The Honeypot Collection now on Kickstarter
I’m excited to announce the launch of a new collection of Glitch Textiles designs: The Honeypot Collection.
Glitch Textiles is operating 15 honeypot servers worldwide, capturing malware in the wild to bring you this new collection. Each design renders the DNA of malicious software—computer viruses, Trojans, and worms—into woven soft wares.
Honeypots are tools used by security researchers to make a server appear vulnerable to attack. By capturing an attacker’s interaction, operators of honeypots can profile techniques, tools, and methods used as well as collect the malware uploaded.
We’re using these tools to bring you a unique experience and perspective on one of the many hazards of life on the Internet.
This Pre-Order Sale through Kickstarter is also supporting another project of mine related to cyber security: Open Vault. Open Vault is like Comp USA, but for Cyber Weapons. It’s a playful speculative approach to representing cyber warfare as something real, with its own economy; as something that we live with and should care deeply about as the collateral damage impacts us all.
Please spread the word and share with your friends, family, and social networks.
