On May 2nd and 3rd, 2017, around 40 free and open source software developers met in Luxembourg to take part in the first Open Source Security Software Hackathon (OS3 Hackathon). This 2 days event offered the opportunity to the developers to collaborate on various software projects in the information security field.
The hack.lu team organizes the second Open Source Security Software Hackathon right after the hack.lu conference on Thursday 19 and Friday 20 October. This 1,5-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.
On Thursday, the kick off will be given at 6PM and teams will go on until 10PM, followed by a full day on Friday. The event is free of charge and will cover projects previously tackled such as: MISP, CVE search, AIL and Viper. This list is not exhaustive. Teams and individuals will be able to propose their own open source projects they wish to work on.

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).
