One project mentored by the Honeynet Project during GSoC aims at improving nebula, an automated intrusion signature generator. There are two critical components in the signature generator: A clustering engine that groups similar attacks into classes, and a signature assembler that extracts common features and selects some of them for the actual signature.

Hello, this initial blog post is used to introduce me and to provide a brief overview of my GSoC Project.
My name is Lukas Rist (my personal blog) and I am currently studying Math and Physics at the University of Kaiserslauter in Germany. This is my first time in GSoC and I will be working with Thorsten Holz on Glastopf, a Web Application Honeypot.
1. Overview -------------------------------
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:
The Honeynet Project is very excited to be a member of the Google Summer of Code. We are sponsoring at least eight GSoC projects and potentialy more, depending on how many other ideas we received. Google has just closed the application period, we are thrlled to see we received 55 applications. Our mentors will spend the next week reviewing and ranking each application. Then, on 15 April Google will select our top applicants. At this time we do not know how many applicants will be allowed in our program, but we are hoping it will be quite a few!
