1. Publishing with the World Wide Web

Alan Emtage (bajan@bunyip.com)
Bunyip, Canada
This course covers the selection and installation of the most popular World Wide Web servers and clients, discusses security issues involved with the Web, and provides detailed information about preparing data for publication in the Web.

Who should attend? Anyone who wishes to publish data in the World Wide Web.

What you will learn: Detailed instructions on selection and installation of WorldWideWeb clients and servers, techniques for analyzing resource requirements, security considerations, and the preparation of text and multimedia information resources for publication in the Web.

In addition he works closely with several groups in the Library community on facilitating the interoperation of Internet and library information systems.

2. IPng: The Next Generation Internet Protocol

Steve Deering (deering@parc.xerox.com)
Xerox Palo Alto Research Center, USA
A new version of the Internet's core protocol, IP, has been developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and is now entering the IETF Standards track. The new IP, known as IPng or IP version 6, is designed to meet the scaling requirements imposed by the explosive growth of the Internet, and to meet the demand for greater functionality at the internet layer, including strong security, automated configuration, and support for multimedia traffic. In this tutorial, the lead designer of IPng will present a detailed walkthrough of the protocol, explaining what it is, why it is, and what role it is expected to play in the evolution of the Internet.

Prerequisite: familiarity with the current version of IP.

Tutorial Instructor: Stephen Deering is a member of the research staff at Xerox PARC, engaged in research on advanced internetwork technologies, including multicast routing, mobile internetworking, scalable addressing, and support for multimedia applications over the Internet. He is present or past chair of numerous Working Groups of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), and a member of the IETF's IPng Directorate. He received his B.Sc.(1973) and M.Sc.(1982) from the University of British Columbia, and his PhD (1991) from Stanford University.

3. Internet: Making the Business Case

Gordon Howell (gordon@ibs.co.uk)
Internet Business Services, Scotland
In their year-end reports, both Newsweek and the US News and World Report rated the Internet as one of the top 10 developments in 1994. The UK Economist suggested that the Internet will be an "indispensible tool" for businesses in the late 90s.

The Internet "gold rush" is on, but where are you likely to strike "pay dirt"? Is it really possible for conventional, non-technical businesses to take advantage of the new electronic media to enhance their business? What are the emerging business "conventions" in use on the Internet?

This tutorial looks at how conventional business processes can be enhanced by the Internet, and considers how to develop new lines of business specifically to exploit the medium. Examples in areas such as customer services, electronic publishing and direct marketing (shopping for users) will be presented.

Tutorial Instructor: Gordon Howell is a founding director of Internet Business Services Ltd, a business consultancy and training organisation based in Scotland. He has co-developed a series of seminars "Internet for Business" currently being run throughout the UK and in other locations in Europe.

He is a consultant to various private and public sector bodies, including the economic development agency in Scotland responsible for developing the "Information Superhighway". Is the founder of the Scottish Internet Business Club, and the Forum for Open Systems, and is a regular contributer to public press and other publications. He has been on the 'net since 1982.

4. Internetworking with ATM (Asynchronous Transfer Mode)

Allison Mankin (mankin@isi.edu)
As more and more people start using the Internet, the traffic increases and need arises for bandwidth. Generation of audio/video data is becoming easier as PCs become ever more powerful, and multimedia traffic will become ever more frequent. ATM technology at 155/612/2,400 Mbps (2.4Gbps) will be used for adding bandwidth to meet these needs. Starting from what ATM is, we will give you insight into how you can use ATM effectively in the Internet.

We will emphasize IP over ATM and end-to-end ATM transmission, although other stacks are discussed. Signalling, the classical IP approach, the Next Hop Resolution Protocol (NHRP), and addressing and routing prospects are among the topics.

A portion of the tutorial will be devoted to practical information on implementation and problem-solving for ATM segments in internetworks today.

Tutorial Instructors: Allison Mankin serves on the Internet Engineering Steering Group, as Area Director for Transport and was a Co-Director for IP Next Generation, producing the recommendation that has lead to IPv6. She has been a designer of Vince. Her published research includes router performance, congestion control, and network measurement.

5. Internet security

Steve Crocker (crocker@cybercash.com)
CyberCash, USA
When companies join the internet, security is a major concern. To address the problem, there are emerging security technologies such as firewalls, proxy servers, PEM (Privacy Enhanced Mails) and a number of encryption schemes such as secure Mosaic/HTTP and secure payment protocols. These new technologies will be described in detail for business applications.

This tutorial is intended for everyone who needs to understand the security issues associated with a connection to the Internet and what technology is available to protect their resources.

Tutorial Instructor: Steve Crocker is a founder of CyberCash, Inc. and serves as senior vice president, Development, responsible for security architecture and the design and implementation of the CyberCash server systems.

He was previously a vice president at Trusted Information Systems, where he led the development effort for the reference version of Privacy Enahnced Mail and managed a variety of network security projects. In prior positions, he was a program manager in the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) and a senior researcher at USC Information Information Services Institute. Dr. Crocker served as the area director for security in the Internet Engineering Task Force for four years and is now a member of the Internet Architecture Board. He has published numerous RFCs and papers in networking and computer security. Dr. Crocker holds a Ph.D in Computer Science from UCLA.
