The Bouncy Castle Libraries are a collection of APIs in Java and C#. While the project is best known for its Java APIs and their use in Android, what is not so well known is that it has only recently had anyone working on it full time. The talk will look at the history of the Bouncy Castle project, how and why it has transitioned from being "just a hobby" and into (we hope) something "big and professional". David Hook will discuss various experiences in trying to support the project which have led up to the current commercial structure. David will also look at the efforts that have gone into preserving the project as an open source collaborative effort while at the same time trying to make development of the Bouncy Castle APIs sustainable.
