Thank you to anyone who voted for me to join the board of the Open Information Security Foundation. They are most famous for their Suricata intrusion detection engine, but I expect additional outputs as time passes. I appreciate those of you who supported my goal to join their board. I will try to provide fair and useful input to the project.
I believe we will have our first board phone call next week. Are there any issues you would like me to raise, or consider for future meetings?
I am personally interested in OISF because I think they bring a level of enthusiasm, openness, and innovation to the open source network security monitoring space, alongside tools like Bro and Snort and others I mentioned in my January post Seven Cool Open Source Projects for Defenders.
OISF is also a US nonprofit, a 501c(3) group, so I like the idea of helping that sort of organization.
