The March meeting will be held NEXT Wednesday.  There is no meeting
April 1.

April 8 2015
Blacklistd, Christos Zoulas
6:45, Stone Creek Bar & Lounge
140 E 27th St

Today's systems expose multiple network daemons and are constantly
attacked by a fleet of zombie bots or determined attackers. Scanning
logs to determine if an attack is in place in order to modify a firewall
to block an attack is an ad-hoc inelegant solution. Blacklistd is a
daemon and a library interface that attempts to correct this problem.

Christos' first experience with Unix was in 1983 while studying at
Cornell. He currently maintains a few Unix programs (file, tcsh,
libedit, rdist6) and he contributes to many others. He is a board member
of the NetBSD Foundation and a recipient of the USENIX Lifetime
Achievement Award for contributions to the Unix operating system. His
day job is in Finance.
