Using network flow records for good - Jeff Lang
Abstract: As part of real-time traffic monitoring and historic forensic investigations, Network Flow records can be an invaluable asset. Flow records are summary data about all the network traffic that is passing through your network devices to answer questions such as how many hosts are talking, whois is talking to whom, and how often? The main purpose of this FireTalk is to discuss common incidents that might occur on a network and show example Network Flow data for those incidents.

Fire Talk abstract slacker - Adam Twitty
Abstract: One of the fundamental problems with using the internet is that you don't know where it's been. Who owns the wire, the switch, the router, the server once data leaves your network? How do we protect this information?
This talk will explore the various methods and protocols that we use every day to protect our information and make sure that we know who we are talking to. You'll also learn what the difference is between encoding, hashing, and encryption. Finally we'll explore some of the more obscure ways of obfuscating data that you might not have heard of before.
I'm looking forward to seeing you all there!
