Digital Logic FPGA Instructor Workshop

Description: Teaching Digital Logic with FPGAs – How to get started! Free two day workshop 3 and 4 October 2008 FMAC Facility 2350 Alamo Avenue SE Suite 100 Albuquerque, NM 87106 Because of the technical skills and costs associated with certain technologies, many schools are unable to provide these education opportunities to their students. One such example involves the exposure to digital logic. Recent advancements in this area now allow a digital logic laboratory to be implemented in a quick, relevant and cost effective manner. Field Programmable Gate Arrays FPGAs provide an alternative solution for educators looking to implement digital logic. An FPGA is a “chameleon” chip. Its basic structure can be modified a virtually unlimited amount of times to perform a multitude of different missions by reconfiguring the hardware through software. The FPGA Mission Assurance Center FMAC has a proven record of successfully building these types of laboratory programs. We have taught programmable logic workshops at the high school, junior college and university level. In this workshop, we will attempt to clear up much of the confusion. This workshop is designed for professors, instructors and laboratory directors. The Xilinx, Altera and National Instrument Programs will be covered. The FMAC can show schools how to establish a ten station programmable logic laboratory for approximately $1500. Craig Kief is the Deputy Director of the FPGA Mission Assurance Center. His research interests are in the fields of computer architecture, programmable logic and embedded systems. He has been working in a wide variety of different FPGA arenas for more than ten years. Seating is limited to allow for better interaction. Contact Craig Kief for reservations. For additional information, go to the website www.fpgamac.com or contact Craig Kief DeputyDirector@fpgamac.com Workshop Overview and Syllabus   An overview of FPGAs, where they are used and how they fit into the global digital electronics world will be given. The two major FPGA developers are Xilinx and Altera – and both will be explored. We will then have an explanation of the four steps essential to all FPGA projects: design, synthesis, place and route, and programming. Each of these, and the associated tools, will be explored. The attendees will be provided with enough information for them to be able to make wise decisions about the steps they will need to be able to develop a digital logic course of instruction at their schools. Although all projects will be completed using the Xilinx tools and devices, overviews and points of contacts about Xilinx and Altera educational and donation programs will be presented. In the afternoon, projects will be developed that will allow them to put all the instruction presented in the morning to practical use. Projects will be performed using the Xilinx ISE software, VHDL and Spartan 3 FPGA devices.   The FMAC is federally funded to provide schools with the assistance for them to be able to teach this type of material at their organizations. FMAC personnel will be available after the workshop should the attendees have further questions or need further assistance.

Information Assurance I and II v2 Retooling - 4 days (Includes a complete CNSS 4011 / 4013 mapping workshop)

Description: Faculty will work with CSSIA''''''''s revised Information Assurance curriculum that will cover the complete CNSS 4011 and 4013 mapping requirements. Faculty will be given tools and curriculum that will enable their institutions to offer two courses that include required Information Assurance course and skills elements. This workshop also will expose participants to network security planning, technology and organization; and the legal and ethical issues associated with network security. Students will receive hands on labs for skills necessary within the Security+, CISSP and SCNP certifications. About the Information Assurance Courseware Evaluation IACE Program NSA Courseware Evaluation Program Click Here The Information Assurance Courseware Evaluation IACE Program implements a process to systematically assess the degree to which the courseware from commercial, government, and academic sources maps to the national standards set by the Committee on National Security Systems CNSS. The IACE Program is currently managed by the National Information Assurance Education and Training Program Office within the Information Assurance Directorate at NSA. The goal of the IACE Program is to expand the use of national standards in information assurance education and training throughout the nation. These standards were developed for the government, but have been kept unclassified to share with the greater IA community. The IACE process certifies that an institution meets all of the requirements of a specific CNSS standard within its courseware set of instruction. The certification process does not address the quality of the presentation of the material within the courseware; it simply ensures that all of the elements of a specific standard are included. Certified institutions meet the minimum national training and education standards for the duties and responsibilities of: Information Systems Security INFOSEC Professionals, NSTISSI 4011 Senior Systems Managers, CNSSI 4012 System Administrators SA, CNSSI 4013 Information Systems Security Officers, CNSSI 4014 System Certifiers, NSTISSI 4015 Risk Analyst, CNSSI 4016 Additional standards are currently being developed Successful IACE mapping is a prerequisite for applying to the National Centers of Academic Excellence in IA Education Program.

VoIP - Security

Description: Enterprises considering voice over Internet protocol VoIP primarily focus on the technology''''''''s cost benefits. Yet, in their push to converge voice onto data networks and save telephony costs, many organizations are failing to adequately consider VoIP''''''''s single challenge: security. If you haven''''''''t looked recently or at all, it is in your best interest to understand technologies and exploits in order to plug any holes and keep your VoIP safe. In this technical workshop, you will learn about inherent vulnerabilities with VPN technologies and why not all VPNs are created the same. This VoIP Security course teaches students to identify vulnerabilities and potential exploits in VoIP protocols, VoIP equipment and phones. It promotes industry standard best practices in VoIP Security and examines VoIP vulnerabilities: Eavesdropping on third party calls via RTP SIP Attacks H.323 Attacks H.225 Registration Replay Attacks Spoofing Endpoints, Gatekeepers, Border Controllers Denial of Service SIP and H.323 This workshop will additionally review an entire curriculum suite of VoIP courseware available to colleges and other educational institutions looking for a comprehensive VoIP A-Z curriculum texts, labs, instructor materials, assessments... for a very nominal yearly licensing fee.
