ABOUT THE TUTORIAL
__________________

This tutorial will be presented by Danny Smith, Operational Manager of
AUSCERT.  It offers a unique blend of topics opening with more formal
aspects of computer security and applying those aspects to day-to-day
issues, followed by a more practical approach to some solutions to
computer security vulnerabilities.

The formal presentation covers the following issues:

*       Security in General
        Introduction to basic security concepts

*       Changing Nature of Security Incidents
        Latest trends in Incidents faced by many sites

*       Security Policies
        The nature and role of the security policy

*       Authentication
        Authentication schemes - their strengths and weaknesses

*       System Administration Tools
        Some of the more useful tools for systems administrators

*       Checking for Intruders
        Some of the common signs of intruder activity

*       Responding to a Security Incident
        Effective incident reponse

Following this, an examination of the typical configuration of a
strengthened Unix system and network will be undertaken, with detailed
explanations of the reasons and goals of each action.  Audience
participation during this segment is encouraged.

Finally, the tutorial will conclude with a Discussion and Question segment,
where any issues raised by the audience can be examined in more detail.
This session is always lively and covers a wide range of important issues.
Again, audience participation is strongly encouraged.
