NetKnights goes international


In March, it was time for three of our employees to head off to Pasadena!
Our team visited this year’s Southern California Linux Exhibition from 14-17 March to present NetKnights and our open source software privacyIDEA for multi-factor authentication.

Our colleagues had interesting conversations at the NetKnights booth. Many visitors were surprised and enthusiastic about how flexible and versatile privacyIDEA can be used. In general, our team was able to sensitise visitors to the relevance and advantages of open source software and revise existing prejudices about it.

On Saturday, our founder, Cornelius Kölbel, gave a presentation on "A decade of open source". In his talk, he presented the history of NetKnights GmbH and the associated development of privacyIDEA. He also spoke about his career and personal insights from a decade of entrepreneurship and founding in the field of open source and software development.

The visit to SCaLE was an exciting experience for the NetKnights team. Our team was able to present privacyIDEA and the various product solutions, make new contacts and find out about current trends. We are planning to attend SCaLE again in 2025.


Until then, as an active part of the open source community, we will continue to work on developing innovative solutions in the area of multi-factor authentication with privacyIDEA.
