Sandelman Software Works was formally founded in 1996 by Michael Richardson after a number of years of less formal work. Sandelman Software Works does consulting and contracting in TCP/IP networking and Unix systems. The company has done work in network design, network security and network security products. While security is the primary focus, systems internals (specifically device drivers) and software/hardware interfaces are secondary areas of expertise.

Sandelman Software Works is an open source shop
