THE organiser of the popular Hack In The Box Security Conference (HITBSecConf) has announced that over 18 of the world’s renowned hackers and network security researchers would be attending the fourth HITBSecConf, to be held in Manama Bahrain from April 10-13. Organised in partnership with E-Security Gulf Group, a security services and security solutions reseller based in Manama, HITBSecConf2005 will feature experts who will be on hand to present their latest research and findings in the computer and network security fields.

HITBSecConf2005 will run over a period of four days, with a two-day multi-track deep-knowledge network security conference followed by another two days of hands-on technical workshops. Prominent keynote speakers include Bruce Schneier, CTO of Counterpane Internet Security; Paul Mcnabb, general manager and director of business development of Argus Systems; and Jorge Sebastiao, CEO of E-Security Gulf Group.

Bruce Schneier is an internationally renowned security technologist and the author of eight books, including his current bestseller, Beyond Fear: Thinking Sensibly about Security in an Uncertain World. Schneier also designed the popular Blowfish and Twofish encryption algorithms — the latter a finalist for the new Federal Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). He has served on the board of directors of the International Association for Cryptologic Research, and is an advisory board member for the Electronic Privacy Information Centre.
