In view of the numerous concerns that have been heard at the different forums where LACNIC has participated in relation to network security issues and also on the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list, we are opening a space for analyzing and debating this subject matter at the following mailing list:
Additionally, in order to consider the results of the discussions and suggestions that will be received on this new list, within the framework of LACNIC IX, a face-to-face meeting on network security will be held in the city of Guatemala on May 24, 2006.
The objectives of the new mailing list will be as follows:
1.- To bring together in one forum all those interested in network security issues, incident coordination and creation of CSIRTs.
2.- To debate concrete actions and coordination projects for the region to implement in case of network security problems.
3.- To suggest issues of interest to the community and discuss these issues in preparation for the LACNIC IX network security meeting to be held next May.
With these goals in mind, Cristine Hoepers of CERT.br and Juan Carlos Guel of CERT-UNAM have kindly agreed to moderate this mailing list.
They will do so until voting is held for electing moderators for this new forum during the face-to-face meeting scheduled during LACNIC IX. The moderators' responsibilities will be to channel discussions, focus debates and propose the issues and agenda that will be presented at the face-to-face meeting.
Membership is open, and those who wish to subscribe can do so at http://lacnic.net/mailman/listinfo/seguridad
