Bro Workshop 2009

The Bro team and the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab are pleased to
announce the "Bro Workshop 2009", a 2.5-day Bro training event that
will take place in Berkeley, CA, on Feb 10-12 2009.

The workshop is primarily targeted at site security personnel
wishing to learn more about how Bro works, how to use its scripting
language and how to generally customize the system based on a site's
local policy. 

Similar to the 2007 workshop, the agenda will be an informal mix of
tutorial-style presentations and hands-on lab sessions. No prior
knowledge about using Bro is assumed though attendees should be
familiar with Unix shell usage as well as with typical networking
tools like tcpdump and Wireshark. 

All participants are expected to bring a Unix-based (Linux, Mac OS X, 
FreeBSD) laptop with a working Bro configuration. We will provide
sample trace files to work with.

The 2009 workshop will be hosted by the Lawrence Berkeley National
Lab. We will soon provide a web site with more detailed registration
and location information. To facilitate a productive lab
environment, the number of attendees will be limited to 30 people. A
nominal registration fee of $50 will be charged. 

We also expect to have time for 2-3 case-study presentations from
people using Bro in their environments. If you have something
interesting to talk about, please send me a mail. 

Looking forward to a great workshop,
