Middleboxes are essential to the operation and the cybersecurity of networks. With the Middlebox Security Protocol (MSP) set of ETSI deliverables recently published and attracting journalistic attention, these standards are one of the hottest topics coming out of TC CYBER this year. This hackathon will set the scene for MSP: why it’s needed and how it can be used, an explainer of what the standards mean, and demonstrator code for developers to get hands-on and create their own implementations for their use case.
Participate in the ETSI Middlebox Hackathon 2019!
