LaBrea is a network protection application that puts unused IP addresses to work as a network "tarpit" for worm and scripted scanning attacks on the Internet as a whole. By manipulating the parameters of a TCP session, LaBrea is able to capture and hold active attacks against unused IP space, allowing network administrators time to track down and contact infected machines.

In addition to being President and founder of LaBrea, Tom is Vice President of Information Services - Prem Magnetics, Inc. Tom has impressive credentials including being a Member of the SANS Institute's GIAC Security Essentials Certification Advisory Boardand has earned a SANS Institute/GIAC Security Essentials Certification in 2001.
