World InfoCon Conference
13 & 14:07:2000 
10.30 - 18.30

Artists, experts, intelligence agents, scientists and politicians gather to
discuss the issues of digital ecology, future culture heritage and media

The speakers and panelists describe a world of imbalanced information
channels and locate major nodes of infrastructure and crossroads of content
development. World InfoCon's major goal is to give insight into the complex
fabric of the data-economy and the media landscape.

The conference serves as a forum of discourse for strategies in information

Cees J. Hamelink (NL, University of Amsterdam, author of various UNESCO
reports on communication), Steve Wright (UK, Control Technologies Omega
Foundation), Edward S. Herman (US, University of Pennsylvania), Simon Davies
(UK, Privacy.Org) & Saskia Sassen (famous media theoretician, US & UK, LSE)

all of July              

with Marko Peljhan-SLO, Critical Art Ensemble-USA, monochrom-A, The
Association of Autonomous Astronauts-INT, Constant-BE, and others

Implementing Secure TCP/IP Networks with IPSEC & Linux FreeS/WAN 

Hugh Daniel 
The Linux FreeS/WAN Project

The tutorial will introduce various secure data-transmission technologies
and their implementation. IPSEC and related protocols provide a basis for
secure TCP/IP based networking and VPN's from the very simple to the
mind-bogglingly complex. Introducing IPSEC, IKE, DNS Secure and related
technology's both describing how they are different from current networking
practice and what systems they do (and don't) secure. We will then move on
to describing how to design, setup, debug and monitor such systems on the
'wild' Internet based on real world examples from the Linux FreeS/WAN
Project implementation of IPSEC/IKE and possible visions of future usage in
systems like Insular Technologies and similar. The session will last
approximately 4 hours and will be very labor intensive. The main aim of this
presentation is the advocacy of secure internet protocol usage as the sole
future standard of the matrix communication.

Marko Peljhan
Projekt Atol

This presentation will look into the historical and political roots of
satellite development, design, launch and policy issues. An overview from
the first satellite designs and their purposes to their most advanced
contemporary counterparts will be accompanied with visual materials and
extensive documentation. After that specific attention will be given to
pico, nano and micro satellite design, focusing on already finished and
successful projects and possible new solutions. A sample process system will
be presented and a plan for the system implementation and design will be
unveiled. After this, launch issues will be discussed, with current and
future world's launch capabilities and policies presented. Focus will be
given to conversion launchers and new products on the market. As the last
point, satellite conversion and re-use projects will be discussed, focusing
on the Iridium case. At the end, the participants will be encouraged to work
in a workshop form to produce a JFDILD (joint finance design implementation
and launch document).

Keywords: monitoring, tracking interception, communications policy,
military space, civilian space, broadcasting

Marko Peljhan
Projekt Atol

This presentation will look into the current DIY capabilities of satellite
interception and tracking technologies and their implementations. With
historical material, from the first Sputnik, to the Iridium constellation
and the current Spy-Sats, the different tracking and observation techniques
will be discussed case by case and their signals and visual signatures
presented where possible. Special attention will be given to little known
Soviet and Russian projects. Relevant software and hardware combinations for
the purpose will be presented, together with decoding software for telemetry
and sample digital signal processing, tracking software solutions and
tracking hardware combinations. Further the presentation will focus on the
use of tracking for practical communication purposes in the amateur field.
After this, geo-stationary earth orbit satellite interception and reception
issues will be presented, together with the known current world
constellation. Sample material of investigative work in the field will be
shown, ending with the projection of Brian Springer's award winning SPIN
documentary. Presented by Projekt Atol-PACT SYSTEMS and
