It's good to see Daniel getting out there in a big audience and preaching the PF gospel. Looking forward to trip reports from people, and, as always, I wish I could go, I'd love to see Switzerland.

      what do you expect from german-speaking ppl in a convention in a mostly german-speaking country to do.

      the website has now been changed to say that mr. hartmeier's talk will be in english:

      Design and Performance of the OpenBSD Stateful Packet Filter

      Daniel Hartmeier, Junisphere

      Since three releases, OpenBSD includes a new stateful packet filter called pf. While its functionality is similar to its predecessor, Darren Reed's IP Filter, it has been designed and implemented from scratch. This talk introduces aspects of the new implementation and presents the results of a comparative benchmark done with the first release in 2002, explaining the most important changes since the initial release and giving a summary of the most recent developments and an outlook on the future of pf.

      Language: English

      Daniel Hartmeier is 28, lives in Switzerland, and is an OpenBSD developer since 2001. He is one of the authors of the OpenBSD packet filter (pf).

    It's cool and all that this is going on, all the more power to them. And, as was said, I'd love to see Switzerland too. However, even if money weren't an issue, isn't only two weeks notice kinda short? Is there some sort of repository for conferences that I can check? There's a lot of good ones but unfortunately I only seem to hear about them at the last second and thus can't go (CanSecWest comes to mind).

      I'll try to submit a CSW reminder when I notice preregistration start this year.

      That said, PacSec is coming in a couple months:

      I would love to attend that; Tokyo & Security... geek overload. :)

    Linux on iSeries is vaguely interesting. I'd love to hear about OpenBSD on pSeries boxes. Will the MacPPC port run on them? I googled for info yesterday, and apparently I just don't know enough about PPC chips.
