The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, June 9.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:

   TrustedBSD Architecture

   The TrustedBSD project develops advanced security features for the
   FreeBSD operating system. Features from TrustedBSD have also made
   their way into other operating systems, such as NetBSD, OpenBSD,
   Mac OS X, and Linux.

   Christian Peron is a FreeBSD security developer. He will discuss
   the security deficiencies in the architectures of most existing
   operating  systems. Christian will show us the technical and
   architectural changes that the TrustedBSD project made to the
   FreeBSD operating system to enhance security. Some of the changes
   include separating the access control framework from the security
   policy, modifying the kernel to support an auditing framework, and
   setting up an intrusion detection system.

The group holds its general meetings at 7:30pm on the second Tuesday of
every month from September to June.  (There are no meetings in July and
August.) Meetings are open to the general public; you don't have to be a
MUUG member to attend.

   Please note our meeting location: The IBM offices, at 400 Ellice Ave.
   (between Edmonton and Kennedy). When you arrive, you will have to
   sign in at the reception desk, and then wait for someone to take you
   (in groups) to the meeting room. Please try to arrive by about 7:15pm, 
   so the meeting can start promptly at 7:30pm. Don't be late, or you may
   not get in.  (But don't come too early either, since security may not
   be there to let you in before 7:15 or so.) Non-members may be required
   to show photo ID at the security desk.

   Limited parking is available for free on the street, either on Ellice
   Ave. or on some of the intersecting streets. Indoor parking is also
   available nearby, at Portage Place, for $5.00 for the evening. Bicycle
   parking is available in a bike rack under video surveillance located
   behind the building on Webb Place.
