    ************************************************

As the Internet has grown greatly in size, new forms of attacks that
leverage the network's increasing scale have gained prominence.  At the
same time, the network's scale also often increases the difficulty of
countering attacks, making it more difficult to trace back attackers or
deploy widespread defensive measures.  This workshop aims to assess the
lay of the land in terms of large-scale Internet attacks and then to look
for principles common to the problem domain.  The focus will be on three
general types of large-scale attacks: distributed denial-of-service (DDOS),
self-propagating malicious code (worms), and attacks targetting the
network's components (infrastructure attacks).

Participation in the workshop is quite limited because of the emphasis on
achieving a high degree of interactivity & discussion.  Potential attendees
interested in participating should contact the organization chair at
[EMAIL PROTECTED], including a description of relevant background and the
specific topic(s) of interest for discussion & exploration.
