We are two hackers who run development on the Metasploit Framework and Aircrack-NG. Ask us anything about open source security development!
We (Thomas d'Otreppe and Tod Beardsley) are the primary maintainers of Aircrack-NG, a suite of wireless network auditing tools, and the Metasploit Framework, a penetration testing tool set). Working on security software in public has some unique technical and ethical aspects not often found in other projects, and we're going to be at BSidesLV later this month to talk about the trials, tribulations, rewards, and challenges of producing security software in public. As these projects are open source, anyone can use and contribute to them.
We'd like to talk with the Reddit community (which itself is powered by open source software) about open source security -- think of this as a sneak preview of our material.
Ask us Anything!
Edit I'll peek in on this for a couple more days to answer anything else exciting... but it looks like 4 hours is about as long as this'll go. Thanks everyone! If you're in the security scene, we'll see you in Vegas!
Edit Answered a bunch of day two questions, thanks a ton everyone!
