Lightning Talks

Teddy Hogeborn, Björn Påhlsson - Mandos

slide-show available on internet: http://www.slideshare.net/fscons2009/mandos

This will present the Mandos system, which allows computers to have encrypted root file systems and at the same time be capable of remote and/or unattended reboots. The computers run a small client program in the initial RAM disk environment which will communicate with a server over a network. All network communication is encrypted using TLS. The clients are identified by the server using an OpenPGP key; each client has one unique to it. The server sends the clients an encrypted password. The encrypted password is decrypted by the clients using the same OpenPGP key, and the password is then used to unlock the root file system, whereupon the computers can continue booting normally.

Ville Sundell - Presenting Zindium

This talk is a call for developers for a new, dynamic, distributed, and multipurpose language, which will be presented first at FSCONS. It is a project of HAMK University of Applied sciences (www.hamk.fi), and will be completely free software.

When presenting, the version will be mostly for testing and request for comments.
