During the review of D13446, Daniel pointed out that the CERT website's Terms of Use appear to prohibit using the rule title and minimal descriptions in our documentation. CERT's legal team has confirmed that our uses are acceptable, and drafted a license agreement that states such. I have verified that none of our documentation replicates the descriptions used in CERT's guidelines, and this patch is updating the license file with CERT's confirmation.
