> Abstract:  SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) & SSH (Secure Shell) are the
> most commonly used tools for securing web transactions and remote
> administration.  But many sysadmins don't fully appreciate how these
> tools work or how best to use them. In this talk we'll discuss the SSL
> and SSH protocols, their shortcomings, the essentials of the OpenSSL
> toolkit and some OpenSSL applications, and SSH servers, clients, tips,
> tricks and limitations.  We'll also have time to share problems,
> solutions and experiences.
> This talk is revised from Peter's well-received presentation to the Colorado
> chapter of SAGE in November, 2001.  The notes from that talk are at either:
> Biography:  Peter is a former Computing Services Manager and Network
> Security Manager for UW's Applied Physics Lab.  Washington was just

> the Witwatersrand (Johanesburg).  He now lives in Denver, Colorado,
> where he works as an independent consultant.
