Bro Workshop 2009

Update: The workshop has a home page now.

Update: The workshop has filled up already but we have set up a waiting list in case space becomes available.

The Bro team and the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab are pleased to announce the "Bro Workshop 2009", a 2.5-day Bro training event that will take place in Berkeley, CA, on Feb 10-12 2009.

The workshop is primarily targeted at site security personnel wishing to learn more about how Bro works, how to use its scripting language and how to generally customize the system based on a site's local policy.

Similar to the 2007 workshop, the agenda will be an informal mix of tutorial-style presentations and hands-on lab sessions. No prior knowledge about using Bro is assumed though attendees should be familiar with Unix shell usage as well as with typical networking tools like tcpdump and Wireshark.

All participants are expected to bring a Unix-based (Linux, Mac OS X, FreeBSD) laptop with a working Bro configuration. We will provide sample trace files to work with.

The 2009 workshop will be hosted by the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. The registration is now now open. We will soon provide a web site with more detailed location information. To facilitate a productive lab environment, the number of attendees will be limited to 30 people. A nominal registration fee of $50 will be charged.

We also expect to have time for 2-3 case-study presentations from people using Bro in their environments. If you have something interesting to talk about, please contact Robin via mail.
