Speaker # 1 Jeff Carrell

Jeff Carrell is a frequent industry speaker, freelance writer, and technical lead and co-author on Guide to TCP/IP 4th edition (target release summer 2012). Jeff focuses on IPv6 systems interoperability, and delivers lectures and IPv6 hands-on labs at technical conferences worldwide.

Jeff is also a long-time network systems and security instructor, and course developer to HP Networking, and also provides network consulting services with an emphasis in security on wired, wireless and VoIP networks.

His involvement in the computer industry for 33 years has culminated in the concentration of his endeavors in the internetworking portion of the industry for over 26 of those years. Jeff has enjoyed successful career advancements with several network equipment manufacturers, i.e., Foundry Networks (acquired by Brocade Networks) and HP Networking, as a pre-sales consulting engineer and technical instructor. In an end-user position he has designed mission-critical/high-availability networks.

Presentation Summary: "IPv6 is on my Network...But What Just Happened?!"

Abstract:

During your IPv6 deployment, various unexplained addressing and access issues have started to occur, some of the issues could be:

1) The clients received addresses, then lost them, then received them again, now clients can't communicate.

2) Traffic was being monitored on a specific address and all of a sudden it stopped, now it's on a different address.

3) The clients have an address, can access services on the local network, but cannot communicate to the Internet.

This presentation provides a series of mini-studies about IPv6 Neighbor Discovery Protocol to understand where autoconfiguration functions may be present in the network, why they may or may not be desired, and what could be configured in the network infrastructure accordingly.

An understanding of what is "running on the network", what is configured in the network infrastructure (routers and/or DHCPv6 services), what are the desired operational parameters, and what are the defined functions of the IPv6 standards, are all required to have a successful IPv6 deployment.

The presentation will feature a live IPv6 network, where all of these configuration (and misconfiguration) options will be demonstrated on routers, servers, and clients.

Speaker # 2 Branden Williams

Branden has over fifteen years of experience in technology and information security with a formidable background in the majority of the technologies that drive today’s businesses. After spending the first several years of his career working with education institutions and internet service providers to secure their infrastructures, Branden co-founded an IT consulting business that was later sold to a venture capitalist. He continued in this entrepreneurial spirit and worked with several of their portfolio companies to enable the growth of their business while securing the enterprise. From digging into technical requirements of various solutions to recommending compensating controls for compliance saving companies over $250 million, Branden has practical experience working with global, top named clients.

Branden has extensive experience in Linux, Solaris, and Microsoft Windows (2K/2003) server platforms, and further experience in other operating systems including Mainframe (z/OS), BSDI, HP/UX, AIX, and OS X. From a networking perspective, Branden has experience with Cisco IOS/PIX, WatchGuard, IPTables, Checkpoint, and other technologies, as well as practical deployments of infrastructure to promote efficiency and order where cost and chaos normally exists.

Branden recently was designated as a Fellow of the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) and was also an Adjunct Professor at the University of Dallas’s Graduate School of Management where he taught in their NSA Certified Information Assurance program. He publishes regularly and co-authored a book on PCI Compliance.

Branden’s primary focus is as a CTO at a major security firm, and currently sits on the PCI Board of Advisors. When he is not on the road or looking for a great brewpub, he resides in Flower Mound, Texas.

Presentation Summary: In the past 18 months, a series of highly sophisticated and targeted cyber-attacks across the globe have revealed a seismic shift in the threat landscape. With both private and public-sector organizations, targeted attacks are becoming increasingly advanced and audacious. In March of last year RSA suffered a significant and highly publicized cyber-attack. This presentation will detail the elements of an attack, the lessons learned by RSA, and suggested best practices for continuing to combat Advanced Persistent Threats.
