Last week Matt Jonkman announced the formation of the Open Infosec Foundation. This foundation has been grant funded to create a new open source IDS/IPS engine. Together with Will Metcalf and of course Matt himself, I will be working on this. We want this to be a real community effort where there is a role for everyone in the infosec community. Developers, admins, vendors, goverments, research, education, everyone. There is a lot of work ahead, but that should be great fun and very inspiring. So far things are interesting already. The discussion mailinglist is growing rapidly with many ppl from the community and industry. A #oisf IRC channel was created today on freenode. Join us there to participate in discussion about this project!
