Subject: CanSecWest '02 conference
X-Mailer: iPlanet Webmail

I was thinking about registering for this conference but there isn't
an agenda yet on the web site and the registration form won't 
accept my credit card info. The tentative speaker list looks pretty
impressive but these two things put some doubt in my mind about the
conference.  Has anyone successfully registered? Did anyone attend 
last year?  Was it worthwhile? 


The on-line registration system still only accepts VISA, though we are
working on direct authentication modules for Mastercard and Paypal.
We have gone through some detailed design to develop a
secure transaction system (even down to the level of pgp
encrypting record information stored _inside_ the database
in case the server is compromised), which we've had pen-tested
by an all star audit team including hdm and rfp...  We figured
the attendees of this conference _would_ notice any slip ups :-). 

You may register for the conference through the automated system 
at http://cansecwest.comor with a company cheque by e-mailing
core02 () cansecwest com and getting further info.

In the interim while the new auth modules are being added we can accomodate
AmEx (though we currently have no plans for adding automated processing
of AmEx directly on line) and Mastercard through a manual PayPal transfer
please contact core02 () cansecwest com for this and/or any other conference  
related inquiries.
