Information Security Tools: Salsa and REN-ISAC Updates
Time 04/28/09 01:15PM-02:30PM
This session will review the recent work of the Salsa working groups,
and REN-ISAC. The REN-ISAC introduction will provide information on why
your institution might wish to join the organization, and how to do so.
Salsa is an oversight group, consisting of technical representatives
from the higher education community, who advise on leading edge
technology issues in the security space. Salsa is affiliated with the
EDUCAUSE/Internet2 Computer and Network Security Task Force, but is
independent of both organizations. Salsa activities are future-oriented
and state-of-the-art in nature, focusing on high performance and
advanced networks. Salsa supports work in a number of subgroups,
including: NetAuth, Federated Wireless NetAuth, Disaster Planning &
Recovery (Salsa-DR), and Computer Security Incidents (CSI2).
REN-ISAC is an integral part of higher education's strategy to improve
network security through information collection, analysis,
dissemination, early warning, and response.
