I will be participating in Google Summer of Code this year with GNUnet. The project is on improving the Rust implementation of GNUnet utils. The primary objective is to add asynchronous IO in a way that is general, extensible and resemble the original GNUnet API. More details can be found here - https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/projects/#6454361462931456
Jeff Burdges is my mentor and I will be working closely with him on this project.
I was accepted for a Google Summer of Code project and will be developing an auctioning library. During the community bonding period I have so far read four papers relevant to the topic, choosen a few algorithms with slightly different properties which I want to implement and reconstructed one of them within the pari/gp CLI (see attachment). I also started with a first draft of the library interface which will be published in a git repository shortly.
The new openssh-7.1p2 release fixes a vulnerability in openssh clients from versions 5.4 to 7.1 which lets a malicious server to read private keys from the clients memory. For more information and mitigation see, http://www.openssh.com/txt/release-7.1p2
The "YBTI/We Fix the Net" assembly" is to be the perfect place at 32c3 for all hackers to do something about replacing today's broken Internet with secure alternatives. We hope to have some talks and panels like in previous years. Details will be posted here closer to the congress, for now, please contact us at email@example.com if you are interested to present your work or organize something practical. Topics include:
Ludovic Courtès presented his vision for future secure operating system distributions using GNU Guix today, including a surprising number of GNUnet references.
“It used to work perfectly, then I upgraded something, and somehow...”. Sounds like a déjà vu? Sometimes feel like software deployment is unpredictable? You think reproducible research demands reproducible software deployment? Ever wondered if you can trust your compiler or the integrity of those binary packages you have downloaded?
