clear_06.jpgThere are a number of security conferences out there. Deciding which ones to attend is no easy task. As part of the advisory committee for SOURCE: Boston, I might be a bit biased, but this is going to be a one of a kind security conference. We don’t want to organize yet another security conference. We realize that security has become more and more of a business concern. The security conference of the future needs to bridge the business and the technology. Therefore, three tracks are offered: business, technology, and application security. With the keynote speakers of Dan Geer and Steven Levy, you can be sure to get some interesting perspectives on security!

See you March 12th to 14th, 2008 in Boston!

New Firewall Book

firewalls_cov.jpgNo news anymore, but still worth a blog entry. Michael Rash wrote a new book on firewalls. His approach is not the traditional one where he looks into firewalls themselves. He explores all kinds of additional tools tat can be used alongside of firewalls to tune them and make them more efficient. I have read part of his book before he published it and I really liked what he was up to. I think the final copy should be on my desk by now. Can’t wait to read it. Here is a link to his Web page:
