3. BSD High Availability tutorial (NYCBUG) – MP3

The BSD High Availability (HA) suite has some very handy and powerful features. However, as with all systems, there are certain considerations to be made when rolling out a HA implementation. This talk will focus on the security considerations when rolling out a BSD HA implementation.

The talk covers the following:

* An explanation of the BSD HA environment (CARP, pfsync, sasyncd)
* How these components, specifically CARP, function at a lower level
* Current and potential attacks against the HA environment, including some demos
* Security considerations when rolling out a HA implementation and applicable work-arounds
* Ideas on how to improve the security and flexibility of the BSD HA tool suite Download the MP3 file
