NotInHere (3654617) writes "Mozilla has introduced a new program, called MWoS or "Mozilla Winter of Security", to involve university students into security projects. The attending students will write code for a Mozilla security tool during (northern hemisphere) winter. Unlike GSoC, attending it involves no monetary payment, but the student's universities are expected to activlely cooperate and to give the students a credit for their work.
MWoS is a win for all. Students get a chance to work on real-world security projects, under the guidance of an experienced security engineer. Professors get to implement cutting-edge security projects into their programs. Mozilla and the community get better security tools, which that we would not have the resources to build or improve ourselves."
