PLUG Hackfests are 3 hour linux security labs from Noon to 15:00 on

the second Saturday of every month.  [Come prepared to learn about a

security tool and then start using it.]

Ethical, legal, social and historic aspects of computer security and

linux testing are covered as we safely investigate the strange world

of computer insecurity from our powerful Penguin perspectives in fine

OSI vantage layer up and down style.  Don't learn to hack; hack to


Network and other facilities generously provided by the Foundation for

Blind Children.


The Foundation for Blind Children is located at 1224 Northern in Phoenix.


The entrance is via the North Door, (just follow the Desert Penguins

signs). Much thanks to Charles for all his assistance while at UAT and

now for volunteering his time and setting up the Foundation and PLUG

in symbiosis to make this training event a success.

Our June agenda is a loose lab for setting up equipment, answering

questions, and evaluating various computer security news items that

affect Linux, play with new tools together, while getting used to our

new facilities.  Feel free to bring your Notebooks, since initially we

will have only 3 desktops available for research.  Wireless is

available on our own isolated network, so we can be assured of

controlled festing and demonstrations.

All festers will sign our acceptable use agreement at the door which

protects the school and fellow festers while also establishing general

guidelines for contests and challenges during lab events.

Join us for a special Presentation NEXT Month (July) on

FreeIPA, an integrated security information management solution by

Presenter: Steven D Kaplan, MSCS, BSEE, CISSP of Waxman Associates, LLC

PLUG HackFests have an ongoing call for presentations.
