Open Source

Open Source Software

IT Services make use of a great deal of Open Source Software to provide critical services and infrastructure to the University and external organisations. You will find some links to example projects on the right.

Staff within IT Services are involved in several OSS projects as code maintainers, mailing list owners/moderators/subscribers, or other contributory ways.

We are also the home of Kochi, an application designed to mitigate responses to spear phishing.
