Howdy all,

This week I'm happy to announce Tom Tantillo will be presenting on the
system that he has been developing for his PhD!  A blurb about Spire is
below.  As always the meeting will be in Malone 228 at 6:30.

Spire is an intrusion tolerant SCADA system.  Spire is being developed to
correctly control power grid infrastructure in the presence of malicious
attackers (aka hackers).  Spire builds upon previous work from the
Distributed Systems lab including Spines <http://www.spines.org/> and Prime
<http://www.dsn.jhu.edu/byzrep/prime.html>.  Three weeks ago it underwent a
red team test at Pacific Northwest National Laboratories in which a
commercial SCADA system was successfully penetrated but the red team was
unable to gain any control over the Spire system.

I hope to see you all there!
