Background: I am 21 years old,female, pursuing my B.Tech (I.T) at SSN College of Engineering- Anna University, Chennai(India). I have got 5 years of experience on c/c++. Besides c/c++, good knowledge of java, JS,CSS and HTML. Currently learning php. Involved in competitive algorithms programming. Love to work with Open source projects . I have taken Cryptography course in my previous semester and would like to implement all those i'd learnt theoretically!
Project title:One-time-password (token) based authentication and transactions (applying through OPW and GSoC)
Project details: a more detailed description.
Synopsis: a short description.Debian now has various packages such as wheezy/oathtool and wheezy/dynalogin-server to support token authentication for various use cases. The basic use cases are UNIX logins (using wheezy/libpam-oath or experimental/libpam-dynalogin and OpenID (web based) login using wheezy/simpleid-store-dynalogin. The student will look at adding more depth in this area, here are some possible examples: developing support for Challenge-Response authentication ( CROTP ) in oath-toolkit developing an asynchronous AMQP-based interface for wheezy/dynalogin-server enhancing wheezy/simpleid to create user profiles on the fly using some combination of these technologies to enable a more secure experience with digital currency transactions
Benefits to Debian:a more secure channel for transactions
Deliverables: yet to decide .(will update soon)
Project schedule: again yet to decide on a proper timeline after consulting the mentors.
Exams and other commitments:I could spend about 4 hours a day upto july end(have my GRE on july 24). Later I could commit myself more to this project
Other summer plans:nothing so.
Why Debian?: A user of debian and 2nd most widely used linux OS.
- Are you applying for other projects in SoC? For KDE- project artikulate (through OPW alone)
