Title:    Building a secure host

Presenter: Brian Meilak

Brian did his 'sysadm' trade at the Faculty of Information Technology,
QUT Brisbane. He spent 5 years with the faculty, and for the last 5
years, he has been contracting and consulting in the areas of system
administration and Unix/network security.

This month Brian will speak about building a secure host (not just for a
firewall!) with some redundancy. He will be using Solaris as an example.
Looking at issues including:
- why you want a secure host, what benefits it gives you
- software on the system, choices you have to install
- what extra you may need/want to do
- hardware items to consider: mirroring of disks, a tape unit,
  console access
- how simple this is to achieve
- the results of entropy from the work environment on the secure host

All welcome.
