2. Description of work performed during last quarter

A. Activities and findings

We constructed a push mechanism for securely adding developer updates to a repository. We also constructed an example software update system using TUF.

B. Project participants

Justin Cappos (PI)
Justin Samuel (Programmer)
Geremy Condra (Programmer)

C. Publications (individual and organizational)

We received notification of acceptance of a paper on TUF in Computer and Communications Security (CCS) 2010.

D. Outreach activities

None

E. Collaborations

We had detailed discussion with PyPI developers about integration. We built a proof-of- concept integration with PyPI and easyinstall. At this point and time, production integration does not seem to be a wise investment of time.

We continued preliminary discussions with the Raven and Tor developers about integration. The Seattle project agreed to use the TUF updater in its next release.

F. Other Contributions

None
