18:00 - Golan Brener, Director - B.GRG LTD.

Level: Technological. There will be a discussion of protocols and
Golan will discuss different wireless protocols, their weaknesses,
implementations and ways of protecting and breaking them.
There will be wireless hacking demonstrations, but the bulk of the
lecture will be about the technology itself - and not necessarily just
the protocols and/or vulnerabilities we are all familiar with.
19:20 - We will break for a short recess, as well as for
refreshments and networking between members - hot and cold
drinks will be served.
19:40 - Ofir Liber, adv. Information Security Dept. Manager, Internet
Lecture: The Trojan horse defense.
Level: This lecture will be suited for all levels.
In his lecture, Ofir will discuss the legal defense known as "the
Trojan horse defense". I.e., "I didn't do it! It was the evil hacker
who broke into my PC!".
Ofir will provide with a general overview, legal issues, defending and
prosecuting with that pretense, is it even viable? etc.
Hot and cold drinks will be freely available.
Attendance is free.

Who we are
The Security Forum, hosted by the Tel Aviv University, started when a
few of us talked about there being an (almost) complete lack of
professional and social events on security in Israel which are not
completely commercial and about "sticking products down out throats".
We decided to do instead of complain, and here we are.
In previous meetings we had over a hundred arrivals, varying from
soldiers and students, through programmers and government CSO's, all the
way to CEO's and CTO's of different companies, banks and other
institutions. Some have been part of our community since the 70's and
some are just people who are interested in the subject.
Have a good week,
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
