Carnegie Mellon Computer Club Fall Talk Series

Firewalling with OpenBSD's PF Packet Filter

OpenBSD is a UNIX-like operating system descended from Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD), a Research Unix derivative developed at the University of California, Berkeley. It was forked from NetBSD by project leader Theo de Raadt in late 1995. PF is a BSD licensed stateful packet filter developed for OpenBSD as a replacement for Darren Reed's IPFilter. In this short presentation we will do a hands on OpenBSD installation and basic configuration of PF software which will enable us to identify and block network traffic which we do not want to let into our local network or let out to the world outside.

DEVOPS! Hippest of buzzwords, earner of thousands! Learn to harness the immense power of devops for yourself, by coming to the Fall 2015 Computer Club Workshop/Talk Series. We will tell you the tricks that will allow you to transcend the annoyances of administration and offenses of operations, and return to the elegant, pure simplicity of raw code!
These talks will take place every Wednesday starting at 8:00 PM in Wean Hall throughout the semester.
This schedule is also available as an iCalendar file which is compatible with all calendaring software.
