Tuesday-Thursday, December 6-8, there will be forty-five peer reviewed

his Bell-LaPadula model; works in progress -- quick updates on
ongoing projects; and Distinguished Practitioner Brian Snow and
Invited Essayist Mary Ellen Zurko. On Friday, December 9 we have
tutorials on analysis of large scale network data, security policy
