  4. In this episode, our two ageing heroes host an eclectic panel of kernel contributors of a small, mostly unknown operating system called "Linux". The panelists hail from all over the planet (sadly, no money or love would buy Richard's or Linus' way onto that panel :-) but the discussion proves more than interesting regardless of these uber-nerds being absent. All will be revealed including the true age of Linux, one of Chris' secret obsessions (hint: it's not software bugs), Linus Torvald's thought process and evolution as such. Never mind Linux's second future high-level programming language... Plus: a philosophical discussion of the social impact of insulting from a pan-cultural perspective. Don't miss out on this!

  7. We look into what a Ceph implementation entails, what specific use-cases it excels at. And we also talk about the building blocks of the system. What kind of hosts is required for different Ceph daemons and the requirements regarding disk space, CPU, and memory. The services we are talking about are OSD (Object storage daemon), Monitors, Managers, and MDS (MetaData Services). Ceph can be used as an S3 compatible object store, disk storage, and even a file system, depending on your setup. If you are interested in diving deeper into the topic, I have created a couple of videos on the subject that might interest you. Getting started with Ceph storage cluster setup - Using the amazon s3 object storage API for local storage on Ceph - Doing an automatic upgrade of Ceph cluster using CephAdm - Looking into a manual upgrade of Ceph to Pacific - View the full article

Mailing List discussions Policy decisions surrounding HPR are taken by the community as a whole. This discussion takes place on the Mail List which is open to all HPR listeners and contributors. The discussions are open and available on the HPR server under Mailman.

Older HPR shows on The project to upload the older HPR shows to has been quiescent for a few years. The shows between 1 and 870 had not been uploaded prior to April 2021 (though some shows had been uploaded in batches in the early days, without notes etc). However, this old show project has been restarted this month, after new software had been written to help manage the process. At the time of writing 65 shows in the range 1-870 have been uploaded, with notes, and with the same range of audio formats used for current shows. Since we don't want to upload shows without summaries or tags the two projects are now tied together. So we will be all the more welcoming of tag and summary updates sent to the address referenced in the next section! The plan is to report the numbers uploaded each month in the AOB section of the Community News show notes. HPR shows on have the URL where XXXX is the show number with leading zeroes. So for example, show 840's URL is: Tags and Summaries Thanks to the following contributors for sending in updates in the past month: Dave Morriss, Windigo Over the period tags and/or summaries have been added to 23 shows which were without them. There are now 384 shows which need a summary and/or tags. If you would like to contribute to the tag/summary project visit the summary page at and follow the instructions there. View the full article

  11. Inoffensive in every region of the world Hello, again. This is Trey. This is part 1 of a 6 part series related to information security podcasts. Why am I recording this series? "What podcasts you listen to" was on the list of recommended topics I am passionate about information security We desperately need people to fill infosec jobs in many different specialties Infosec is a rapidly changing field, and it is critical to stay current As a result I listen to TONS of infosec related podcasts Because there are so many podcasts to list, I will break them down into 6 different episodes based on topics: Part 1 – News & Current Events Part 2 – General Information Security Part 3 - Career & Personal Development Part 4 – Social Engineering Part 5 - Hacks & Attacks Technical Information & Learning Infosec Community / Social / History Part 6 – Infosec Leadership Part 1 Infosec News / current events podcasts – Why? Stay aware of what is happening for your own personal growth If you already work in IT or Infosec, you can have early awareness about attacks to look for indicators of compromise, or learn new tools and techniques You can get a head start answering questions from leadership, when they ask about something they heard on the news or from a peer. SANS Internet Stormcenter Stormcast - Dr. Johannes Ullrich (Daily M-F) The latest Cybersecurity news Cyber Security Headlines (Daily M-F) Daily podcast with the latest Cybersecurity news Caps off Friday with a weekly review The Cyberwire - Dave Bitner (Daily M-F – Drops in afternoon) Daily podcast with the latest Cybersecurity news Shared Security Show – Tom Eston, Scott Wright, & Kevin Johnson (Weekly) News, tips, advice, and interviews with cybersecurity professionals and privacy experts.

The Security Ledger – Paul Roberts (Weekly) A weekly podcast mixing news and interviews Risky Business podcast - Patrick Gray and Adam Boileau (Weekly) Discusses the week's security news from the Land Down Under.
