Next November I will be attending Deepsec in Vienna. Matt Jonkman is giving a workshop there and I will be helping/assisting him with it, it’s called ‘Protocol Analysis for Writing Snort Signatures’. If you’re interested, sign up for it! While we are there we will also host the first brainstorming session for OISF. The idea is to get together with everyone thats interested and talk about how our next generation IDS/IPS should look like. But it’s not just about the technology, we also seek input about how to organize the project, about licensing, etc. So if you’re at Deepsec and got some time to spare, be sure to join us in the brainstorming session!
