Apps for Security
Founders: SAIC & SINET
NOTE FROM THE FOUNDERS:
Welcome to the Apps for Security community!
We believe in the positive power that open data, collaboration, and entrepreneurship can have on the safety and security of the Internet community. So, we thought it would be a fun & productive endeavor to create an open event to encourage like minded individuals and organizations to collaborate on applications that can be developed and deployed immediately for everyone's benefit. The goal of Apps for Security is to promote civic engagement, open innovation, and entrepreneurship while making us all safer and more secure in cyberspace.
We're hosting an Apps for Security event in conjunction with the Amphion Forum in Washington DC on Wednesday, June 27th (https://amphionforum.com/washington-dc-meeting/). If you're passionate about Security and the Internet of Things, this is the hackathon for you! Bring your ideas for creating a safer Internet through open data, collaborative innovation, and a dash of entrepreneurship to Apps For Security: Internet Of Things Edition!Wednesday, June 27, 2012, 9am-6pm
FHI 360 Conference Center
Registration Page: http://www.eventbrite.com/event/3727557224
Data Provider Summaries and Registration Information: www.security-innovation.org/apps4sec-data-AMPHION.htm
Some of the data sets and API will be available to you during the event with no pre-registration. However, some of the key data sets (Mocana & DHS) do require pre-registration to access. If you are interested in using them, take a few minutes and REGISTER for their APIs & SDK by COB Friday, June 22th.
* DON'T FORGET TO BRING YOUR LAPTOP!! We'll have WiFi, Power, private LAN to replay synthetic traffic, etc. but you'll need your own rig to do any coding!
ISC2 has authorized members to receive 8 CPEs for attending Apps for Security.Schedule for the day:
|9:00am-10:00am||Welcome, Introductions, & Motivation|
|10:00am-11:30pm||Ideation: Unconference style workshops to flesh out ideas|
|11:30pm-5:00pm||Coding, Designing, Innovating|

If you have ideas for creating a safer Internet through open data, collaborative innovation, and a dash of entrepreneurship then come participate in Apps For Security.
We're looking for developers, data scientists, designers, policy makers, elected officials, students, and of course-- privacy and security practitioners. Regardless of your skills or interest, we're encouraging participation from people and organizations who would like to make a difference in privacy and security online.
If you have a prototype or proof of concept you'd like to work on at Apps for Security, we encourage you to bring the code and invite others to work with you on it.
Stayed tuned to www.appsforsecurity.org for updates over the next few weeks and don't forget to follow @AppsForSecurity :)

- Experimental Research Testbed – The DETER testbed has 550 nodes and is accessible to researchers through the Internet. Users can configure computers with Windows, Linux or a custom image, design a network topology to connect them together, setup an experiment to run over the network and then collect data. The testbed is also used in education and there are a number of courses available on cybersecurity related topics. Logins have been created for the event. http://deter-project.org/
- Research Datasets – The PREDICT initiative provides researchers and developers with regularly updated network operations data sources relevant to cybersecurity defense technology development, including sources that are minimally anonymized. A dataset containing synthesized network traffic will be available during the event. For an overview of all of the available datasets and to sign up for access to them, please visit: https://www.predict.org/
- Secure Protocols – DNSSEC and RPKI are IETF standards that help improve the security of Internet communications. DNSSEC provides security for DNS, which enables the translation of Domain names into IP Addresses. RPKI provides assurance that IP and Routing Addresses are only being used by authorized organization. It helps prevent routing misconfigurations and route hijacking.
There are a number of tools available to help with both protocols:
