make sure we document how we deal with security problems and provide a way for
users to report such problems without immediately disclosing them to the

I've written a suggested "security process" for how to handle these sort of
problems and I've set up an email alias (libssh2-security_at_haxx.se) with a
closed list of receivers to which suspected vulerabilities can be reported.

The process is my *suggested* approach and I'm interested in feedback and
comments to make sure we all agree on it. It is right now already easily
browsable here:


There should be very few surprises in that. It is basically the same document
I've used in the curl project for many years. I stole it from there with
permission since I wrote the original =)

I'll make it viewable from the web site too in a day or two, depending on the
feedback here.
