16th USENIX Security Symposium
August 6-10, 2007
Boston, MA
Early Bird Registration Deadline: July 16, 2007

Dear Colleague,

I'm pleased to invite you to attend the 16th USENIX Security
Symposium, August 6-10, 2007, in Boston, MA. Computer security
today advances at an exceptional rate, as both its operational relevance
and the tension between attackers and defenders continue to grow.
New services, new systems, and new networking architectures
continually add new dimensions to the field and subvert previously
held assumptions. This symposium offers cutting-edge research on
topics that range from Web-based detection through memory
performance attacks.

* The Security training program can help you learn the latest on topics
such as:

-- TCP/IP Weapons School

-- Live Forensics

Experts such as Richard Bejtlich, Dan Geer, Frank Adelstein, and
Golden G. Richard will give you the information, techniques, tools, and
strategies you need to practice effective security today--and tomorrow.

* Don't miss the keynote address by Steven Levy, a senior editor and
columnist at Newsweek, on "How the iPod Shuffled the World as
We Know It."

* The Invited Talks cover a number of timely topics, including:

-- "Windows Vista Content Protection," by Peter Gutmann, University
of Auckland, New Zealand

-- "Exploiting Online Games," by Gary McGraw, Cigital

-- And more...

of subject areas, including privacy, cellular network security, and

* Join colleagues with similar interests for thought-provoking
discussions at the evening Birds-of-a-Feather sessions.
