    Re:    Free SANS Web Briefing #4: Tuesday, April 6, 1999
    Topic: Comparing Intrusion Detection Systems, ID'Net 99
    Time:  Tuesday, April 6, 1999, 1 pm EST
    Hosts: Stephen Northcutt and Rob Kolstad
    Cost:  Free (with high value)
    One of the questions we received from the March 2 web broadcast (on the
    advanced network scanning tool called nmap) was: "what is the best
    intrusion detection software?" 
    Three weeks ago Stephen was part of a working group to help frame the
    research agenda for the President's Decision Directive 63, which deals
    with intrusion detection.  On the last day there was a discussion period
    with a single hot topic: how to compare intrusion detection systems. 
    This webcast will focus on one approach to this problem, SANS's Intrusion
    Detection Network ID'Net which was operational at the ID'99 conference in
    San Diego and will run again at the SANS Conference (May 7-14 in
    Baltimore, MD).  We will discuss the history and challenges of comparing
    intrusion detection systems and some of the results of this first effort. 
    Guests on the broadcast will be:
      * Simson Garfinkle, co-author of Practical Unix Security who
        demonstrated Sandstorm's TCP Demux network forensic tool and was
        able to capture and analyze the attacks
      * Steve Schall, senior network engineer from ODS, who demonstrated
        his company's network switch which has an integrated intrusion
        detection capability.
      * Paul Proctor, Chief Technology Officer
        at Centrax who showed their new network intrusion detection
        capability on ID'Net and he will discuss his experiences
      * Chris Pettit, a senior network engineer for NCI, who is the chair
        of the next ID'Net in May.
    Should be a great show; hope to see you there!
