I left Pittsburgh for a meeting in Chicago on Wednesday, September 30th. I returned on Friday, October 2nd. In between the old Pittsburgh airport closed and the new one began to operate. According to a friend who changed planes in Pittsburgh on opening day (Thursday), things went smoothly. That may have been true for folks hubbing at the airport, but for those Pittsburgh bound it apparently was not. In order to more easily retrieve my car I had parked with one of the off-airport parking services. Upon return I asked the van driver how things had gone the day before. He said that everything had gone pretty smoothly, except for baggage claiming. He said that delays were around 40 minutes in the morning, but had stretched to two hours by the afternoon. The supposed reason: the airport has a new automated baggage handling system that reads bar codes off luggage. A Britsh Air 747 had arrived with uncoded luggage, and the machinery didn't know how to cope. Chuck Weinstock

>In the quest for tools one encounters the debate on provability and formal top >level specification. Virgil Gligor referred to "formal top level specification >as an unmitigated waste of time," saying that data structures and source may >not map to the top level, there may not be enough relevant details provided, >and excessive false illegal flows may occur. ... A point of clarification: He didn't say that formal top level specifications were a waste of time, but that doing covert channel analysis on them was an _unmitigated_ (his emphasis) waste of time. His point was that you had to do a CC analysis on the source code anyway (since channels would appear in code that didn't show up in the specs). Since any channel found in the analysis of the spec would also be found in the analysis of the code, and you have to do the latter, anyway, doing the former is not useful. (This, of course, flies in the face of the principle that it's much cheaper to find a bug found early in the development process than late, but that's another discussion. Perhaps doing the covert channel analysis is more expensive than fixing a specification bug when you are done with the code.) On another topic... I think that the most surprising new proposal came in the session on the FBI's Digital Telephony Initiative. (This is the proposed legislation that would require telephone and data transport providers to build wiretap capabilities into their systemms.) Someone pointed out that the really bad guys would just use encryption for their data transmission, and that wiretapping wouldn't gain any information on them. (The FBI doesn't want to deal with encryption right now. They'll think about that when (if) they get the current proposal passed.) Dorothy Denning suggested that anyone using high-level encryption over a public network be required to register their encryption keys with some agency. This agency would then distribute the keys when an appropriate court order was presented. The risks of this are fairly obvious. David A. Willcox, Motorola MCG - Urbana, 1101 E.

===== Yves Deswarte - LAAS-CNRS & INRIA - 31077 Toulouse (France) ===== ==== E-mail:email@example.com - Tel:+33/61336288 - Fax:+33/61336411 ==== ESORICS 92 Final Programme European Symposium on Research in Computer Security November 23-25, 1992, Toulouse, France Computer security is concerned with the protection of information in environments where there is a possibility of intrusion or malicious action. The aim of ESORICS is to further the progress of research in computer security by establishing a European forum for bringing together researchers in this area, by promoting the exchange of ideas with system developers and by encouraging links with resear- chers in related areas. To achieve this aim under the best condi- tions, ESORICS 92 will be a single track symposium and the selected papers will be presented in a conference hall whose capacity is 290 attendees. ESORICS 92 is the second symposium of a series started with ESORICS 90 held in Toulouse in October, 1990.
