I wanted pass along a personal invitation, I hope that you will be able to
attend our next open source software event.

OSS Chicago is sponsored by WDI, a division of Brunswick New Technologies.
Bob Radvanovsky will be reviewing Open Source Software and the impact it
can have in today's business and systems security.  There are so many
different applications out there that are Open Source (no cost) that can
help all of us in today's economy.  We figured the best way to accomplish
this is to collaborate with other businesses and professionals that are
using open source or have the same general interest in Open Source.
Meetings will be held Bi-Monthly with different featured speakers.  More
information about our group and what Open Source is can be found on our
website: http://www.OSSChicago.com .  If you don't feel that this pertains
to you I am sorry for any inconvenience and would ask that you pass it
along to your Information Technology department for review.  If you any
questions or require further information on OSS Chicago, please email me
and let me know.

Thank you for your time.  If you have any questions at all please feel free
to email me or call direct.

Best Regards,

"Effective Security using Open Source Security Tools"

Presenter: Bob Radvanovsky


This presentation will provide an introduction to effective Open Source
tools used for security.  Some of the more obvious tools covered will be:
ipchains/iptables, nmap, ethereal and tcpdump.  Some of the not-so-obvious
tools we will review are kismet, Wellenreiter, snort, and shadow.

Our presenter, Bob Radvanovsky has a long history with systems development
and engineering.  Here is a little more about Bob's background.

Bob Radvanovsky has a background in systems development and engineering,
with recent endeavors in areas of security, specifically in penetration
testing & analysis, risk assessments (policy and site assessment), policy
management (documentation and change control), and secured infrastructure
(intrusion detection systems [IDS], firewalls, proxy servers, et. al).
Bob's passion for computer technology development has spawned a complete
data center at his home, as well as varied presentations on UNIX (or LINUX)
operating system environments, various security tools for LINUX, and open
forum discussions specific to home environment securification.  Bob has
also performed some security work (under contract) for the United States
Department of Defense in an effort to secure some of their environments.
