We gratefully acknowledge Digital Equipment Corporation's Western Research Laboratory for contributing the Alpha system that made developing and operating Bro at high speeds possible. I would particularly like to thank Jeff Mogul, who was instrumental in arranging this through WRL's External Research Program.

Many thanks, too, to Craig Leres. Bro has benefited greatly from many discussions with him. Craig also wrote the calendar queue and non-blocking DNS routines discussed in § 4.

My appreciation to Scott Denton and John Antonishek for alpha-testing Bro and contributing portability fixes and other enhancements.

Finally, this work would not have been possible without the support and enthusiasm of Mark Rosenberg, Van Jacobson, Stu Loken and Dave Stevens--much appreciated!
