CDBUG Meeting, April 14, 2015, 6:45PM at INOC, David Cross on "SSO with MIT Kerberos V"

CDBUG will have its regular monthly meeting this Tuesday, April 14, 6:45PM. We'll be back at INOC (80 State St., Albany) this month.

Registration for BSDCan is now open. Brian is giving a talk with George (one of the NYC*BUG founders) on building *BSD User Groups. There will be a lot of talk about NYC*BUG and CDBUG, and it would be great to have a CDBUG group come and support him.

Upcoming meetings:
May 13: Ian Sutton on his OpenBSD GSoC project from last year (systembsd)
June 17 (note the date!): OpenBSD developer Ingo Schwarze (schwarze@) will be giving a talk and workshop on mandoc

Logging in sucks. Every place you enter your password is another chance for compromise, increasing your cross sectional area for attack. Common approaches include using utilities to manage and synchronize your passwords and keys adding another vector for attackers to exploit. Changing your password can become an all day or week endeavor of updating stored passwords, forgetting a service can lead to manual resets as the password used was lost to the mists of time. MIT created a solution for this almost 30 years ago, is an industry standard embraced by Microsoft, Oracle, and others; integrating and interoperating is typically just configuring existing software already on your machine!

David Cross has spent most of his professional career working with FreeBSD; First as the Laboratory Director for the Department of Computer Science at Rensselaer. From there he designed and supported the infrastructure for the website OkCupid. Recently he’s helped to develop the website whosay.com <http://whosay.com/> that lets celebrities syndicate themselves to the world of social media; and currently helps people receive their e-commerce orders on time by working on the Platform and Pipeline teams at CommerceHub.
