DESCRIPTION XML::IODEF - A perl module for easily creating/parsing IODEF Documents IODEF module is a wrapper around XML::Simple, providing an interface designed to simplify the parsing and creation of IODEF documents . IODEF is an XML based standard for the exchange of information related toi computer security incidents typically exchanged between collaborating Computer Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRTs) The interface provided by XML::IODEF is designed to make it very simple to build an IODEF document. XML::IODEF is an modified version of XML::IDMEF. ******* WARNING ******* WARNING ******* WARNING ******* WARNING ******* You'd hence better check that using this version of the module does not break anything in your code (it should not, but, well... you know...) And of course: this is a beta release and has not been thoroughly tested. Please try it out if you can and report success/failure to the author (email@example.com). Use in production systems is at your own risks. ******* WARNING ******* WARNING ******* WARNING ******* WARNING ******* PREREQUISITES Requires XML::DOM and a XML::Parser.
