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

   Advanced Usage of OpenSSH

   In many ways, SSH has become the ubiquitous tool for using remote
   shells.  It  is that, and a lot more. Over the years, SSH (and
   specifically OpenSSH) has blossomed into a networking and security
   Swiss-army knife. When used properly, SSH is a powerful tool which
   can solve some surprisingly difficult problems in very simple and
   elegant ways. It can also be used as a tool to give you some peace
   of mind when working in hostile, administratively constrained or
   seemingly closed networks.

   In this presentation by Sean Cody, the goal will be to show you
   a few  tips, tricks and secure practices using some lesser known
   OpenSSH features, as well as some defences against (or at least
   some awareness of) some of the more clever uses of OpenSSH.

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 $3.00 for the evening. Bicycle
   parking is available in a bike rack under video surveillance located
   behind the building on Webb Place.
