ShadowCon October 1999: Preliminary Announcement and Call for Proposals

Feb 27, 1999, 22:29 (0 Talkback[s])

ShadowCon Oct 26 - 27 1999
Naval Surface Warfare Center, Dahlgren Va

http://www.nswc.navy.mil/ISSEC/CID/

Please mark your calendars for this DoD sponsored Intrusion Detection and Information Assurance conference and workshop. There will be no charge for attendees, but even though it is free we will make sure it is a high-value two days. Please pass this one to people who would be interested.

Oct 26 will be a vendor show and high quality talks by experts in the field. If you are interested in presenting, please send email to: shadow@nswc.navy.mil

On Oct 27 we will have a workshop from 0800 - 1600. It is entitled "Where's the depth?". This will explore the "last mile" problem in implementing a defense in depth strategy focusing on issues related to instrumenting and protecting desktop computer systems. Once an attacker is inside a facility either by circumventing a firewall, using insider access, or exploiting a backdoor there is little chance they will be stopped or even detected. There are a number of approaches including personal firewalls and host based intrusion detection systems. Even so, we have a long way to go before our desktops are truly a sensor network, or before we can actually protect these systems. Workshop topics will be divided between pragmatic and research solutions and challenges. The workshop is invitation only. There will be a limited number of observer seats for funding agencies, but this is primarily for active participants. If you wish to particpate send a proposal describing what you can bring to the table to shadow@nswc.navy.mil

There may also be a workshop for issues facing Information System Security Managers.

Hope to see you there!

The Shadow Team
