We are happy to report that on March 18, Google accepted the Honeynet Project's GSOC 2010 application. We are now one of the 152 Mentor organizations working busily on project ideas and chatting to prospective students in preparation.
View our current project ideas here, remember that these ideas can come from anyone, so if you have a good idea - please don't be afraid to put it up for consideration (nothing ventured, nothing gained!) We also highlight this is a global effort, students from many countries (including Australia) can participate. Visit the google GSOC FAQ's here, which includes the eligibility requirements.
The next phase of the project is the student application period, which extends through to April 9. View the full timeline here.
Please also drop in our IRC channel #gsoc-honeynet on irc.freenode.net if you have any questions, or are interested in getting involved. We have honeynet chapter members in a good spread of timezones, so there will always be one us to help with queries.
