Breakout Session 2: Internet2 CLASS Program & NGI Update
Internet2 is partnering with major cloud providers and research universities to develop the Cloud Learning and Skills Sessions (CLASS) program to fill the gaps in training for cloud and research computing. The program accelerates the adoption of best practices in research computing and data in the cloud and provides professional development for research computing and data professionals (those who support researchers).  In this session, Internet2 will present the CLASS program and how you can participate in it.  Additionally, there will be an update on the deployment of the Internet2 Next Generation Infrastructure (NGI) network, including the optical, packet, automation, orchestration, and telemetry projects that comprise an amazingly comprehensive network infrastructure that can support research and education efforts for many years to come.

Breakout Session 3: STINGAR - Threat Intelligence for Higher Education
At Duke University, STINGAR has helped to increase the security team’s blocking capabilities from 10 million malicious connection attempts per day to 2 billion per day at the height of the Mirai botnet. The honeypot portion of STINGAR accounts for a significant chunk of these blocks and also has increased the fidelity of what they block, reducing  false positives. Come hear information on STINGAR and consider how it might help manage and protect your users from malicious attacks against your campus.
