GSoC 2017: First Month Progress

GSoC Logo

At the end of February we were very happy to announce that The Honeynet Project had once again been selected to be a mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code (GSoC) 2017. Since then, there has a been a flurry of activity: We received more than 50 project proposals during the application phase, selected 14 fantastic students, set them up to work with us during the community bonding period, and now completed the first month of actual work! Now that the first tangible results are tickling in, it’s time to take a closer look at our students and see what they have achieved so far. Read more »

GSoC 2016 Wrap Up: Mitmproxy

With Google Summer of Code (GSoC) 2017 being around the corner, we’d like to do a short flashback to 2016, our most successful GSoC year for mitmproxy so far! GSoC 2016 was mitmproxy’s fourth time participating in the program under the umbrella of the Honeynet Project. For the first time, we were able to mentor three students over the summer to work on both our Python core and the brand new web interface. As a major milestone, mitmproxy is now a Python 3 project and has a fantastic user interface that even works on Windows. Read more »

mitmproxy: HTTP/2 Support and GSoC 2016

HTTP2 Support for mitmproxy
We are happy to announce the immediate availability of mitmproxy 0.16! As a major new feature, Thomas Kriechbaumer – who joined us as a Google Summer of Code (GSoC) Student last year – contributed a brand new HTTP/2 implementation built on top of hyper-h2. HTTP/2 requests now blend into the mitmproxy UI just like regular HTTP 1 requests, making mitmproxy the first interactive HTTPS proxy with HTTP/2 support! All HTTP/2 features from RFC7540 are supported - including PUSH_PROMISE, RST_STREAM, and as many concurrent streams as you want. We are super excited about the improvements Thomas is bringing us here and we encourage you to try them out. To make a transition as seamless as possible, HTTP/2 needs to be enabled manually for now by passing --http2 to mitmproxy. We plan to remove this requirement with one of the next releases. For a full list of changes, take a look at the changelog posted below!

Google Summer of Code 2016

2012 was a big year for me - being only just out of my freshman year, Honeynet accepted my application as a GSoC Student and I got introduced to the world of free and open-source software development and started contributing to mitmproxy. Long story short, I think this program is one of the major reasons why I am now writing this blog post as one of mitmproxy’s core contributors. Last year, I was in the fortunate position to mentor a student myself - we’re super happy that not only Thomas’ project was a great success, but we also gained a very strong new mitmproxy contributor who is contributing well beyond his GSoC.
I am very happy to announce that we are applying under the umbrella of Honeynet as a GSoC Organization this year again. The last six years’ projects have generated long-lasting successes at Honeynet, so we can’t wait to get in touch with students this year again!
