After a crazy cab ride from the train station I arrived at a hotel that
is in the general area of SouthEast LinuxFest (SELF) but not
co-located. *sigh* This side of Charlotte isn't as
pedestrian-friendly as it could be.
The first day (Friday) of SELF was pretty good. I generally stayed
close to the security track which included talks on DNSSEC, IPv6, and a
history of information security. All very interesting and, specifically
the IPv6 talk, got my head going. Being a former network guy I hadn't
had to think about the impact and possibilities of IPv6 on enterprise
networks and the infrastructure that resides on those networks. I also
learned of a "new" firewall that deserves a closer look.
On the Fedora front, I was able to work on a few Docs Project pieces
that needed some collaboration to get straight. I'm also talking up my
thoughts on implementing a process to help manage (and close) security
bugs within Fedora.
I'm hoping day two is just as good as today was.
