Bro Workshop 2009, the 2nd.

Update: See the workshop's web page for more information.

The Bro team and the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab are pleased to announce a further "Bro Workshop", a 2.5-day Bro training event that will take place in Berkeley, CA, on October 13-15, 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 previous workshops, 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.

This workshop will again be hosted by the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, and it will be located at the Hotel Durant in Berkeley. We will soon provide a web site with more detailed registration and location information. To facilitate a productive lab environment, the number of attendees will be limited to 30 people. A registration fee of $125 will be charged.
