Tumbleweed as a Server OS?

a project by RBrownSUSE

My home server, and my other box hosting https://sysrich.co.uk are both in need of a bit of a refresh While I could be nice and conservative and pick an openSUSE regular release, I'm actually considering using openSUSE Tumbleweed, and fully embracing the 'Servers as Cattle' concept

Chromium/Chrome extension for SSL pinning

an idea by thardeck

Most browsers have more than 100 CA certificates (for example Firefox ~176) and everyone of them can sign certificates for any website. So if anyone of them is hacked, forced by law or just corrupt a man-in-the-middle attack is possible on any SSL connection.

Google Hangouts killer: WebRTC-based video conferencing system

a project by ancorgs

We have some internal systems for videoconferencing like Big Blue Button or OpenMeetings. But in my experience none of them can compare to Google Hangouts, which is still the best free (as in free beer) alternative for videoconferencing with integrated screen sharing. While implementing an alternative to Sqwiggle on previous hackweek, I discovered Janus, a lightweight WebRTC gateway that proved to be a quite capable tool to implement video applications.

Make disk encryption options configurable in YaST installer

a project by AndreasStieger

In the YaST installer, make disk encryption method, mode, key strength, random source etc configurable. The rationale is that user requirements may differ, and we would like to offer some advanced options instead of changing defaults.

Wireless mesh network

a project by chuller

Using an arduino nano, a rf23b (http://www.hoperf.com/rf/fsk_module/RFM23BP.htm) wireless module (or anything like it) and a solar panel to build a mesh network node that can be used to quickly deploy wireless networks. The connection between the nodes will be serial, a endpoint will have an additional wlan module connected so it will be possible to use the mesh network for normal wlan enabled devices.
