Dave Dugal, Juniper
Dave is currently a Senior Product Security Incident Manager on the Juniper Networks Security Incident Response Team (SIRT). As a founding member going back to 2001, when SIRT was only a virtual team within the company, Dave has been a distinguished focal point and one of the primary contacts for external product and protocol security reports for over 15 years.
Dave has been an active participant in both the Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams (FIRST) and the Industry Consortium for Advancement of Security on the Internet (ICASI) for as long as Juniper has been members of both organizations, handling PGP team key management, email administration, notices to/from the IRT community, vetting of multi-vendor product security issues, etc.
Prior to joining Juniper SIRT full time, Dave was a recognized, knowledgeable, and well-respected Senior Escalation Engineer within the Juniper Networks JTAC, with extensive inside knowledge of the operation of Junos and JUNOSe hardware and software.
Technical areas of expertise include not just PPP, but L2TP, QoS, L2 and L3 MPLS VPNs, security, systems architecture and release management. Most recently, Dave co-authored and published RFC 6192 on Protecting The Router Control Plane.
