Things that are meant to happen in the coming weeks or thereafter

  • The Core Rule Set project will participate at the Cloudfest Hackathon in Germany on March 23 – 25 under the direction of Walter Hop and Christoph Hansen. The idea is to develop rules, rules exclusions and documentation to allow easier integration of CRS for internet hosters. Registration is open.

  • The Core Rule Set project will hold a Community Summit on Tuesday May 28, the day before the OWASP AppSecGlobal in Tel Aviv. This will follow the same format of the Community Summit we did at AppSecEU in London in 2018. Details pending.
  • Swiss Post is runing a public intrusion against its Online-Voting system, that is protected by the Core Rule Set as a first layer of defense. The test runs from February 25 to March 24, 2019.
