Ike: Jail(8), a Secure Virtual Server
6-8 pm, Soho Apple Store at 103 Prince Street, New York, NY
Jail(8), a Secure Virtual Server.
Early unix mainframe computing brought elegant process and resource
sharing systems which helped get more application use out of expensive
hardware. These concerns have been largely been pushed aside in
computing with the rise of desktop PCs, and large farms of
ever-shrinking pizza boxes in the data center. Today, as more punch gets
packed into 1u than ever, server resources can be further consolidated
and abstracted to securely separate complex and sophisticated services
in the same hardware server, by running secure virtual UNIX machines.
FreeBSD Jails are a time-tested, secure, reliable UNIX virtual machine
with endless uses.
Who wants jails?
* System Administrators who need to securely separate small yet
* important services.
* Software Developers who always need more dev machines.
* System Architects who need affordable high-availability systems.
* Educators who could use virtual machines to provide clean unix server
* systems for student use.
* Anyone who wants *secure* virtual machines.
Why do these people want jail(8)?
* The design of Jail(8) and jail(2) are secure, and because jails use
native system utilities,
* they are simple to work with.
What I would like to focus on:
* How Jails Work, the technical low-down
* How to setup jails, the practical how-to, cooking show style...
* When NOT to use jails
* jail(8) security vulnerabilities/considerations
* Jails vs. Linux UML, XEN, VMware- technical and philosophical differences
* Tools and management practices
