You will drive discussions that focus on current issues, tools, and methods relevant to the National CSIRT community. This year's meeting is co-located with the 30th Annual FIRST Conference in Kuala Lumpur. This meeting is by invitation only and more details can be found at http://www.cert.org/natcsirt/.
Bird of a Feather Sessions, activities primarily focus on meetings which take place at the conference based on the interest of a number of members. They are not necessarily intended to lead to year round work.
BoF sessions are scheduled to take place during before conference sessions begin (8:30-9:30am) or following the final session of the day. We will have an up-to-date-schedule and bulletin board near the registration desk onsite. Attendees are welcome to request a BoF in advance by emailing email@example.com or by adding their own BoFs to the bulletin board onsite (rooms are assigned based on first come, first served - and room assignment space is limited.

PGP is one of the foundations of the security community, and to rely on PGP there needs to be trust in the PGP keys. The trust is made by signatures and validation of identity. FIRST facilitates this community effort by hosting PGP Key signing events.
We will have at least two PGP Key signing events - listen to the opening remarks or a remark at registration desk for changes in regards time / date.
In the past we did not sign team keys and we do not plan to change that.
For those who haven’t participated in the past years it will go like to following:
Hint: Please do not upload your key an hour before the key signing, as I might be printing out the keyring a few hours earlier.
8.1 Sign the keys with your PGP key 8.2 send the signed person the signed key with your signature
