Applied Cybersecurity is a new student group on the Stanford campus,
and we are having our last workshop of the quarter (about metadata
collection and analysis) this Thursday. Would you be able to send this
to the considering CS and CS major list?

Thank you for considering!


Network Metadata: What's all the fuss about?
Thursday, March 3 4:30-6pm

Edward Snowden's NSA revelations made "metadata" a hot news topic as
well as a political football. After a brief review of its origin and
history, this talk will explain exactly what network metadata is;
where it fits in the spectrum of network traffic analysis; why it
remains useful even for encrypted traffic; and how you can use it to
observe a rich range of system behaviors. Join us for a survey of this
timely and interesting topic with Stanford netflow expert John Gerth
(CS/EE) and Alex Keller (SoE).
