'Building the network you need with OpenBSD's PF'  

Tutor:  Peter N M Hansteen

This tutorial focuses on building the high performance, low maintenance
network you need.

Along the way we explore the whys and hows and cover all bases from the basic
one machine configuration and basic local area networks, all the way up to
configurations with traffic shaping and load balancing with "self-healing"
networks and counter-measures against common problems such as DOS attempts
and spamming.

A basic understanding of TCP/IP and some Unix knowledge is assumed. This
tutorial will happen very soon after OpenBSD 4.4 is released and will be up
to date with the latest release.

Who should attend? Those who use or are considering using PF on any BSD. It
goes from the basics to advanced usage of the latest versions of PF,
including traffic shaping using altq, and the supporting features for higher
level services such as trapping spam via greylisting and http filtering, SSL
proxying, and load balancing. PFs simplicity and ease allows those new to PF
to understand it quickly, while refreshing the best practices in filtering
for those who have used PF for years.


Venue: Imperial Hotel, London.
