The Coronavirus Structural Task Force

Haecksen Zur schönen Mary
Andrea Thorn
We are 25 researchers across nine time zones who aim to find out how the coronavirus works - on an atomic level. The virus is made up of molecules and when you understand how they work - bind to a host cell, copy the viral RNA, build new viruses - you can combat the COVID-19 pandemic with drugs and vaccines. This is what we aim to do. Please enter here: https://events.haecksen.org/mighty_mary.html
We usually develop the computational methods with which structural biologists interpret their experiments. When they solve a new molecular structure from Corona, it is deposited online. We, in turn, then download, evaluate, improve and put it into context. Our data were used among others by IBM OpenPandemics, Folding@Home (when it reached 2,4 exaFLOPS) and the EU JEDI Initiative. In the course of our work, we also developed the scientifically most accurate 3D-printable virus model, animated the entry into host cells and inform the public about SARS-CoV-2. Other than in “normal” research projects, we came together without funding but by the power of spontaneous willingness; we are mostly junior researchers and some team members never met in person. However, during the last months, we forged friendships and a research network that spans the globe… ...or as a newspaper wrote "this is what it looks like when geeks save the world".

r3s - RemoteRheinRuhr Talk

r3s - Monheim/Rhein
With approaches dating back to the 20th century, the idea of a TPM is simple: An isolated, constrained environment to offload trust establishment in a larger computing environment. That implies cryptography, firmware, hardware, and per application, different requirements. This talk elaborates on how the seemingly simple concept has been expanded over the years, enumerating implementations in hardware, firmware, other layers of software, and even web browsers, explaining why it is in fact far ...

In den letzten Wochen der scheidenden Bundesregierung erhielt der Sprecher eine Mail von der Open Knowledge Foundation https://okfn.de/en/ über seine Meinung zur Open Source Sicherheit. Daraufhin erstellte er er eine Studie zum Thema Sicherheit von Open Source Projekten. Vier Projekte dienten als Beispiele und deren Hauptakteur:innen wurden befragt. Darunter "the random programmer from Nebraska" https://www.explainxkcd.com/wiki/index.php/2347:_Dependency Ariadne Connill ...

Tokens are a powerful way of controlling the access to to Rest APIs. Chasing them should be hard. Unfortunately, there is a widespread habit of leaving tokens lying around allowing very powerful attack vectors. An attack demonstrates how to hack an OpenShift cluster, which is fully securty compliant to the accepted standards of NIST and CIS. Hijacking a container gives full control to the cluster, including host access. If running in the cloud, the cluster can be used for further attacks, ...
