Defcon; Slashdot

Hello everyone,

When I announced my talk at CanSecWest earlier this year, several
people complained that they couldn't afford (or didn't want to spend)
$1500 to attend a conference.  This is especially a problem for
hobbyists with no commercial backing.  So I have decided to speak on
Advanced Network Reconnaissance Techniques at Defcon 11 
( http://www.defcon.org ).  The Defcon ticket price is only $75 for
three whole days of wild revelry (I mean learning)!  My presentation
is scheduled for Friday, August 1 at Noon.  This is at the very
beginning of the conference.  I will give an updated version of my
CanSecWest talk.  Here is the summary:

"Fyodor will present real-life examples of common network and firewall
 configurations, then demonstrate practical techniques for exploring
 and mapping those networks. He will cover IDS evasion, "phantom
 ports", advanced ping sweeps, firewall circumvention, DNS hackery,
 IPv6, and more using his free Nmap scanner and many other Open Source

In other news, I agreed to give an interview for the Slashdot.Org
"news for nerds" site.  The questions were excellent and covered many
topics, from how to get started in the security field, to securing
small networks, the Honeynet Project, and (of course) Nmap.  You can
find my answers here:
