Internet pioneer Radia Perlman will deliver the second keynote at the upcoming Australian national Linux conference in Canberra.

Perlman is known for her work on the ethernet spanning tree protocol, the ISIS routing protocol and TRILL, the recent improvement to STP, according to a media release from the organisers.

The conference, better known as LCA, is scheduled to be held from January 28 to February 2 next year.

Perlman is a fellow at Intel Labs and specialises in network and security protocols.

Her keynote, titled "Reasoning about networks", will attempt to show that popular lore about network protocols is mostly incorrect, and is full of hype and rivalry between competing teams.
