OWASP HIVE project is an idea for a learning platform by using some small capable pc to do our bidding.


The issue - to be a hive we need to connect in some kind of secure anonymous cool way! Using TAHOE-lafs as a storage solution we are able to interlock anything we do into the GRID. What’s the GRID? The GRID is a group of Tahoe enabled capable computers (The BeagleBone Black) could be any computer. The idea is to share data across a GRID in a secure anonymous fashion. Using Tahoe-LAFS we can share and distribute project files lots and lots of data all gathered from the GRID.


This learning environment can be used for teaching and proof of concept for projects.
