Make IMTOOL public

It would be hugely beneficial for customers and RSA engineering if they knew about imtool. Similarly to ESAtool that 100s of people working with SA/NW love.

 

I was on a webex with engineering this morning and they nearly spent 2 hours to get the results that imtool would have given in less than 2 minutes. I find this a little sad, not to mention time-wasting for both customers and RSA staff.

 

As a workaround and because RSA didn't think that is beneficial enough to share it, I attach it to this post for the benefit of everyone.
