applied security conferences and training: CanSecWest | PacSec | EUSecWest |

CanSecWest 2016

The 16th annual CanSecWest conference will be held March 16-18th, 2016 at the Sheraton Wall Centre hotel in downtown Vancouver, British Columbia.

Interact with the security community

CanSecWest, the world's most advanced conference focusing on applied digital security, is about bringing the industry luminaries together in a relaxed environment which promotes collaboration and social networking. The conference lasts for three days and features a single track of thought provoking presentations, each prepared by an experienced professional and talented educator who is at the cutting edge of his or her field. We give preference to new and innovative material, highlighting important, emergent technologies, techniques, or best industry practices.

The conference is single track, with one hour presentations over the duration beginning at 9:00 a.m. The registration fee includes the catered meals, and there will be a vendor display and lounge/eating area, where wireless internet access will be available (as well as in the speaking theater). The conference discount hotel room booking system can be found here.

This year we've decided to take a different approach for the CanSecWest wireless network.
Our network will be fully encrypted using WPA2-Enterprise(EAP-PEAP) AES/CCMP only
A total of five access points will provide coverage for the main conference hall:
- 3 in the 2.4Ghz (802.11g/n) range
- 2 in the 5Ghz (802.11n) range
Authentication and SSID information will be provided to attendees at the registration desk
Your account will provide access through one 2.4Ghz and one 5Ghz access point
If you are using a Windows XP/Vista/7 device, some manual configuration will be required (instructions and assistance will be available at the registration desk)
For all others (IOS/OSX/Android/Linux/Symbian/Mobile 7) it should "just work"

Here is our wifi CA, Windows configuration information to follow soon
