Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • Mergify - Updating dependencies is time-consuming.
  • acra

    Database security suite. Database proxy with field-level encryption, search through encrypted data, SQL injections prevention, intrusion detection, honeypots. Supports client-side and proxy-side ("transparent") encryption. SQL, NoSQL. (by cossacklabs)

    Being focused on data security, we developed a number of data protection solutions: open source crypto libraries, software for transparent data encryption in databases, verifiable audit logging system, a framework for operations on end-to-end encrypted data, etc.

  • Themis

    Easy to use cryptographic framework for data protection: secure messaging with forward secrecy and secure data storage. Has unified APIs across 14 platforms.

    Now, the real world work starts. We introduce interns to the world of popular cryptographic libraries, help them to make their first OSS contributions, and let them practice with our cryptographic library Themis which provides a high-level crypto API on 14 languages.

  • InfluxDB

    Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time. Manage all types of time series data in a single, purpose-built database. Run at any scale in any environment in the cloud, on-premises, or at the edge.

    List of my talks and workshops: security engineering, applied cryptography, secure software development

    Hey! I'm Anastasiia from Cossack Labs. We are a data protection company and our work is closely related to applied cryptography, both traditional and cutting-edge. Recently, we’ve launched an invite-only cryptographic internship, aimed at computer science students who want to work in the applied crypto space.
