[SLUG] Security Miniconf at LCA2005


Hi List,
   This is a quick email pimping the security miniconf planned to be
   part of the up and coming LCA2005. This is the call for papers. We
   encourage all sorts of security related papers, even if you yourself
   are not the primary developer for a specific project. If you feel you
   have something to share, please consider presenting at the miniconf.
   
   This is the official cfp from:
   http://lca2005.linux.org.au/security_miniconf/

    * Security features within Linux. This may cover PaX/Non executable
      stacks, GRSecurity, IPTables developments, security enhancements
      within applications such as apache, php, python etc.

      reverse engineering of potentially malicious code, and advances in
