Name: Oliver Hamm.
Project title: One-time-password (token) based authentication and transactions
Project details: To be added soon! ( Contacting the Mentors )
Synopsis: Enhancing/creating some authentication and transaction protocols based on the one-time pass protocol.
Benefits to Debian: Simply put: you can have walls as thick and high as you want, but if anyone can get the key that opens the door, your castle will fall.
Deliverables: To be added soon! ( Contacting the Mentors )
Project schedule: Brushing up on my cryptography and learning more C++ if needed, getting familiar with the different authentication protocols and figuring out how they can be added to the existing ones.
Exams and other commitments: I have exams until the end of May, and possibly in June depending on the circumstances.
Other summer plans: Apart from turning my keyboard into a steaming pile of burnt plastic and my brain to mush? No.
Why Debian?: "Kali", which is the codename for a Linux distro that evolved from the "Backtrack" series built around computer security testing, is mostly based on Debian, and since I'll be using it for work soon enough I want to know how it really works.
Are you applying for other projects in SoC?: I will be applying to a couple of Wireshark and Crypto Stick projects.
