    Significance and Use

    3.1 This guide is the first known attempt to focus on security requirements and compare them to available and known technologies capable of meeting these requirements. This guide describes several steps to select the appropriate anti-CADDSS technology. These steps are described in Section 4.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This general guide is intended to assist the user of the guide in selecting anti-CADDSS technologies to protect their product from CADDSS.

    1.2 This guide does not address or evaluate specific anti-CADDSS technologies, but rather suggests a path that assists in the objective evaluation of features of anti-CADDSS technologies available protection of their product from CADDSS.

    1.3 This guide provides a procedure to accomplish the proper selection of a security system. Specific technologies are not addressed, nor are any technologies recommended. There are many security systems available in the public marketplace today. Each has limitations and must be carefully measured against the parameters presented in this guide. Once this careful analysis is done, the user will be in a knowledgeable position to select a security system to meet his needs.
