The AFS and Kerberos Best Practices Workshop Committee is happy to
announce that registration for the 2011 AFS and Kerberos Best Practices
Workshop is now open.  As previously announced, this year's tutorials
and workshop sessions will be held as an electronic conference which we
hope will permit a broader range of attendees to participate in a year
of reduced travel budgets.

This year we have two new tutorial instructors with significantly
updated course materials.  We welcome Kim Kimball as our new AFS
instructor and Simon Wilkinson as our new Kerberos instructor.  Kim's
experience as an AFS trainer dates back to his days with IBM/Transarc
and Simon has been enabling application protocols to authenticate with
Kerberos and GSS-API for nearly a decade.  Both have given numerous
informational and entertaining talks at past workshops.



The price for each is US$100.00.

The workshop sessions will include many of our most popular speakers:

  Russ Allbery
  Jeffrey Altman
  Matt Benjamin
  Derrick Brashear
  Andrew Deason
  Asanka Herath
  Love Hornquist Astrand
  Henry Hotz
  Tom Keiser
  Mike Meffie
  Simon Wilkinson

and will be hosted by Kim Kimball and Marshall Vale.  Topics include:

  A History of AFS
  AFS and Kerberos Project Status Reports
  Obtaining AFS Credentials at login on MacOS X
  Web Authentication
  KX509 extensions
  A practical guide to upgrading AFS from rxkad to rxgk security
  Performance Benefits of the AFS Extended Callback model
  Deploying the Demand Attach File Server (DAFS) - [New in OpenAFS 1.6]
  AFS RX Performance

  OpenAFS Futures

and our two most popular panels will return:

  Live Troubleshooting
   - submit real world problems for live analysis

  Stump the Experts
   - ask anything related to Kerberos or AFS, get an answer

Finally, the workshop would not be complete without the annual site
reports in which attendees tell each other how Kerberos and AFS have
been successfully deployed within their organizations.

The price for the three days of workshop sessions is US$60.00.

The AFS and Kerberos Best Practices Workshop is appropriate for anyone
that is responsible for deploying or curious about real world
distributed computing environments.
