The group leader will be responsible for steering or sparking discussion, kicking any overtly disruptive posters, and steering toward a coherent outcome within the timeframes available. This is a pretty low maintenance position so please consider volunteering.
Membership in each working group is open to anyone. These are on separate lists primarily to keep the main oisf lists from turning into spam engines. If you have any interest or anything you might be able to contribute to a discussion please consider hopping on and at least listening to each group.
The groups setup are:
1. IP Reputation
I've taken lead on this group as it's near and dear to my heart. We'll be discussion the categories of reputation to track, methods, feedback vetting, etc.
2. Non-Standard Acceleration
The use of OpenCL or Cuda to accelerate the engine using standard graphics cards and chipsets.
3. Rules Language
This group will discuss the options for a new language in the future, whether the snort syntax would be extendable enough to support our new methods, and how to avoid major divergence. A secondary task will be to discuss whether to and how to offer rule obfuscation for rule writers that have legal requirements to not disclose vulnerability details.
This group will determine whether we need a new portscan preprocessor, and whether it would be feasible to build a new DDoS preprocessor.
You can see all of these lists here along with more detailed descriptions.
We need group leaders for groups 2-4. Please email me directly if you're interested in helping out!
