Subject: Owl at CanSecWest/Core02 and UniNet InfoSec; Owl binaries for Alpha available


We'd like to announce our forthcoming presentation on Openwall
GNU/*/Linux (Owl) at CanSecWest/Core02 information security conference
in early May in Vancouver B.C., Canada.  The presentation will
essentially be a replay of the one we did at NordU2002 this February,
with minor updates.  This is also your opportunity to get free
Owl-current CD's (rather than have to download and burn an ISO) and
indeed ask us any questions you might have, -- in person.  If everything
goes well, both me and Nergal will be there.

The conference web site is at:

Please let us know if you register for the conference as a result of
this announcement.  Any extra conference registrations directly help
cover the speakers' travel and accommodation expenses.  It really is a
good idea to get your employer to send you to CanSecWest. ;-)

If you're for some reason unable to meet us in Vancouver, there's the
alternative to attend UniNet's online InfoSec conference where I am
going to try to do the same presentation on April, 19th at 19:00 GMT.
They will use a pair of IRC channels on their private IRC network for
the talks and I will be referring to an online copy of the slides.
Honestly, this does sound quite weird to me, but why not give it a try.
Their web site is at:

Finally, I'd like to announce the availability of Owl-current binary
packages for the Alpha (EV56+ for now).  You may find them on the FTP
mirrors under /pub/Owl/current/alphaev56/.  The only thing we're still
lacking to declare complete Alpha support is a proper boot loader (you
currently have to use one you may have from another Linux install or
download, build, and install one manually).  The system works and is
capable to rebuild itself without causing a single unaligned trap.  Any
feedback is appreciated.
