Outreach activities

We gave presentations at several events on TUF.

We presented a demo on TUF at GEC14. Students in an introductory

security class at NYU Poly experimented with TUF and upPIR.


We integrated with distutils. We have integrated into the Seattle software updater and performed a beta push. We have worked on usability and code stability.

We have explored collaboration with the rack solutions provided by Rick McGeer and Ilia Baldine. While the projects seem too immature to need such functionality, we will produce documentation to clarify how integration may occur in the future.

Other Contributions

Justin gave talks that described TUF (and other topics) at multiple venues.
