Security & Privacy

“There is no single solution for keeping yourself safe online. Digital security isn't about which tools you use; rather, it's about understanding the threats you face and how you can counter those threats.” - Electronic Frontier Foundation

And that is why security trainings ought to start with threat-modeling. Identifying the threats you, your application, and/or your organisation face, what risks those threats pose, and where the priorities lie, leads the path towards implementing effective policies and mitigations. Such mitigations can range from very simple policies to in-depth technical means. As the security of the whole depends on the weakest link, both are generally of equal importance. Nomen Nescio offers:

 * Training - from raising awareness within your organisation to speficic security applications and practices.
 * Risk-analysis - analytically identifying threats and determining risk, using OCTAVE/Allegro.
 * Counter-surveillance - implementing mitigations against surveillance, both on a technical and policy level.
 * Pentesting - testing the effectiveness of your security measures.
 * Intrusion detection - automated detection and mitigation of known attack vectors against your application.
 * Hardening - technical mitigations to prevent successful attacks against your application.
 * Forensics and emergency response - security incident and emergency management, incident analysis, clean-up, implementing emergency response mitigations to prevent further escalation, et cetera.

A reduced fee applies for NGO's and educational organisations.

Research & Analysis

Abstract

Given the vast amount of information available online, gathering empirical data for scientific research - not in the least within digital humanities - has to a large degree become a process that can be automated, leading to larger datasets and higher statistical probability. Nomen Nescio has experience assisting with data-mining and analysis in various fields of research.

Research & Analysis

“It was a pleasure to work with [Nomen Nescio] on data-mining FreeBSD's software repository and analysing activity logs” - George Dafermos, TU Delft

Nomen Nescio has a broad experience developing technical tools for academic purposes. These include, amongst others, scraping web-content, log-parsing, code-analysis, bioaccoustics, natural language processing, and graph analysis.

A recent publication in Internet Policy Review shows how tools for graph analysis on a large dataset developed by Nomen Nescio have been used.

 int i;
 printf("I speak: ");
 for(i=0;i<(sizeof(l)/sizeof(l[0]))-1;i++) printf("%s, ",l[i]);
 printf("and %s.\n",l[i]);
 return 0;
}
