UNIX Security Workshop: October 22
ISC is holding a UNIX Security Workshop for Penn faculty, staff and students on Friday, October 22 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., to explain how to prevent and detect computer break-ins and how to minimize interruptions to work.
This workshop focuses on the security weaknesses of UNIX operating systems and shows how to detect and prevent unauthorized access. It will examine UNIX security holes and discover successful approaches for plugging them, and teach techniques to respond to computer break-ins that will limit how long your system will be shut down and will minimize interruptions to you and your colleagues' work. The first part of the course will cover general UNIX security concepts. The second part consists of breakout groups focusing on specific security features and vulnerabilities of Sun Solaris, SGI IRIX and Linux.
To register for the course, please send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no charge for this workshop.
