ifmapcli 0.1.1 released
We have released a new version of our IF-MAP command line toolset ifmapcli.
Changes and new features include
new CLI tools for device-characteristic, enforcement-report, location, wlan-information, unexpected-behaviour
use of a new parser for command line arguments: argparser4j
refactored the code to minimize redundancy (and allow to implement future tools in a simpler manner)
Here are some impressions of the Trust@HsH Cebit booth in Hall 7, Booth C28.
Please also have a look at the Cebit news on the SIMU website.

Meet the Trust@HsH team on CeBIT 2014
The Trust@HsH research group will present their work in IT and Network Security on this year’s CeBIT as one of 27 exhibitors of the joint booth of Germany’s federal state of Lower Saxony. Core themes of the joint booth are information security, law enforcement, IT and government solutions.
True to the booth’s motto “We have foresight”, the Trust@HsH research group will showcase their current work in Security Information and Event Management (see SIMU project
) and in visualization of network security (see VisITMeta project).
You can watch a high level demonstration of our open source IF-MAP tools or discuss the nitty details of their concepts or even implementation with our developers who will be present over the entire duration of the fair.
The Trust@HsH team will be happy to welcome you in Hall 7, at booth c28!

Trust@HsH at RSA Conference 2014
The Trust@HsH research group, in person by Bastian Hellmann and Ralf Steuerwald, participated at this years RSA conference in San Francisco (24th-28th February).
Demonstration details (including virtual machines and setup instructions) will be released in the next few weeks.
The conference itself was a perfect opportunity to meet some fellow TCG members and other network security professionals and discuss our approaches and current work, as well as attending talks and panels with security experts like Bruce Schneier, Adi Shamir and Whitfield Diffie.
Here are some general impressions of the city of San Francisco.

New releases of all ifmapj-based software
As we mentioned in our last news about the release of ifmapj 1.0.0, we successfully updated all of our ifmapj-based tools to make use of
All of our Github master branches for the following software were adjusted to use
ifmapj 1.0.0, and therefore use the new package structure (de.hshannover.f4.trust).
VisITMeta (note: as we changed our REST-interface and not adapted the GUI, the GUI
does not work at the moment: will be fixed in early January)

ifmapj 1.0.0 available at Maven Central
ifmapj, our Java library for IF-MAP Clients is now available via Maven Central.
As mentioned in our post about the new name of our research group, we increased the
version number to 1.0.0, as we adapted the package names in all source files of ifmapj to
match the new name of our research group and University.
At the moment, we are working on all our IF-MAP Clients that use ifmapj, to adapt them to
use ifmapj 1.0.0 and therefore also adjust their package structure, so there will be new
releases as well.
So in the near future, when all tools are adapted, all of our IF-MAP Clients can then be
simply build by downloading them from Github and then run
Maven, and ifmapj will be downloaded automatically by Maven like every other dependency.
We will publish a further news item, when adapting all tools is finished.
Until then, you can use and build our tools as before (including manually installing
ifmapj to your local Maven repository).
