Welcome to the TriLUG home page. We are a LUG dedicated to the Triangle area including Durham, Raleigh, Chapel Hill, and Research Triangle Park. This site, along with our wiki, will enable you to keep abreast of TriLUG information (meetings, events, news), and to communicate with local Linux and FOSS (Free and Open Source) enthusiasts.

The primary modes of interacting with us: mailing list, IRC, or coming to the monthly meetings.

May 9th meeting: FreeIPA


Topic: FreeIPA
Presenter: Jeremy Agee & Chris Hudson
When: Thursday, May 9, 7pm
Where: Red Hat HQ, NCSU Centennial Campus, 1801 Varsity Dr, Raleigh, NC

Video: G+ Hangout Live and on YouTube [live stream and then archived on youtube]
Slides: Slides [ODP], Install Log [TXT], Demo Video [YouTube]

FreeIPA is an integrated Identity and Authentication solution for Linux/UNIX networked environments. A FreeIPA server provides centralized authentication, authorization and account information by storing data about user, groups, hosts and other objects necessary to manage the security aspects of a network of computers.

This talk will describe the different parts of IPA and what each one does:

  • What is an IdM system and why do i need one?
  • What do we need to manage?
  • overview of how do these parts work together NTP, LDAP, PKI, KDC, HTTPD, and DNS
  • client parts sssd, certmonger

The talk will then switch to a live demo of installing and configuring a FreeIPA server, and adding a client to the IPA infrastructure. The demo will cover CLI and Web UI for admins, dns management, krb5+nfs4 for file access, SSO for ssh + key management, and sssd caching for when IPA servers are unavailable (anyone use a laptop?).

If there is enough time after the demo, we can go into enterprise features like HBAC, sudo rules, Automount maps, selinux users, and AD cross-realm trusts.

What are the elements of an open source city? Learn how open source is influencing the open government movement in Raleigh. We’ll take a brief look at policy, participation, culture, and apps in Raleigh. You might be surprised how much is happening in the Triangle region, even if you're not a civic geek. I'll also talk about my book, The Foundation of an Open Source, and my successful crowdfunding campaign. This will very much be both a presentation and a conversation.

Sponsors
Pizza and drinks are sponsored by Fusion-io, and the room by Red Hat.

When: Thursday, March 14, 7pm
Where: Red Hat HQ, NCSU Centennial Campus, 1801 Varsity Dr, Raleigh, NC

Pulp creates and manages repositories of content, such as software
packages, and can push that content out to large numbers of machines.
Today Pulp manages RPM content (including srpm, drpm, etc.) and Puppet
modules, and many other types are on the road map. There is a
community project well under-way to implement Debian support.

If you want to locally mirror all or part of a repository, host your
own content in a new repository, manage content from multiple sources
in one place, and push content you choose out to large numbers of
clients, Pulp is for you!

http://www.pulpproject.org/

Michael Hrivnak works for Red Hat on the Pulp Project. With strong
experience in both software and systems engineering, he is excited to
be writing software for systems engineers. Michael is passionate about
open source software, live music, and reducing energy consumption.
