In previous years, attending the Linux Security Summit (LSS) has required full registration as a LinuxCon attendee. This year, LSS has been upgraded to a hosted event. I didn’t realize that this meant that LSS registration was available entirely standalone. To quote an email thread:
If you are only planning on attending the The Linux Security Summit, there is no need to register for LinuxCon North America. That being said you will not have access to any of the booths, keynotes, breakout sessions, or breaks that come with the LinuxCon North America registration. You will only have access to The Linux Security Summit.
Thus, if you wish to attend only LSS, then you may register for that alone, at no cost.
There may be a number of people who registered for LinuxCon but who only wanted to attend LSS. In that case, please contact the program committee at lss-pc_AT_lists.linuxfoundation.org.

This year’s summit will take place on the 20th and 21st of August, in Seattle, USA, as a LinuxCon co-located event. As such, all Linux Security Summit attendees must be registered for LinuxCon. Attendees are welcome to attend the Weds 19th August reception. ETA: standalone LSS registration is available.
All LSS attendees, including speakers, must be registered attendees of LinuxCon. The first round of early registration ends May 29th.
We’d like to cast our net as wide as possible in terms of presentations, so please share this info with anyone you know who’s been doing interesting Linux security development or implementation work recently.
