INET 2004: Strengthening the Net: Building an Open and Trusted Internet

INET 04 - 10-14 May, Barcelona Spain

FIRA BARCELONA, May 10-14, 2004, Barcelona, Spain


Tutorial 1: IPv6

The Internet is based on an end-to-end model, a basic and simple architecture in which nodes communicate as equals. This concept is eroding on the current Internet as Network Address Translation (NAT), private addressing and client-server models predominate. IPv6 will provide solutions to many of these issues and will help take the Internet beyond the web, enabling new applications that depend on scalability that goes way beyond what is possible today.

Tutorial 3: "Emerging Security Technologies. A balanced overview by experts in the field"

Improving information security is critical to the operations, reputation and economic stability of any organization. As an organization's dependency on computers and network communications increases, so does its vulnerability to information security compromises. Almost every week the media reports on new computer crimes, system break-ins, malicious code attacks, and the ever-growing threat of cyber terrorism.

This tutorial presents security concerns with an eye to useful, practical, applicable procedures and policies. Technologies for securing your network against threats from both inside your organization and outside intruders (including the Internet) will be discussed. The tutorial covers preventative procedures, policies and implementations. We discuss security systems, card keys, software, hardware, encryption, abstraction, authentication and other security mechanisms.
