CAcert.org is a community-driven Certificate Authority that issues certificates to the public at large for free.


CAcert's goal is to promote awareness and education on computer security through the use of encryption, specifically by providing cryptographic certificates. These certificates can be used to digitally sign and encrypt email, authenticate and authorize users connecting to websites and secure data transmission over the internet. Any application that supports the Secure Socket Layer Protocol (SSL or TLS) can make use of certificates signed by CAcert, as can any application that uses X.509 certificates, e.g. for encryption or code signing and document signatures.


During Froscon we offer assurances and inform about news at CAcert.

coreboot is an Open Source project aimed at replacing the proprietary BIOS (firmware) found in most computers. coreboot performs a little bit of hardware initialization and then executes additional boot logic, called a payload.


With the separation of hardware initialization and later boot logic, coreboot can scale from specialized applications that run directly from firmware, run operating systems in flash, load custom bootloaders, or implement firmware standards, like PC BIOS services or UEFI. This allows for systems to only include the features necessary in the target application, reducing the amount of code and flash space required as well as reducing the attack surface.

Dante e.V.

Dante is the usergroup for German-speaking TeX and LaTeX users. Founded 1989 Dante supports the development and distribution of TeX.


EasyGPG is a project to improve the user experience of end-to-end cryptography based on OpenPGP for email.


As part of EasyGPG, a new trust model was designed which allows to automate key creation and cert exchange. To allow for better GPG key/certificate discovery and distribution, the existing relationship between user and email service provider (ESP) serves as a basis for the Web Key Discovery (WKD) and Web Key Service (WKS) IETF standards drafts. To make this functionality available to end users, the EasyGPG project implements the email client side for Thunderbird, Kontact Mail and Outlook. Besides that, EasyGPG works on improving the usability for Thunderbird and Kontact Mail by adding comfort options for storing encrypted emails.


The Department of Computer Science at Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences currently is evaluating a rollout of the WKD service as well as improved Thunderbird software to allow all students to communicate easily and securely with professors and staff via GPG-encrypted email.


ElectroBSD ist ein hoffentlich vollständig freies und

Geany is a small and lightweight Integrated Development Environment. 

It was developed to provide a small and fast IDE, which has only a 

few dependencies from other packages. Another goal was to be as 

independent as possible from a special Desktop Environment - 

Geany only requires the GTK runtime libraries. 


The developers continously try to add new cool and useful features 

while keeping the core clean and fast.

Open Roberta Lab

The Roberta Initiative “Learning with Robots” was started more than 10 years ago by Fraunhofer in Germany with the objective to get kids interrested in technology and science by using robotic kits. The project provides a gender sensitive course concept and materials for teachers to run coding classes. The idea of the developement of the Open Roberta Lab is to provide a simple and easy to use programming environment for everybody.


The Open Roberta® Lab is an open source programming environment, developed to introduce kids to program robots and microcontrollers. The software is a web application running in the browser. Users program robots using a Blockly-based graphical programming language called NEPO®. A simulation is available for those who don't have a real robot. Since more than two years <https://lab.open-roberta.org/> is online and had over 40.000 visits in 2016 across 100 countries. 


The backend is written in Java. It provides user management and robot support in the form of an evolving plugin system. Each robot subsystem handles code generation and communication with the robot. As of now the project comes with 6 different robot plugins:

* EV3 LEGO Mindstorms 

* NXT LEGO Mindstorms

* BBC micro:bit 

* Calliope mini

* Bot’n Roll, Arduino-based

* NAO, a humanoide robot


While the software is stable and widely used, we're looking for new ideas, but also help on existing ideas to develop the project further.


OpenProject is a web-based project management software written in Ruby-on-Rails and AngularJS.


The openSUSE project is a worldwide effort that promotes the use of Linux everywhere. openSUSE creates one of the world's best Linux distributions, working together in an open, transparent and friendly manner as part of the worldwide Free and Open Source Software community.


The project is controlled by its community and relies on the contributions of individuals, working as testers, writers, translators, usability experts, artists and ambassadors or developers. The project embraces a wide variety of technology, people with different levels of expertise, speaking different languages and having different cultural backgrounds.

Imagine running your favorite Windows applications and drivers in an open-source environment you can trust. That's ReactOS, a modern open-source operating system!


ReactOS has been written from scratch and aims to be fully compatible with Windows applications and drivers. On top of that, it has adoped a similar look and feel to retain familiarity. The entire source code is available under free licenses.


The unique ability of ReactOS to run applications and drivers written for Windows makes it the open-source operating system with the broadest hardware and software support. Additionally, it is based on the design of the NT kernel, which is known for its scalability, portability and performance. Besides the well-known Win32 support, it also enables additional subsystems like POSIX or the already implemented DOS VDM.


There are many different ways to contribute to ReactOS, even without prior knowledge of the Windows internals. It's best to first install ReactOS in a virtual machine to try it out. Based on your interests and experience, you can then participate as a translator, tester or developer. We also look for developers on a scholarship basis. Just ask us about that at our booth.

Turris Omnia is a unique router. It is powered by Turris OS - free software

based on OpenWRT with a lot of improvements like automatic updates,

collective/adaptive firewall, honeypots, and comfortable LXC integration. The

software is constantly getting better and better and you can contribute to

make it even more awesome (and yours).

The hardware is really powerful. ARMv7 CPU with two cores on 1.6GHz means

smooth gigabit throughput with enough power for much more! Together with 1 or

2GB of RAM and 8GB of eMMC running BTRFS, it can be used as a server not only

at home. Wired connection is supplied by 1Gbit WAN port and 5Gbit LAN ports.

You can extend even the HW thanks to SFP cage for fiber modules, 3x miniPCIe

for eg. Wi-Fi or LTE (SIM slot prepared on board, miniPCIe modem needed),

I2C, SPI, GPIO, JTAG and open serial console header. One of the miniPCIe slots

can be also used as mSATA for upgrading the storage. Connecting standard SATA

drives is also possible via miniPCIe-SATA card. Omnia has internal power

connector prepared for this already so you can make a NAS of Omnia without

any external PSU. Like IoT? Connect your favorite network via miniPCIe card!

WPIA - World Privacy and Identity Association

Auf dem Stand verfolgen wir das Ziel, dem Publikum unseren Verein vorzustellen.

Am 10. Dezember 2016, dem Tag der Menschenrechte, wurde der Verein World Privacy and Identity Association von 17 Personen, die sich über viele Jahre hinweg mit den Themen Sicherheit, Kryptographie, Betrieb einer CA befassen, gegründet.

Der Sitz des Vereins ist Graz, Österreich. 

Die WPIA macht es sich zur Aufgabe, u.a.

zur Erarbeitung und Anwendung von Lösungen beizutragen, mit denen jeder Einzelne seine Rechte auf Wahrung der Vertraulichkeit sowie Wahrung seiner persönlichen Identität und Integrität stärken und durchsetzen kann.

Es gibt dazu eine ständige laufende Präsentation auf einem Bildschirm sowie gedrucktes Informationsmaterial in deutscher und englischer Sprache. Unsere anwesenden Repräsentanten stehen Rede und Antwort.

Wir werden einige gedruckte Exemplare der Satzung in deutsch und englisch bereithalten. Anhand der Satzung können sich Interessierte über die Ziele, die Mittel zur Zielerreichung und die Organe des Vereins informieren. Ein wichtiges Organ stellt die Schiedskommission dar, die im Fall von Streitigkeiten angerufen wird und zu deren Aufgaben die Installation und Begleitung eines schiedsrichterlichen Verfahrens gehört. Die von der UN Commission for International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) ausgearbeiteten „Model Law on International Commercial Arbitration 1985 With amendments as adopted in 2006“ [1] Regeln wurden übernommen und auf unseren Verein angepasst. Da wir uns hier aber sehr eng an die Vorlage gehalten haben, erreichen wir auch die Anerkennung unserer Schiedsgerichtsbarkeit in allen Ländern, die ihrerseits die Regeln von UNCITRAL anerkennen. Zu diesen Ländern gehören neben vielen anderen auch die Republik Österreich und die Bundesrepublik Deutschland.

Wer kann bei WPIA Mitglied werden?

In der Satzung ist eine ordentliche und außerordentliche Mitgliedschaft vorgesehen. Die ordentliche Mitgliedschaft steht allen natürlichen Personen offen. Die außerordentliche Mitgliedschaft steht juristischen Personen offen.

Die Beiträge werden je nach Land unterschiedlich erhoben. Die Beitragsstaffel richtet sich nach der Rangordnung der Weltbank. [2]

Warum gründet der Verein eine Betriebsgesellschaft?

Der Verein ist nach seiner Satzung ausschließlich gemeinnützig tätig. Ein wirtschaftlicher Betrieb kann dazu führen, dass dem Verein die Gemeinnützigkeit aberkannt wird. Das ist zunächst ein rein steuerrechtlicher Grund. Sodann hat die Betriebsgesellschaft eine klar abgegrenzte Aufgabe. Sie kümmert sich um alle rechenzentrumsnahen Tätigkeiten. Das Tätigkeitsspektrum des Vereins ist aber viel größer und weiter gefasst.

Warum gründet der Verein zusätzlich eine Genossenschaft?

Der Markt der CAs ist international komplex und nicht wirklich leicht zu durchschauen. Zum einen haben die CAs mit den Browser-Herstellern gemeinsam ein Forum geschaffen, in dem Regeln zur Erstellung von Zertifikaten definiert werden. Es gibt also nicht nur den RFC 5820! Im CA/Browser (CA/B)-Forum wird zumindest versucht, einen einheitlichen Standard zu definieren. In der Vergangenheit gab es „nur“ den RFC 5820 und dieses Regularium erlaubt nun mehr als das CA/B-Forum. Insbesondere wurde im CA/B-Forum festgelegt, dass Extended Validated Certificates nur ausgestellt werden dürfen, wenn die CA ein Audit bestanden hat und für jeden einzelnen Schadensfall eine Versicherung in Höhe von 2 Millionen Dollar nachweist. Verzichtet die CA auf den Nachweis der Versicherung, muss sie den Betrag von 500 Millionen Dollar in bar und für den Zweck der Schadensbegrenzung bereithalten.

Man sieht an diesen Bestimmungen, dass ein normaler Verein hier gestresst wird. Mit der Errichtung einer Genossenschaft aber haben wir Möglichkeiten, die geforderten Bedingungen nachzuweisen. Damit wird unser Verein auch für kleinere Betriebe interessant.

Halten wir also fest:

Der Verein will allen Menschen helfen, in der digitalen Welt ihre Rechte auf Unversehrtheit, Privatsphäre  und Identität durchzusetzen. Mit einer belastbaren PKI wird hier ein Instrument zur Zielerreichung geschaffen. Die gewählten Organisationsformen dienen ausschließlich dazu, Rechte durchzusetzen. Wir verkaufen keine Zertifikate! Es gibt keinen Zwischenhandel!
