2005 USENIX Annual Technical Conference



Internet Access/Wireless Network

USENIX is pleased to offer Internet connectivity and a Wiki for attendees of USENIX '05. 802.11b Wireless Internet access will be available in most of the conference space. The wireless network is open, insecure, and has the SSID "usenix". We also offer a terminal room with power, Ethernet connections, and a few *NIX computers for those without laptops. The conference network assigns NAT'd IP addresses via DHCP. Static assignments are available upon request. For further information on the conference network, including usage and the conference Wiki, please visit or inquire at the 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:

  • 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.
If you have any questions or concerns about the use of these networks, please contact any USENIX staff or Board member immediately.
