Workshop on Intrusion Detection and Network Monitoring
April 9-12, 1999
Santa Clara, California, USA
Message from the Program Chair
A few years ago, a wise old programmer complained that in "Internet Time" technologies go from "Interesting research" to "overhyped" before the researchers get a chance to actually make any progress. Hopefully this workshop will help prove that his complaint is wrong-a lot of smart people are doing research in intrusion detection (ID) today, and are willing to share their ideas with their peers. We have a line-up of papers that we think represent some of the most interesting work being done in the field; we're happy to be able to share them with you.
As program chair, it's an honor to help organize such a workshop: the real work is done by the authors and the USENIX staff. I'd like to thank our authors for submitting their work, and taking on the additional effort of sharing their thoughts with the community. Thanks also to the program committee for reviewing papers, choosing among them, and helping the authors edit their final drafts. Lastly, deep thanks to the USENIX staff, who kept an eye on the schedules, locations, publications, formats, and made sure the "i"s were dotted and "t"s were crossed. Without USENIX's ongoing commitment to spreading knowledge, the computing world would be a little darker. Thank you all.
I welcome you, and hope you enjoy and learn from the workshop.
