Members of the Mitigating IoT-Based DDoS project team will participate in IETF 109 Virtual Hackathon on November 9-13, 2020 where they will demonstrate how the MUD-PD tool can help generate Manufacturer Usage Description (MUD) files. MUD-PD is a tool for storing packet capture (PCAP) files to use in manual analysis and automated generation of MUD files. The project team is looking to collect feedback on the usability, efficacy, and desired additional features for MUD-PD. This will be a great opportunity to fix bugs, enable improvements, and develop additional features (see proposed feature list below).
