The Open Source Security Software Hackathon is back. Third edition - 26 March 2018

The hack.lu team organizes the third Open Source Security Software Hackathon on Monday 26 March 2018.

This 1-day Hackathon is dedicated to free/open source software in the field of cybersecurity. The aim is to gather various developer groups to collaborate on challenging programming problems in the field of cybersecurity: from information sharing, network/system forensic, data mining challenges, network/computer exploitation or defense. The objective of the Open Source Security Software hackathon is also to improve the interoperability and exchange between the different security tools

The event is free of charge and will cover projects such as: MISP threatintelligence sharing platform, TheHive, CVE search, AIL, MONARC and Viper framework. This list is not exhaustive. Teams and individuals will be able to propose their own open source projects they wish to work on.

The hackathon will take place in the CIRCL office at the new C3 Cyber Competence Center in Luxembourg.

Open Source Security Software Hackathon

Since 12 years, our team organizes the hack.lu security conference, which brings many security professionals together. We observe that many people and organisations create open source software to support their security activities, ranging from reverse engineering, digital forensic, incident response (DFIR), threat analysis to network security. Many of the security tools are developed on a long-term commitment and they provide viable solutions to improve security globally. In order to support the continuity of innovation, development and integration of such open source security tools, we decided to organise a two-days hackathon in May in addition to our yearly hack.lu conference (16th to 19th October 2017).
