The team organizes an Open Source Security Software Hackathon on May 2nd and 3rd at the University of Luxembourg (SnT) in the JFK Building in Kirchberg.

This 2-day Hackathon is dedicated to free/open source software. The aim is to gather various developer groups to collaborate on challenging programming problems in the field of cybersecurity (from information sharing, network/system forensic, data mining challenges or even crypto-currencies).

“Since 12 years, our team organizes the security conference, which brings many security professionals together. We have observed that many people and organizations create open source software to support their security activities, ranging from reverse engineering, digital forensic, incident response (DFIR), threat analysis to network security. Many of the security tools are developed on a long-term commitment and they provide viable solutions to improve security globally. In order to support the continuity of innovation, development and integration of such open source security tools, we have decided to organize this Hackathon and bring people together”, explains Alexandre Dulaunoy from

The projects already listed: MISP, CVE search, AIL and Viper, are just examples. Teams and individuals will be able to propose their own open source projects they wish to work on.

On each day, doors will be open from 9AM until 6PM. The event is free of charge and open to all projects, developers and contributors who are part of open source projects placed in the security field.
