Bring Linux memory scanner scanmem/GameConqueror to openSUSE

an invention by sparschauer

All other distributions have scanmem/gameconqueror packages. scanmem is a command line memory scanner to locate variables in memory and GameConqueror is the Python/GTK3 front-end for it which also provides game trainer features. But it is not only a game cheating tool. It can also help testing applications, debugging memory issues, watching variables in memory or it can be used for reverse-engineering. Hackers also use it for things like ping spoofing. As the upstream maintainer of this tool I'd like to bring it to openSUSE and maintain it there.

Add a ncurse UI to wireshark

an idea by aaptel

Wireshark has a CLI program called tshark that can dump the dissectors raw (or xml) output. It would be nice to have complete curses wireshark UI, either by reusing tshark xml output or by making another ui program.

Secure keyboard

an idea by mwilck

This idea was inspired by the recent discussion on the "talk" mailing list about the (in)security of the German ID card. The Chaos Computer Club and other researchers claim that the ID card is insecure. Actual attacks that have been demonstrated are based on keyloggers. Keyloggers might be the biggest security threat for Linux users at this time. Keyloggers are trivial to write for Linux and readily installable, and a keylogger with normal user rights may read root's password. One might ask "Why are we caring about local root exploits at all as long as users run stuff like sudo in X terminals"? Keyloggers can even read the input from devices like the Yubikey.

OTR (Off The Record) plugin development with libotr5 for encrypted chat

a project by whdu

To implement OTR function on IRC client, to make chatting private. pure-python-otr (potr) has lack of maintenance for a long time and been considered as "potentially insecure". So I will call libotr5 directly with C.
