The UCD Internet Society is proud to present a series of public talks by the
people who bring you OpenBSD, OpenSSH, OpenBGPd and OpenNTPd. These guys are
well known around the world for their multiple contributions to the security
and networking domains. Their software is used in products from many high
profile companies, such as Sun Microsystems, IBM, Microsoft and Cisco.

This is a rare chance to get to see their presentations and ask them your own
questions in Ireland. Certainly not to be missed by anybody who has an interest
in networking or security! Tell everyone you know, friends don't let friends
miss an event of this calibre.

The talks are: 
    * Theo de Raadt  - Exploit Mitigation; reducing vulnerabilities to stop
                       crackers in their tracks.
    * Henning Brauer - OpenBGPd; industrial strength routing, pro-actively
    * Ryan McBride   - Network Randomness; predictability is bad, how to reduce
                     - PF; highly advanced packet filtering.

The talk will take place in Theatre M in the UCD Arts Block, starting at 18:30
Wednesday the 2nd of March 2005. We will be holding a reception after the talks

The talk is FREE and open to everybody.
