ACCU 2010 Security Conference at Bletchley Park

I know this is short notice but thought list members might find this of interest:


ACCU is proud to announce its 2010 Security Conference at Bletchley Park

6 Nov 2010

All the proceeds from this conference will be shared equally between the Bletchley Park Trust and The National Museum of Computing to help with the upkeep of the Bletchley Park site, and to support the Museum.

Each year ACCU organises a one day conference on security to raise money for the Bletchley Park Trust, the body which runs Bletchley Park, the World War II UK cryptography centre where the legendary German 'Enigma' code was first cracked, and for The National Museum of Computing, also housed at Bletchley Park.

The four speakers at this year's conference have now been confirmed, and they are

Bruce Schneier, Whitfield Diffie, Andy Clark and David Khan, all well known figures to those in the programming and security industries.

Bruce Schneier is one of the few people in the security industry whose name is familiar to those outside. A cryptographer and computer security specialist, he is the author of 'Applied Cryptography' one of the standard texts used by progammers working to secure the programs they build. He writes a regular, popular, newsletter, 'Crypto-Gram,' which not only explains the issues in layman's terms, but also alerts readers to new and ongoing security problems. He is currently the founder and chief technology officer of BT Counterpane. His personal web site is http://www.schneier.com/.

Whitfield Diffie is a Cryptographer and a pioneer of public-key cryptography. Together with Martin Hellman he developed the widely used Diffie-Hellman key exchange protocol, which allows cryptograghic keys to be exchanged safely - one of the fundamental problems of cryptography. He was, until recently, Chief Security Officer at Sun Microsystems, and is currently Vice President for Information Security and Cryptography at the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). We were unable to locate a personal web site for Whitfield Diffie - perhaps we shouldn't be surprised!

Andy Clark is an internationally recognised expert on information security and cryptography. He has worked in the field for 25 years and is currently Head of Forensics at Detica. He is a Past President and now a Fellow of the International Association for Cryptologic Research, and a Director and Trustee of The National Museum of Computing.

David Kahn is an American historian of intelligence.  His best known books are The Codebreakers, the first serious history of cryptology, and Seizing the Enigma, the story of how the Royal Navy stole documents from German weather ships to enable Bletchley Park to read naval Enigma.

Last year's speakers were Dr Tony Sale, leader of the team that reconstructed the original code-cracking Colossus machine, Phil Zimmermann of Pretty Good Privacy fame, and author Simon Singh.        
 
All the proceeds from this conference will go to the Bletchley Park Trust and the National Museum of Computing to help with the upkeep of the Bletchley Park site, and to help defray the costs of the Museum.

Root Zone DNSSEC KSK Ceremony 3 Completed

KSK CEREMONY 3

The third KSK ceremony for the root zone took place in Culpeper,
VA, USA on Monday 2010-11-01. The Ceremony Administrator was Mehmet
Akcin. The ceremony was completed successfully.

Video from Ceremony 3 was recorded for audit purposes.  Video and
associated audit materials will be published in 1 to 2 weeks, and
will be available as usual by following the "KSK Ceremony Materials"
link at <https://www.iana.org/dnssec/>.

Ceremony 3 included processing of a Key Signing Request (KSR)
generated by VeriSign, and the resulting Signed Key Response (SKR)
contained signatures for Q1 2011, for use in the root zone between
2011-01-01 and 2011-02-28.

Re: 6UK Launch Event: 11th Nov

An interesting initiative. Will be interested to hear more.

Almost perfect timing to set this up when the IETF is meeting in Beijing thus
precluding attendance at the event by some of the folk leading the technology.
Typing this from a plenary meeting that is discussing v4v6 transition issues and
solutions as well as experience with native v6.

BIND 10 Operational Requirements Survey: Help shape the future of BIND

Dear User Community,

BIND 10 is now in its second year of development, and ISC would like to
hear more from current BIND 9 users about operational needs for BIND 10
as we move toward the more user-facing aspects of BIND 10 development.

This survey will ask about your specific business and operational
environment, what works well for you in BIND 9 and what does not, and
then what aspects of BIND 9 would be critical for you to maintain in
migrating to BIND 10. This data will be used to develop user-facing
aspects of BIND 10 including but not limited to the command line interface.

Your responses will be kept confidential. We would like to contact some
respondents by phone for further discussion, so please indicate if this
is an option for you. Participants in the follow on phone call will
receive a BIND 10 t-shirt as a thank you.

Thank you for your time, and for your support of ISC and BIND.

The survey is at:
http://www.isc.org/announcement/give-your-input-future-bind

Best,

Larissa

And as if by magic, we allocated another /8 today. It's just a shame that it happened after the event. 

This is what's left now:

005/8	IANA			UNALLOCATED	
023/8	IANA			UNALLOCATED	
037/8	IANA			UNALLOCATED	
039/8	IANA			UNALLOCATED	
100/8	IANA			UNALLOCATED	
102/8	IANA			UNALLOCATED	
103/8	IANA			UNALLOCATED	
104/8	IANA			UNALLOCATED	
106/8	IANA			UNALLOCATED	
179/8	IANA			UNALLOCATED	
185/8	IANA			UNALLOCATED

	I wonder how much polluted is 100.100.100.0/24, for sure less that 1.2.3.0/24 but may be more than others.

Well, the 6::UK initiative is aimed at UK enterprises and not the 
technical community. It is intended to try and shake up businesses and 
ISPs to start offering IPv6. Not the same audience as IETF by a very 
long shot. And we hit exactly the audience we wanted. The phone hasn't 
stopped ringing.

Re: 6UK Launch Event: 11th Nov

Yes it was a well staged and judged event. It even had the benefit of a synchronous storm as the storm clouds
gathered and the rain thundered onto the Imagination centre's roof. All adding to the drama of Vint's
warnings on the implications for your global connectivity if you do nothing to prepare for v6!
