Here's information about the next Open Source Software Chicago meeting.
It's also sponsored by Brunswick and JT.  OSS meetings are more often
aimed at a higher level view of topics, and less technically intense.
This means you can bring your boss!


Please join Open Source Software Chicago on Jan.22nd as we bring you
"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.
