Ruxcon security conference returns to Melbourne

By

Following last year's highly successful event, Ruxcon, the IT computer security conference is back in 2012.

Featuring pre-conference training and all manner of hacking, this is the premier computer security event in Australia for those who prefer to not wear a suit.

According to conference organiser Chis Spencer, "Sponsored by Google, Microsoft, Facebook and the Defence Signals Directorate, Ruxcon brings together over 600 hackers, academics and professionals with a passion for network security, reverse engineering, and all things hacking, for in depth discussions about the latest vulnerabilities and security threats.

"The talents of home-grown security researchers will be demonstrated alongside high-profile international security experts hailing from France, Italy, China, India, UK and the USA.

"During the course of the weekend, participants will soak up 29 presentations on a diverse range of cutting edge security topics covering everything from bypassing popular enterprise security protections to breaking into telephone systems."

Highlighted speakers include Greens Senator Scott Ludlam who will join a panel discussion on data retention laws and also the buying and selling of exploits by governments and their agencies.

Verizon's Mark Goudie and the AFP's Alex Tilley will also make return appearances.

As is usual for these events there will be both capture-the-flag and lock-picking competitions.

Registrations (a mere $350) for the October 20th & 21st event may be made at the conference web site, but hurry; the event is expected to fill up well before the kick-off.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
