Enterprise Linux Security takes a look at security-related topics in enterprise IT, with a special focus on Linux. Join Jay and Joao as they discuss Linux security in the ever-changing world of technology.
Enterprise Linux Security Episode 53 – Digital Twins
By using clever infrastructure engineering strategies to increase reliability, you can minimize disruption and downtime for your organization. Another technique to consider is the concept of Digital Twin - having a full system clone/mirror you can use to test enhancements, perform a root-cause analysis, or more. In this episode, Jay and Joao discuss Digital Twins and how the concept can potentially help your organization.
Enterprise Linux Security Episode 52 – AISecOps
Artificial intelligence seems to be all the rage nowadays, and not just in SciFi movies. Organizations can utilize AI to assist with difficult or time-consuming tasks. Now, AI has made its way into the security industry - and AI tools to check for security concerns are already starting to pop up. In this episode, Jay and Joao discuss AISecOps.
Enterprise Linux Security Episode 51 – Samba in the Kernel, What Could Possibly Go Wrong?!
Adding unnecessary components to the Kernel is generally a bad idea, as it increases its threat surface. In this episode, Jay and Joao discuss a recent story that's a perfect example of why it's important to keep this under control. A vulnerability was recently discovered in the Linux kernel that scored the highest possible rating, and it all started when ksmbd was added.
Enterprise Linux Security Episode 50 – The Many Faces of Patching
When it comes to patching, were you aware that there's more than one type of patch? In this episode of Enterprise Linux Security, Jay and Joao discuss the various types of patching that's performed today.
Enterprise Linux Security Episode 49 – The Code is Open, But Who’s Looking at It?
Open-Source is great - with code being open, everyone has access to it. That means that the code can be audited - and that makes it more secure, right? Well, possibly. In the recent talk "The Code is Open, But Who's Looking at it?" Joao discusses the concept in detail. This talk was recorded at OSAD 2022. New episodes of Enterprise Linux Security will resume after the holidays. But for now, enjoy the talk!
Enterprise Linux Security Episode 48 – New Malware, Old Vulnerabilities
While it's certainly never a good thing to become the victim of a cyber-attack, it can be even more embarrassing if the CVE the threat actor used to get a foothold into your systems was patched a long time ago. In this episode, Jay and Joao discuss malware that's currently taking advantage of vulnerabilities that were patched over a year ago! As important as software updates happen to be, why are so many organizations unable to keep up with them?
