The 5th annual Sharkfest is on!
Sharkfest'12 will be held from June 24 till June 27 at University of California in Berkeley.
Let me give you ten reasons, why you should ask your boss for a ticket to Sharkfest'12:)
one Two superb Keynotes on various aspects of network security by Cliff Stoll, author of The Cuckoo's Egg, and Steve Riley, a Technical Leader at Riverbed and well-known security guy.
Enjoy the various sessions, hands-on labs and case studies:
two daily hands-on labs, including: “Building an IPv6 Network” and “Spans & Mirrors & Taps, Oh My!”
three meet the Wireshark core developers in “Ask the Experts” forums
four case studies
five deep-diving into packet analysis
Get a great change to speak to Wireshark developers and devotees from all over the world during:
six welcome dinner
seven vendor night festivities
eight share knowledge with network and protocol analysis veterans, mavens and peers during coffee breaks
Enjoy the beautiful surroundings of UC Berkeley:
nine explore the Clark Kerr campus
ten attend the presentation about cryptography by Larry Greenblatt.
He will be using Wireshark to sniff out an SSL handshake and explain why we are supposed to trust the ID cards sites present us with on the internet.

See you at Sharkfest'12
Author Profile - My name is Joke (pronounced \yo-kə\ or Joan for those who do not speak Dutch). During the day, I work as a secretary for a non-profit organization providing assisted living for mentally handicapped people in the south of The Netherlands. In my spare time I like to use Wireshark. I find it interesting and necessary to monitor my home network to see what is going on. As a user I like to answer questions at the Wireshark Mailing List or Ask Wireshark.
What is in it for me? Well, I learn a great deal whenever I try to solve real-world problems. I am also a member of the NGN (the Dutch Network User's Group). I write articles about how to use Wireshark and the command line tools. And if there is still some spare time left, I like to go biking in the woods near my hometown with my husband and fellow geek.
