David has been involved in the security industry for the last 15 years. During this time he has found high-impact and novel flaws in dozens of major Java components.

What projects in OpenDaylight are you working on? Any new developments to share?
I’m currently primarily working on security efforts across all OpenDaylight projects. We’ve now got a strong security response team up and running and the next step is to implement a proactive secure engineering program. This program will aim to reduce the number of security issues in OpenDaylight releases and to aid end users with documentation around security configuration and best practices. If any students are interested in contributing to this effort, I’m proposing an OpenDaylight summer internship project: https://wiki.opendaylight.org/view/InternProjects:Main#Implement_a_secure_engineering_process_for_OpenDaylight.
