Software Engineering InstituteThe Software Engineering Institute (SEI) is located in the Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA. They publish books on software engineering for government and military applications and practices. They are most famous for the Software Capability Maturity Model, or "CMM", which claims to identify "mature" software engineering.
The SEI is also home of CERT, the federally funded computer security organization. Formerly known as the Computer Emergency Response Team, CERT's work involves handling computer security incidents and vulnerabilities, publishing security alerts, researching long-term changes in networked systems, and developing information and training to help improve security at Internet sites across the country.
