Sources for vendor-agnostic white papers?

In line with my previous post on educating the wayward client on internet security basics, I would like to try to find some sort of white papers or similar content on this subject that are purely educational and are not intended as part of a vendor's sales pitch.

The major sources of white papers on the net seem to be www.itpapers.com (a zdnet thing that contains vendor specific content) and www.bitpipe.com (similar but containing mainly webinars.)

I need some concise written report(s) on this topic.  Even something like a competent undergrad level paper would be OK. I could prepare something myself but as I probably can't bill the time easily it's better to just pay a little for it if needed.

And, I'm sure similar needs will occur in the future.

Resources, please. Anyone?

Thanks.

There could be questions over copyright, but I think you would be able to contact the author if there are problems about simply printing it out.

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! You da man! I checked it out and there are definitely some things there that can break this impasse.

A good general resource is Carnegie Mellon University's Software Engineering Institute, which posts many research documents, post-grad papers and theses at its site, http://www.sei.cmu.edu/publications/publications.html
