Keynote Speaker: Mr. Dan Farmer


Dan has been involved in the computer security industry for more than 20 years. He's the author or co-author of several software programs including COPS, SATAN, Titan, & TCT. In particular, SATAN was a controversial program when it was released, because some security administrators and law enforcement personnel believed that hackers would use it to identify and break into private networks.  With Venema, he authored the book "Forensic Discovery", which covers the theory and hands-on practice of forensic computing.

Dan has worked for a variety of companies including Sun, Earthlink, SGI, and SEI/CERT.  Currently he is the CTO for Elemental Security, a company he co-founded with Dayne Myers. He earned a B.S. degree in Computer Science from Purdue University.
