I would say to roll your own binary hardcoded to only hit 1 IP address, and
have it held on a law enforcement approved network under the supervision of
a qualified agent. 0.02

Say for instance one wanted to create an "ethical botnet," how would
this be done in a manner that is legal, non-abusive toward other
networks, and unquestionably used for legitimate internal security
purposes? How does your company approach this dilemma?

Our company for instance has always relied on outside attacks to spot
check our security and i'm beginning to think there may be a more user
friendly alternative.
