Protect the White Hat Hackers Who Are Just Doing Their Jobs

The great irony of defending the world against malware is it requires security researchers to, well, mess with malware. This often leads them into gray areas, where something they might consider legitimate investigation or essential software development could, in the eyes of the law, be seen as criminal behavior.

Linux kernel hardners Grsecurity sue open source's Bruce Perens

In late June, noted open-source programmer Bruce Perens warned that using Grsecurity's Linux kernel security could invite legal trouble. "As a customer, it’s my opinion that you would be subject to both contributory infringement and breach of contract by employing this product in conjunction with the Linux kernel under the no-redistribution policy currently employed by Grsecurity," Perens wrote on his blog. The following month, Perens was invited to court. Grsecurity sued the open-source doyen, his web host, and as-yet-unidentified defendants who may helped him draft that post, for defamation and business interference.

How to monitor OpenFlow messages with packet sniffer

OpenFlow was initially introduced in the academia as a way to enable innovation on production networks which had traditionally been built with close and proprietary networking hardware. OpenFlow offloads the high-level routing/forwarding decisions (control plane) from networking devices such as switches, and moves the control plane on to a separate controller. The networking devices then simply forward traffic, as instructed by the external OpenFlow controller. It is the OpenFlow protocol that is used by the OpenFlow controller to program the networking devices.

Top 10 open source Android app development frameworks

Each of these app development frameworks supports HTML5 or JavaScript as well as CSS, and is open source with at least some version of a free app. If you’re developing Android-based games or complex apps with extensive cloud integration, you’ll probably want to seek out native application development tools. These range from the Java-oriented Android SDK and Android Development Tools (ADT) Eclipse plugin to game-oriented engines like Corona to commercial enterprise platforms like the cloud-oriented Monaca toolsuite.
