TIS Firewall Toolkit License


March 5, 1997

PREAMBLE: Trusted Information Systems, Inc. (TIS) has developed the TIS Internet Firewall Toolkit (FWTK), a software kit for building and maintaining internetwork firewalls. Under the terms of this software license the FWTK is distributed in source code form, with all modules written in the C programming language and runs on many BSD UNIX derived platforms. The TIS Internet Firewall Toolkit is the product of TIS and is being made available to you under the terms and conditions of this TIS FWTK software license.


    TIS grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable license for the TIS Firewall Toolkit programs (the "FWTK") and its associated documentation, subject to your acceptance of all of the terms and conditions contained in this software license.

    This license permits you to use, copy, and modify the FWTK solely for the internal, non-commercial, use of your organization.

    The FWTK, if modified, must carry prominent notices stating that changes have been made, and the dates of any such changes.

    All rights not expressly granted herein are reserved to TIS.


    a. You may only use, copy, and modify the FWTK as expressly provided for in this Agreement. You may not redistribute or otherwise make available the FWTK to another person, organization or entity. You must reproduce and include this Agreement, and TIS' copyright notices on any copy and its associated documentation even though said use, as required by this license, is restricted to your internal use only.

    b. The use of the FWTK is limited to your internal, non-commercial use only. Neither the FWTK, in its entirety, nor any part or element of the FWTK, is being licensed to you for use with, or in, any hardware, firmware, software, program or other product (i) which is sold; (ii) for which you receive any revenue; or (iii) which is provided by you (even for free) in conjunction with any commercial activity.

    c. You are prohibited from disclosing to any other person, organization or entity the on-line location of the FWTK source code and/or documentation which will be provided to you following your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this license


    You are solely responsible for maintaining the FWTK and the security of the operating environment in which the FWTK may be used. You are solely responsible for all of your costs and expenses incurred in connection with your use of the FWTK or any application program hereunder, and TIS shall have no liability, obligation or responsibility therefor. TIS shall have no obligation to provide maintenance, support, upgrades, or new releases to you.


    The FWTK and its associated documentation are licensed "AS IS" without warranty as to their performance, merchantability, or fitness for any particular purpose. You must accomplish a substantial amount of development, modification, installation and integration work on your own and with your own technical resources and talent before the FWTK will provide adequate security. The entire risk as to the results and performance of the FWTK is assumed by you. Should the FWTK prove defective, you assume the entire cost of all necessary servicing, repair, or correction of said defect and any consequences of such defect.


    Neither TIS nor any other person who has been involved in the creation, production or delivery of the FWTK shall be liable to you or to any other person for any direct, indirect, special, incidental, consequential, or punitive damages, even if TIS has been advised of the possibility of such damages.

  6. TERM.

    The license granted hereunder is effective until terminated. This license shall automatically terminate without notice if you breach any of the provisions hereof. You may terminate this license at any time by destroying the FWTK, any compiled object code derived therefrom, and its associated documentation.


    a. This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of Maryland.

    b. As stated above, after reading the license and agreeing to abide by its terms, send a one word -- the word "accepted" -- email message to fwtk-request@tis.com. Address all other correspondence regarding this license to fwtk-license@tis.com, or to
