The 2011 Annual Honeynet Project workshop was hosted in Paris, France from 21-25 March 2011. For the first time, we included a open public day
. We hope this becomes a permanent fixture, as the feedback from attendees was excellent. The slides for this event can be found here
. As well as the presentations, there was a "Capture the Flag" exercise that was occurring throughout the day.
The Australian Chapter contributed to the workshop by presenting on VOIP security during the public day and a demonstration on creating time animated geographic heatmaps of malicious IP's.
Highlights for me were:
- Learning about the research that many chapters are doing in the mobile malware space, particularly within the Android platform. Mobile malware is one of the Honeynet project's priority research areas.
- Many ideas and feedback on data visualization techniques.
- The growing awareness of the need to mature our data analysis capability, in order to compliment our already impressive data collection technologies.
- The many break-out workshops, including some very productive sessions for our upcoming Google Summer of Code program.
- And of course the food, forging new friendships and refreshing old ones with many HP members from around the globe.
Thanks, and congratulations go to all those Honeynet project members involved in organizing this event, and thanks to the ESIEA Engineering School in Paris for providing the facility.
