UKUUG - the UK's Unix and Open Systems User Group - is pleased to
announce the latest in its series of technical tutorials.  We have
invited Tina Bird, Computer Security Officer for Stanford University,
to the UK to deliver a Logging and Security tutorial in London.

This tutorial will be of interest to system administrators and network
managers responsible for monitoring and maintaining the health and
well-being of computers and network devices in an enterprise
environment.  You will learn about the importance of a network-wide
centralized logging infrastructure, several approaches to monitoring
audit logs, and the types of information and forensics that can be
obtained with well-managed logging systems.

Every device on your network - routers, servers, firewalls,
application software - spits out millions of lines of audit
information a day.  Hidden within the data that indicate normal
day-to-day operation (and known problems) are the first clues that
systems are breaking down, attackers are breaking in, and end users
are breaking up.  If you manage that data flow, you can run your
networks more effectively.

This tutorial will teach you how to build a log management
infrastructure, how to figure out what your log data means, and what
in the world you do with it once you've acquired it.

About the tutor:

Many of you will already know Tina through her work as moderator of
the Log Analysis and VPN mailing lists, and in helping to run
<http://www.loganalysis.org/>.  At Stanford, she works on the design
and implementation of security infrastructure for University systems;
writing Security Alerts for desktop and server machines on the
40000-host network; healthcare information security & HIPAA
compliance; and extending the University's logging infrastructure.
She is the primary Stanford representative for FIRST, the Forum of
Incident Response and Security Teams.
