The UW Rosen/McWilliam Building facility is a secured building. So a SAGE
member will be at the Republican Street entrance until 7:15 P.M. to open
the door for meeting attendees. After that a phone number will be posted
on the door for the SAGE meeting specifically. There is an"internal extensions only phone" at the Republican Street entrance to
allow you to call building extensions. The posted phone number will be
monitored until at least 7:45 P.M. However, please make every effort to

Talk Abstract:

The talk will focus on the installation and use of nmap, nessus and
portsentry. The first two are good for network auditing/scanning. The
latter is decent in defending against the first two. There may even been
an offer to scan some of the attendees systems, if anyone is willing.
Short Bio:

Mark Foster is currently the network administrator at eNIC, which runs the
.cc TLD registry. Before that he helped bootstrap the outdoor
