Although the most secure approach"
doesn't finish the thought. I think combining the first two sentences
makes it clearer, e.g.:


	Although the most secure approach is for devices to continually
send out log information to an external repository as events occur, this
is often neither practical nor justifiable.


Page 7: Question 6 is multiple choice, right?


Page 8: Question 7 could also be multiple choice for a, b, or c... My
recommendation would be to break this into two questions: "If you are
implementing logging, where is it kept?" and "How to you implement
billing?" with "Logs", "Simple copy count", "other", and "not
implementing billing".


Otherwise shaping up very nicely - thanks for working on this, Bill!
