The Linux Security Summit (LSS) is a technical forum for collaboration
between Linux developers, researchers, and end users. Its primary aim is to
foster community efforts in analyzing and solving Linux security challenges.

LSS will be held this year as two separate events, one in North America
(LSS-NA), and one in Europe (LSS-EU), to facilitate broader participation in
Linux Security development. Note that this CFP is for LSS-NA; a separate CFP
will be announced for LSS-EU in May. We encourage everyone to attend both

and maintainers. It’s also useful for those who wish to keep up with the
latest in Linux security development, and to provide input to the
development process.
