This page contains information about logistics issues related to the Summit 2011 venue


Main point of contact: TBC

Here is all information related to Summit Venue infrastructure

Venue Information

  • (put links to venue data here (for example maps))

Wireless Network(s)

Main point of contact: Filipe Lacerda

The current plan is to have 3 Wireless networks (with maybe the hotel's used as a backup 4th)

  1. Attendees Network - this is the general access one, which will be used by all attendees. This is the one that will be hit the most and the one what will be protected and monitored by Trustwave
  2. Summit Team Network - this is a dedicated private network for the Summit Team. Access should be very limited and should have the maximum/strongest SLA (i.e. if one network cannot go down it is this one)
  3. CTF (Capture The Flag) Network - This will be a network that would contain all traffic related to CTF and other security research activities (it is an interesting question if this should be connected to the Internet, BUT, we might have authorization to perform 'ethical' security reviews to other Portuguese websites, and if so, all such tests should be executed via this network)

Other events and activities

  • Description:Put here other ideas or wordwide events that are happening during the week of the Summit
    • That week is also the Brambley Apple Week


Since there are 'XYZ Day' for everything these days, shouldn't OWASP have a DAY? We could either make it one of the Summit Days or pick another relevant date (which we would celebrate every year)

  • The concept has been previously explored: OWASP Day, but that was more of a 'synchronized OWASP Events around the world' model
  • the idea proposed is to have a fixed day of the year that we start to call from now on the 'OWASP Day' (and of course that this should be something that we celebrate and organize a number of events around it)
