USENIX is pleased to offer free wireless Internet access for LISA '12. The wireless SSID is “usenix”; the network is open and insecure, so attendees are encouraged to use encryption.
Computers provided for registration may be used for general Internet access after 9:00 a.m. and before 4:00 p.m. daily. A printer is available in the registration area and can be used via the registration computers or via the IP address listed on the front of the printer.
For network assistance please visit the USENIX registration desk.
The wired and wireless networks provided by USENIX at this conference are for the use of conference attendees only, subject to the following conditions:
- The network may be monitored.
- Any illicit or intrusive use of the network, including packet sniffing, is expressly forbidden.
- The wireless network is open and insecure. USENIX strongly recommends that all users encrypt their transmissions. Users are solely responsible for the security of their passwords and data.
If you have any questions or concerns about the use of these networks, please contact any USENIX staff or Board member immediately.
Power strips will be available to attendees in the meeting rooms on a first-come, first-served basis.
