Threat Modeling (Part 1)

During this session we will be doing a live Threat Modeling review of the application and collaborate with key “Covid Safe Paths” contributors in helping to improve the security of this opne source innitiative

The new coronavirus pandemic has upended our lives drastically. Borders have been closed, airports, hotels and other businesses got shut, the cultural life has been suspended, schools and other educational institutions have been completely switched to remote mode. These unprecedented measures not only depress people from the phycological point of view, but they also disrupt many economies, resulting in mass job losses and raising the probability of widespread hunger. We all want to get out of the house, to reopen the economy and to feel secure again. COVID Safe Paths is a mobile app for digital contact tracing (DCT) sponsored by nonprofit organisation Path Check and developed by a growing global community of engineers, designers, and contributors. The app is based on research originally conducted at the MIT Media Lab. It builds tools that help communities flatten the curve of COVID-19 together. During this session we will be doing a live Threat Modeling review of the application and collaborate with key “Covid Safe Paths” contributors in helping to improve the security of this open source initiative.
