Register through April 15 for "Authentication, Trusted Computing, Forensics and Software Security," a one-day conference featuring leading experts in the field of information assurance.

The conference is April 22 in the Cascade Room of Atwood Memorial Center.

Participating experts include:

Roy Maxion
Maxion specializes in keystroke dynamics/forensics, fault/masquerader/insider/intrusion detection, attacker/defender testbed, measurement and experimental methodology and reliable software/user interfaces. A professor at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, Maxion holds a doctorate in cognitive science from the University of Colorado.

Elaine Palmer
Palmer is the manager of the Secure Systems and Smart Cards Group at IBM's Thomas J. Watson Research Center in Hawthorne, N.Y. Palmer's team developed the hardware and software for the IBM 4758, a secure, tamper-responding coprocessor for electronic commerce. The coprocessor performs high speed encryption operations, and it provides a secure environment for sensitive applications.

Virgil Gligor
Gligor's areas of expertise include network and distributed systems security and applied cryptography. Active in the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Gligor has edited various publications and served on boards for the IEEE. He holds a doctorate from the University of California at Berkeley and is a professor at the University of Maryland.

Mariusz Jakubowski
Jakubowski is a researcher for Microsoft Research's Cryptography Group in Redmond, Wash. His research interests include software protection, the physics of computation and complex systems such as cellular automata. He holds a doctorate from Princeton University.

The conference brings together academia, businesses, government and industry professionals who are interested in information assurance and network and software security. Business managers who understand the importance of network and software security in their businesses should consider attending.

Faculty from a variety of disciplines will be able to discuss common interests in research, teaching and learning computer security at colleges and universities. 

The conference is made possible by financial support from the MnSCU Center for Teaching and Learning and the Office of the Chancellor.

Parking is free on streets adjacent to campus or a dollar an hour in the 4th Avenue Parking Ramp.
