Has it really been another year already? 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 will once again be applying to be accepted this year as a potential mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code 2011 (note the changed URL for GSoC 2011).
After a few slow days for student applicants everywhere, and some difficult decisions on the final slot allocations for our mentors, the long wait is finally over and the GSoC 2010 official student selections are public. The Honeynet Project are very excited to have received 17 GSoC slots this year (up from 9 last year), so many thanks to Google for their fantastic support again this year.
Student applications for Google Summer of Code 2010 closed at 19:00 UTC tonight, with the usual last minute rush of submissions (but thankfully no timezone confusion this time). We had thought that receiving three student applications in the final minute, including one with 8.4 seconds to spare was cutting it close, but Plan9 apparently had one lucky applicant with 1.23 seconds remaining on the clock! That must set a new GSoC record... ;-)
On March 29th Google officially began accepting applications from students for Google Summer of Code 2010, which the Honeynet Project is very exicted to be participating in again this year as a mentoring organisation. We've recently updated our project ideas page and mentor information and students have until 19:00 UTC on Friday April 9th to apply (you can either chose one of our ideas or propose your own).
Much to the excitement of students all around the world, tonight Google officially announced which mentor organisations have been accepted for Google Summer of Code (GSoC) 2010, and the Honeynet Project are delighted to have been selected as one of 151 such mentoring organisations!

Well, Google Summer of Code 2010 is now officially up and running, with the deadline for organisation applications closing 45 minutes ago. Happily the Honeynet Project's application for GSoC 2010 was submitted on time, so all we can do now is sit back and wait until March 18th to find out if we are one of the lucky organisations selected this year.
Last year the Honeynet Project entered Google Summer of Code (http://socghop.appspot.com/gsoc/program/home/google/gsoc2009) for the first time. We received 9 Google funded student places and also funded 3 more places of our own, all of whom successfully completed their projects in a wide range of areas of open source security R&D. You can find out more in our Google SoC 2009 section of our website (https://www.honeynet.org/gsoc).
The results for Google Summer of Code 2009 are out and the Honeynet Project are very excited to have been allocated 9 official slots by Google. You can view the project selection here:
