alternate text

Ingo Bente from Trust@FHH gave a talk on IF-MAP within the scope of the MASSIF meeting at Fraunhofer SIT in Darmstadt, Germany on March 15th 2011.

The MASSIF project aims at developing a new generation Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) framework for monitoring and predicting security relevant incidents. The SIEM framework will be demonstrated in the scope of complex and security-critical systems like the Olympic Games IT infrastructure, a mobile money transfer system, managed enterprise services and critical infrastructures.

tnc@fhh 0.8.2 released

After releasing tnc@fhh Version 0.8.0 and 0.8.1 only internally, tnc@fhh Version 0.8.2 is finally released to the public. The main additions of this release are:

  • Support for VPN-Environments based on the IF-T for TLS protocol, thus allowing tnc@fhh to be used within existing VPN-environments. The release consists of special versions for the AR and the PDP as well as a special extension for PEPs.

  • Compatibility with the tNAC-Components. Special hooks are added to support the XACML-Policy System used within the tNAC-Project.

New versions of irond and irondhcp available!

irond 0.2.0 and irondhcp 0.1.0 are now available for download!

In the last couple of weeks, we made pretty good progress in redesigning our irond MAPS in order to make it, let’s say, more compliant to the IF-MAP spec. Furthermore, we created the first release of our irondhcp MAPC.

irond 0.2.0:

Many changes were introduced since the last release (0.1.1). The most important changes affect the communication layer of irond. This layer does the connection management, authentication, SOAP parsing and the dispatching of IF-MAP operations. The whole layer was rewritten from scratch. It now features parallel processing of IF-MAP operations which should greatly increase the overall performance. Besides the new communication layer, we also made a couple of bugfixes.

irondhcp 0.1.0:

irondhcp is the second stand alone MAPC that we are releasing. It is a JAVA program that is able to monitor the dhcp.leases file of an ISC DHCPD. Based on the leases file, it publish updates or publish deletes ip-mac metadata. Like our first MAPC (irongui), irondhcp also uses Axis for its IF-MAP communication.

You can find the binary and source tarballs in our download section. Any feedback is appreciated. You can contact us via

New versions of irond and irongui available!

We are glad to announce that irond 0.1.1 and irongui 0.1.0 are now available for download. irond 0.1.1 is a bug fix release. We fixed several bugs that were detected during the last weeks, especially at the TNC PlugFest. With irongui, we are happy to provide a visualization tool that can act as a simple MAP 2.0 client. Since the IRON project has officially ended, the development of the software is now carried out within the ESUKOM research project.

Update: The README file was missing in the first version of the irongui packages. This issue is now fixed.
