Internet Access/Wireless Network
USENIX is pleased to offer Internet connectivity at LISA '07 via an open, unsecured 802.11a/b/g WiFi network. Those not wishing to use wireless can plug in and charge up in the Laptop Lounge (Pegasus A). No laptop? No problem. The Laptop Lounge will offer a few *NIX terminals with a Web browser and your favorite shell. CMU is graciously providing network hardware to ensure complete coverage of the meeting space. Managed and Monitored Network Services, LLC, is providing network statistics, monitoring, and redundant DHCP and DNS. For more information about the network, stop by the Laptop Lounge.

  • USENIX may monitor these networks.
  • 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.

USENIX Conferences Are Green!
We are pleased to announce our commitment to producing a conference that is environmentally responsible. We are working with our suppliers to implement policies that minimize the negative impact on the environment. Here are just a few ways that we're making this happen:

  • The conference directory is printed on recycled paper.
  • The Hyatt participates in a towel and sheet reuse program.
  • You can help, too! Please recycle your name badge at the USENIX registration desk when you depart.
