Head on over to the main GSOC blog to see some updates from a project that I've been mentoring through the Honeynet Project Google Summer of Code (GSOC) 2011 program. It is now half way through the program and while there is still lots of work to do, the results are starting to surface. Have a sneak peak (you'll need chrome or Firefox) at the interactive malware globe prototype while it is still on ogzy's site, and here is a snapshot of it.
Its been great working with my student Oguz Yarimtepe. We've been experimenting with some "out there" ideas, and learning lots along the way.
Also, make sure you check out the other
11 HP GSOC projects. All students passed the mid term reviews and the results so far are really encouraging. It's great to see some useful ideas like Android malware analysis and detection tools, and wireshark snort signature plugins get some rubber on the road.
