HITBSecConf2006 - The Largest Network Security Event in Asia!

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - Hack In The Box (M) Sdn Bhd has announced that 
it will once again be hosting the industrys most anticipated annual 
security conference, HITBSecConf2006, in Kuala Lumpur at The Westin 
Hotel from 18-21 September 2006.

This home-grown non-profit hacking and network security conference will 
feature over 30 of the worlds leading network security specialists who 
will be on hand to conduct 7 tracks of technical training sessions on 
the 18th and 19th of September. Topics for the training sessions include 
advance web application & services hacking; attacking & defending 
networks; the exploit laboratory; tactical VoIP: applied VoIPhreaking; 
War driving .Gov; structured network threat analysis and forensics; and 
Yin and Yang of Java security programming.

This training will then be followed by two days of deep knowledge 
network security presentations with topics ranging from network 
assessment and attack methods, fundamental defense methodologies, and 
the latest computer and network security technologies.

In addition, there will also be a live hacking competition known 
popularly as Capture The Flag. The competition, first developed and 
presented at Defcon in Las Vegas, is an attack and defense game which 
sees teams of individuals tasked with defending and attacking into 
prepared servers in order to retrieve marked files or flags on these 
target machines.

The main aim of the HITB series of conferences is to allow the 
dissemination of deep-knowledge network security info and at the same 
time, give the attendees a chance to meet with the worlds leading 
experts in this field. The presentations at the event are delivered by 
respected members of both the mainstream network security arena as well 
as the underground or black hat community. As always attendees can be 
assured of being amongst the first to learn of new attack and defence 
methods that have not been discussed in public before, said Dhillon 
Andrew Kannabhiran, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Hack In The 
Box (M) Sdn. Bhd.

We believe the conference is also an ideal opportunity for IT and 
security vendors from within the ASEAN region to meet with not only the 
experts but also to share their own expertise and technology with the 
public, he added.

Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). Bruce serves on the board of 
directors of the International Association for Cryptologic Research, and 
is also an Advisory Board member for the Electronic Privacy Information 

Recognised for his work in the software security field, Mark Curphey was 
the Director of Information Security at Charles Schwab where he was 
responsible for creating and managing the global application security 
program when software security wasnt yet on most companies radars. He

become a well-regarded reference site for developers and system 
architects and recommended reading by the US Federal Trade Committee.

John Viega is the co-author of three books on application security -- 
Building Secure Software, Network Security with OpenSSL and the Secure 
Programming Cookbook. He also built the CLASP application security 
process, which is available online. Viega co-developed GCM, a mode of 
operation for block ciphers such as AES that has been incorporated into 
IPSec and the 802.1AE draft document, and is currently being 
standardised by NIST. Despite being cautious about embracing the open 
source security theory, John has been involved in many open source
