Just a reminder that we will be welcoming Mike Rash to the CALUG meeting
Wednesday, October 13th. 

Title:  Advances in Single Packet Authorization with fwknop


Single Packet Authorization (SPA) solves many of the inherent problems in Port
Knocking implementations, but adoption of both port knocking and SPA has been
slow in the security community.  This talk will try to bridge the gap and
present the latest research into providing a robust and easily deployed SPA
layer for various network services.  Interoperability between Windows, BSD, and
Linux systems will be highlighted, and the new libfko C implementation that
provides SPA communications via a library that can be used within third party
applications will be discussed.  Finally, advanced fwknop functionality such as
anti-fingerprinting measures and the creation of inbound NAT rules will be
demonstrated, and a live example of using SPA to create ghost services to
bypass strict network access control layers will be shown.

See you then!
