Please note that GSoC 2011 has now successfully completed. This content is being retained for reference only.
Having really enjoyed our experience as a successful mentoring organization in Google Summer of Code 2009 and Google Summer of Code 2010, The Honeynet Project is very pleased to announce that we have once again applied to be accepted this year as a potential mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code 2011 (note the changed URL for the official GSoC 2011 site).
The first GSoC 2011 deadline was Friday March 11th, which was the deadline for interested organizations to submit their org application. Although we need to wait until March 18th for Google to officially announce which organizations will be selected to participate, our initial list of GSoC 2011 project ideas is now available. We also have some additional project ideas that we are still reviewing internally and will add to the list once deliverables and mentor availability is confirmed.
As in previous years, this list of proposed project ideas is not definitive, and we are also open to receiving and mentoring interesting and novel project ideas from students too. So if there is a research topic you are interested in working on this summer, please get in touch. If you want to get an idea of the kind of projects ideas we proposed and the accepted projects we ran during GSoC 2009 and GSoC 2010, you can view these here:
You can also find a copy of a recent presentation by our Chief Research Officer David Watson on our achievements during GSoC 2009 and GSoC 2010 here, which hopefully provides a good introduction to the Honeynet Project and our collective activities in recent GSoCs.
While we wait for Google announce which organizations will be selected to participate in GSoC 2011 (fingers crossed for March 18!), if you have any questions, please drop by in our new #gsoc2011-honeynet IRC channel on irc.freenode.net and say "hi" (you may need to idle there for a while before you get an answer to a specific question, as our members do have to sleep and come from timezones all over the world, so please be patient).
We've also started a new public mailing list for interested prospective students to get in touch - see https://public.honeynet.org/mailman/listinfo/gsoc for details. Please sign up if you have any questions about getting involved with the Honeynet Project in GSoC 2011.
Our GSoC 2011 organisational administrators are:
So with East Coast/West Coast US, Europe, Asia and Australia covered we can hopefully offer students and mentors round the clock support this year!
GSoC is not the only way you can become involved in the with honeynet technologies and open source software - check out our current or historic series of forensic challenges. Or learn more about the practical, real world application of honeynet technology in our popular series of "Know Your Enemy" whitepapers, which now include projects and tools output from previous GSoCs students such as PicViz or Conficker.
