Seminar topics ?

I'm wondering what I should do for my seminar. louiswu suggested Nmap's OS Fingerprinting methods (which I may end up doing eventually), but does anyone out there have some suggestions for me ? I'll be glad to have a few topics to choose from.

Some people never learn. Ethereal simply rulez ;). When are people going to learn how to properly shut down open relays ?? I have one answer. Never. They just don't see how SMTP works (because once they do, they'll see the problem).

Anyone know how AUTH works on SMTP ? I'm off to sleep now, going to college tomorrow.

of course with HTTP CONNECT, even apache can be used as an open relay - and the default on redhat is to leave it open.

SMTP AUTH? read the RFC.

Agreed. But when you've explained to someone what an Open Relay is & what damage can be caused by misusing it, it still seems that they don't understand the basics...

The RFC's helped. Thanks. Its clearly explained in RFC 2554
