Abstract                : From their home page:
                          Our business is helping software development organizations 
                          establish world class reputations for software quality 
                          through improved practices in software assurance. 
                          RST accomplishes this by inventing and 
                          applying proven 
                          software assurance methods and tools in testing, 
                          reliability, safety, and security of mission and enterprise 
                          critical applications, throughout the development lifecycle.
