Malware evolves quickly for one important reason: Blackhats share! Our
only chance to successfully defend our networks is to out-share them.
The SANS Internet Storm Center's main mission is to facilitate
information sharing. SANSFIRE offers a unique opportunity to share and
discuss your favorite trick with your peers. The "Show & Tell" sessions
will feature brief presentations by SANSFIRE participants and allow for
ample time to discuss the presented ideas. Each Show & Tell session will
feature a different theme:
1. Session: Firewalls
Tips and tricks to get the most out of your firewall and confuse
attackers enough to give up right after the first nmap scan.
2. Session: Intrusion Detection
They made it past the firewall? This session will allow you to show
off kewl IDS signature you are using to figure out what happened.
3. Session: System Hardening
Exploits are typically available before you are able to patch. A
hardened system is one way to protect yourself against the next
0-day. Tell others what special trick you use to protect your system.
