            NAI Labs is sponsoring a Birds-Of-a-Feather (BOF) session at
    the 2001 USENIX Annual Technical Conference to give members of this
    community a chance to meet and discuss ideas in person.  Crispin Cowan
    (WireX), Peter Loscocco (NSA), Amon Ott (RSBAC) and Robert Watson (NAI
    Labs and the FreeBSD Project) have kindly agreed to kick off the
    session with short presentations on their work.  The remainder of the
    session will be a relatively informal event; the specific issues
    addressed will be determined by the participants.  I'd like to invite
    you all to attend.  The posted agenda is as follows:
        Representatives of several Linux and FreeBSD security projects
        will present their work and views on providing new support for
        kernel security extensions.  Presenters will include Crispin Cowan
        (WireX/Immunix), Peter Loscocco (NSA/SELinux), Amon Ott (RSBAC),
        and Robert Watson (NAI Labs/TrustedBSD).  A question and answer
        period will follow.  During this period, all participants will be
        free to introduce issues that they feel are of critical
        importance.  Likely topics of discussion include requirements for
        general policy support, the hook-based implementation efforts
        spawned by the 2001 Linux Kernel Summit, and the future of
        security in the FreeBSD and Linux kernels.
            This BOF should be one of several events of interest to this
    community at the 2001 USENIX Annual Technical Conference.  There are
    five technical sessions with "Security" in their titles.  In one of
    these sessions, Stephen Smalley will be presenting a paper on the
    NSA's Security-Enhanced Linux project, Robert Watson will be
    presenting a paper on TrustedBSD, and I (Tim Fraser) will be
    presenting a paper on LOMAC.  The conference is scheduled for 25-30
    June 2001 in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.  The BOF will be from 8PM to
    10PM on Thursday, 28 June.  More details can be found at .  I hope to see you all there!
