No security session this

No security session this time?

One of the important characteristics of Linux is its security.

in the previous festival, people showed great interest in security session(s).

If you can sneak a session for security between those, I can prepare something, be it basics like ACLs/ACMs, firewalls, etc. or advanced like stack randomization, hypervisor/kernel rootkits detection, certain programmatic mistakes that leads to stack/heap based attacks, or defending against DL-Injection and hijacking processes with ptrace. Your call.
