Leading computer security experts -- including Marcus Ranum, Bruce
Schneier, Ian Goldberg, Ira Winkler, Tom Ptacek, and Mudge -- will cover
current technical security vulnerabilities and solutions at the second
Black Hat Briefings in Las Vegas.  Other leading experts speak on wide
ranging topics such as secure coding practices, breaking crypto systems,
making sense of all the security hype, the low reality of Intrusion
Detection Systems, and more.

The Black Hat Briefings conference series was created to fill the need of
computer professionals to better understand the security risks to their
computer and information infrastructures by potential threats.  To do
this we assemble a group of vendor neutral security professionals in the
same room and let them talk candidly about the problems businesses face,
and the solutions they see to those problems.  No gimmicks, just straight
talk by people who make it their business to explore the ever changing
security space. 

- THE 1998 BLACK HAT BRIEFINGS -

How does Windows NT leak information?  What is a good VPN strategy?  How
do you design a secure 32 bit operating system or attack a cryptographic
system?  If you decide to go after a computer criminal how is evidence
treated differently because it is virtual in nature?

HIGHLIGHTS

  = Meet the technical experts who not only identify new security
    problems but help design their solutions.

  = Talk with some of the leading thinkers in the security space.

  = The security vulnerabilities of UN*X, Windows NT, and Novell are
    explained and strategies for dealing with them presented.

  = A "Meet the Enemy" and "Meet the Fed" panel exposes the
     different sides of the security puzzle.  Audience interaction and
     a lively atmosphere will make these events memorable.

  = What threats are on the horizon, and how do you prepare for them now?
