With DECOIT and the University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Hannover, two partners of the ESUKOM project took part at the TCG (Trusted Computing Group) Interoperability Plugfest, that was held from November 15th to 17th in San Jose and was organized by the local company Infoblox.
The main goal of the plugfest was to test the TNC software of different vendors to work with each other. The two participants of the ESUKOM project took part by web conference and remote connection.
DECOIT tested their Snort-IF-MAP client and Android IF-MAP client with different IF-MAP servers, while the University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Hannover tested their IF-MAP server irond with different IF-MAP clients. Despite the protoypical implementation, the results contained successful interoperability as well as discovering still existing problems. As the Snort IF-MAP client is based on the library ifmapj and the other IF-MAP clients still in development within the ESUKOM project are also using this library, they are supposed to gain similar results.
The next plugfest will be held in the first quarter of 2012 at the Fraunhofer Institute for Secure Information Technology in Darmstadt, Germany.
