Wikipedia:WikiProject Computer Security/Article requests

Basic terminologyEdit

I realise that wikipedia is lacking articles on basic (but fundamental, at least according to my point of view) topics, such as attack (I added a specialized article attack (computer)), countermeasure (I added a specialized article countermeasure (computer)), Threat (I added a specialized article Threat (computer)).
Writing the last article I found that most basic terminology cited in authoritative sources as National Information Assurance Glossary, or RFC 2828 is not covered (at no level or in same cases at very start class level) in wikipedia articles. Some example you can find reading Threat (computer) and looking for html comments. I will try to write some myself but I am more than happy if someone can contribute, writing or assessing the articles.

Perhaps it's not in the scope of this project, but I've started a page for keybase in my sandbox. If anyone wants to help, feel free to edit the crap out of it. AManNamedEdwan (talk) 19:41, 1 June 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

FYI, a Keybase article now exists (for anyone else following the pages requested link). -- Yae4 (talk) 15:21, 16 January 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Talking about honeypot systems, there is a page for Kippo, but not yet one for Cowrie which is more actively maintained. It might need a Cowrie (disambiguation) page as well.
