What discussions do you vaguely speak of? nsp-sec? nsp-sec BoF @ NANOG? FIRST? it-scc.org? commscc.org? IT-ISAC? NCS? the ITU-D Cybersecurity stuff? NSTAC? There's all sorts of forums that relate to security that are defined by different criteria or self-selecting. > Is this a topic that the NANOG community would like to discuss in > a serious manner? I think it'd discussed at NANOG and even has it's own BoF. Without you providing more context of what you mean, it's hard to say. > I'm just curious, because I'm considering submitting a "lightning > talk" at the upcoming San Jose NANOG, just to gauge & present some > of the major issues that we are seeing that could really use your > assistance. - Jared -- Jared Mauch | pgp key available via finger from jared@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx clue++; | http://puck.nether.net/~jared/ My statements are only mine.
