So much for cooperation in security
Reminds me of when Google engineer Tavis Ormandy released a zero-day Microsoft vulnerability before Microsoft had the opportunity to patch it -- and the stark contrast that action and Google's nonchalant response to it bore to the Microsoft Vulnerability Research program.

Order of steps
I was very taken by the 'good sense' communicated in this article. My only comment is that for this 5 step approach to really work, the 'BE' steps must come first. In other words, each side must BE trustworthy and each side must BE transparent. Otherwise, the other three steps will never happen.

The root to all of this is humility. If you've lived in any facet of IT for any length of time, you should realize that you cannot and will not ever know it all! It is an impossible task. Openly admitting that to yourself and verbalizing that to anyone else will lead to both trustworthiness and transparency.

The remaining steps could be summarized as seek first to understand and then seek to be understood. Of course, these things all run counter to our natural sense of self protection. Particularly, the protection of our ego(s).

As is so often the case, we are our own worst enemies.
