BSD High Availability
6:45 PM, Suspenders Restaurant backroom
111 Broadway in Manhattan
The BSD High Availability (HA) suite has some very handy and powerful
features. However, as with all systems, there are certain considerations
to be made when rolling out a HA implementation. This talk will focus on
the security considerations when rolling out a BSD HA implementation.
The talk will cover the following:
* An explanation of the BSD HA environment (CARP, pfsync, sasyncd)
* How these components, specifically CARP, function at a lower level
* Current and potential attacks against the HA environment, including
* Security considerations when rolling out a HA implementation and
* Ideas on how to improve the security and flexibility of the BSD HA
Sam hails from a small country in the middle of nowhere called New
Zealand, where people live in mud huts and rub sticks together to
produce fire. When not foraging for berries and miscellaneous woodland
creatures, Sam works for Lateral Security as a security consultant (a
more CEO-friendly word for hacker) where he breaks into systems for a
living. Previous to that, he spent several years in programming and
system administration roles. He caught the BSD bug many years ago when
his friend enlightened him to the fact that he too could have a solid
block cursor at the terminal.

May Meeting: The Unix Method of Development Management with William Baxter

BSDCan is next month.
BSDCan, a BSD conference held in Ottawa, Canada, has quickly established
itself as the technical conference for people working on and with 4.4BSD
based operating systems and related projects. The organizers have found
a fantastic formula that appeals to a wide range of people from extreme
novices to advanced developers. You know you`ll like it.
BSDCan 2011 will be held on 13-14 May 2011 at University of Ottawa, and
will be preceded by two days of Tutorials on 11-12 May 2011.
Registration is open: http://www.bsdcan.org/2011/register.php
