Linux Security Summit 2011
The Linux Security Summit (LSS) is a technical forum for collaboration between Linux developers, researchers, and end users. Its aim is to foster community efforts in analyzing and solving Linux security challenges.
The format of the summit will be:
- Selected brief presentations
- Lightning talks
- Q&A panel sessions
The Linux Security Summit for 2011 will be held on the 8th of September in Santa Rosa, CA, USA. It will be co-located with Linux Plumbers Conference (LPC).
Note that Linux Security Summit attendees and speakers must be registered to attend LPC. See the site for details on registration, travel, and accommodation.
- CFP open: 4th April 2011
- CFP close: 27th May 2011
- Speaker notification: 1st June 2011
- Event: 8th September 2011
The event is open to all registered LPC attendees.
You do not have to be a "security person" to attend -- we're seeking a diverse range of attendees, and welcome the participation of general developers, researchers, operations, and end-users.
There will be several panel sessions in addition to brief, selected presentations, with a strong focus on discussion.
The program committee currently seeks proposals for:
Brief technical talks in 30 minute slots, including at least 10 minutes of discussion (i.e. the maximum length of the presentation alone is 20 minutes). Papers are encouraged, and slides should be minimal.
Presentation abstracts should be approximately 150 words in length.
Panel discussion topics
If you'd like to see an issue discussed in a Q&A style panel, send it in. Note that this may result in you volunteering to participate in a panel.
Topic areas include, but are not limited to:
- System hardening
- Access control
- Integrity control
- Hardware security
- Case studies
- Emerging technologies, threats & techniques
Proposals should be submitted in plain text via email to the program committee at: lss-pc (_at_) ext.namei.org
Everyone planning to attend should join the event mailing list:
Updates and announcements about the event will also be sent to the list.
