wanted to let you all know details about this year and that
pre-registration is closing in only 10 days! Save $15 and pre-register

ToorCon, San Diego's own information security conference looks forward to
it's 6th year in September 2004. Founded originally by the San Diego 2600

slowly grown from a small underground gathering to a conference
attracting security professionals and hackers from all around the world.
ToorCon's goal is simple -- To bridge the gap between intrusion and
defense and create an environment that gets people motivated to learn,
participate, and contribute to the community around them.

topic they want. Pizza & beer will be provided during the BoF sessions
and the Slagheap Party complements of The Shmoo Group and Slagheap.

This year we are putting an emphasis on Privacy and Anonymity because of
our theme of "20 years after big brother". To do this, we've split the
lineup into two distinct tracks, Attack & Destroy and Protect & Defend
spanning across 2 days. This year we will also have a special emphasis
on anonymous networks, advanced attack methods, cryptography,
steganography, forensics and tracking, and reverse engineering.
