1:15 PM - 2:30 PM Successful Non-Governmental Threat Attribution, Containment and Deterrence: A Case Study  [Session Evaluation]

The Director of the NSA recently commented that in cyberspace it is (a) difficult to deliver an effective response if the attackers identity isn't known, and (b) it is unclear if the government's response to cyber threats and attacks has deterred criminals, terrorists or nations. In a seperate inquiry, the National Research Council asked, "How and to what extent, if at all, is deterrence applicable to cyberattacks on private companies (especially those that manage U.S. critical infrastructure)?" There is at least one successful example of non-governmental threat attribution, containment and deterrence, namely Spamhaus's global anti-spam efforts as used by over 1.4 billion people worldwide, including many Internet2-connected sites. In this case study, we'll describe how Spamhaus addresses issues such as dynamic IP addresses and misuse of botted hosts, and some of the lessons we can take away from their successful efforts to tame at least one application in cyber space.

4:30 PM - 5:30 PM Instrumenting SSH for Intrusion Detection  [Session Evaluation]
  • Craig Lant , Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

In response to a significant reduction in our ability to monitor activity on our systems for security issues, NERSC, LBNL's SuperComputer Division, undertook a project to access and analyze Secure Shell (SSH) related data. This includes authentication data such as user names and key fingerprints, interactive session data such as keystrokes and responses, and information about non- interactive sessions such as commands executed and files transferred. Due to the nature of the SSH protocol, this data is typically inaccessible with traditional network monitoring techniques. However, with a modification to the SSH daemon, this data can be passed directly to intrusion detection systems for analysis. This instrumented version of SSH is now running on all NERSC production systems. This talk will describe the changes we made to the SSH daemon, how we analyze the data with Bro, and show some of the more interesting results from this project.

In this session we will present work undertaken by the CIC Identity Management working group on analyzing security incident response workflows in the context of federated identity management, what the resulting issues are, and the groups suggestion for a initial policy for federations to handle security incident response.

4:30 PM - 5:30 PM Higher Education Experiences with DNSSEC Signing  [Session Evaluation]

As of the start of September 2010, sixteen dot edu's have signed their domains. Many members of the higher education community are interested in learning more about that experience -- was it challenging to get your zone signed? Was it straight forward? Are there any lessons the community can take away from these DNSSEC early adopters? Please join us for this interactive panel session with audience Q&A.
