Information Security for Shared Infrastructure

Security issues are of concern in any software, but most especially in infrastructure software due to its ubiquity and criticality (read: because it’s everywhere, and if it stops working en masse we stop having an Internet). ICEI’s primary software security effort at this time is ISSI, the Information Security for Shared Infrastructure project.

ISSI was launched in May 2015 thanks to generous support from the National Science Foundation and Indiana University’s Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research. ISSI aims to improve the security of infrastructure software we all rely on by providing security expertise and extra manpower to critical software projects in need of help with vulnerability management, security-focused code refactoring, testing, and other areas relevant to security.

If you maintain an open source infrastructure software project that needs help in these areas, please email issi@icei.org for assistance.
