Thug and the art of web client tracking inspection

A few months ago I read the paper "Technical analysis of client identification mechanisms" [1]. The paper is really interesting and it is really worth investing your time and reading. Just a brief excerpt from the abstract:

Thug 0.6 released!

Thug 0.6 was released just a few hours ago. The most important change introduced during the 0.5 branch was a complete redesign of the logging infrastructure which is now completely modular. This makes adding (or removing) new logging modules extremely easy.

Thug 0.5 and KYT paper

Thug 0.4.0 was released on June, 8th 2012 and a huge number of really important features were added since then. During the last two years I had a lot of fun thinking and designing the future of the project and I'm really proud of what Thug is now. I have to thank a lot of persons who contributed with their suggestions, ideas, bug reports and sometimes patches. You know who you are. Really thanks!

Thug: 1000 commits, 1000 thanks

Two years are passed from the first commit and taking a look at the number of committed patches I realized that right now the patch number 1000 was committed. Let me say it's really impressive realizing it. In the last two years I had a lot of fun thinking and designing the future of this project and I'm really proud of what Thug turned to be. I have to thank a lot of persons who contributed with their suggestions, ideas, bug reports and sometimes patches. You know who you are. Really thanks!

Taking a look at the first submissions, it seems like more time is needed in order to solve the Forensic Challenge 13 - "A Message In A Picture". For this reason we decided to extend the submission deadline to 2013, March 15th.

The Month of the Honeynet Project Tools

Let the "Month of the Honeynet Project Tools" begin!

The idea beyond the MoHPT is quite simple. We would be really glad to involve more and more researchers out there in our research stuff and tools. In order to encourage contributions we are proposing you to dive deep into one of the already existing Honeynet Project tool cited below and contribute with feedback, ideas, documentation and/or code.
