Hello Lists,

One of the ideas that's beginning to mature in the commercial
information security space is the fact that sophisticated and successful
attacks happen as part of a team. As a consequence being a misanthrope
who is good a heap exploitation is now weighted more evenly against the
ability to work as part of a team. There used to be this notion of the
lone hacker in a musty basement that was what people thought of when
they imagined who was attacking them. Now thanks to APT (annoyingly
persistent terminology) marketing that is starting to change. The
logistics of compromising, maintaining access, and monetizing the
intrusion into any large company is simply too much for one person to
handle. As penetration testing teams are starting to model this
behaviour there have been demands for increased collaboration tools.

Introduction to Collaboration with CANVAS - https://vimeo.com/121809044

Truthfully these features have been in CANVAS for quite a while but as
someone who occasionally does sales demos and answers support emails,
not many are using them. So we put together a quick video to demonstrate
how all this works in a step by step manner. Combine it with the
installing CANVAS on Linux videos below and you can jump right in to
using CANVAS and collaborating without having a lot of experience on Linux.
