AUUG 2005 - The Conference for Unix, Linux and Open Source
Professionals - has a lot of good Linux and Open Source talks. The
early-bird registration rate has been extended until tomorrow, so
there's still a chance to get discounted registration.
This is the first in a series of previews of AUUG 2005. This week we
are highlighting guest speaker Peter Gutmann. Peter is a researcher
in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Auckland,
where his research interests cover the design and analysis of security
techniques and systems.
A self-confessed professional paranoid, he helped write the popular
PGP encryption package, has authored a number of papers and RFC's
on security and encryption including the X.509 Style Guide for
certificates, and is the author of the open source Cryptlib security
toolkit. In his spare time he pokes holes in whatever security
systems and mechanisms catch his attention and grumbles about PKIs.
Peter will be presenting two papers at AUUG 2005 - one on the
Cryptlib security toolkit and another on Sustainable Open Source

Please note that early-bird registration has been extended to this
coming Friday (September 30)
I look forward to seeing you at AUUG 2005!
peace & happiness,
