The September RRLug meeting had 10 members attending. We met at Rasmussen @ 6:30pm, but shifted the meeting to a classroom in order to use a whiteboard. Next month we will again return to the boardroom!
- Python Development – Calvin Schultz discussed and demoed a new automation framework he has been developing in Python. He also discussed many of the issues that you need to keep in mind when developing complex projects in the language.
- Linux BotNet Discussion – Joe Granneman of Illumination.io, our resident security expert gave a great discussion on the most recent Linux Botnet, its impact, attack vectors, and ways of protecting your Apache/Tomcat servers from its damaging effects. Joe provided a very enlightening look into the world of the Cyber Security Analyst.
- Open Source Security Opportunities – Joe Granneman also gave a discussion about his new security company, Illumination.io, and their needs for security talent with a focus on Linux/FOSS. They are seriously looking for individuals interested in doing security consulting, penetration testing, forensic analysis, and compliance.
We had a really good meeting and wished more of the members had been able to attend.
