Secure Shell (SSH)

SSH (Secure Shell) is a secure means, mainly used on Linux and other UNIX-like systems, to access remote systems designed as a replacement for a variety of insecure protocols (e.g., telnet, rlogin etc). This presentation will cover the core usage of the protocol, its development (SSH-1 and SSH-2), the architecture (client-server, public key authentication), installation and implementation, and some handy elaborations and enhancements, and real and imagined vulnerabilities. Plenty of examples will be provided throughout along with the opportunity to test the protocol.

Lev Lafayette is the HPC and Training Office at the University of Melbourne, which includes responsibility for the cloud-HPC hybrid, 'Spartan'. Prior to that he worked in a similar role at the Victorian Partnership for Advanced Computing (VPAC). He has had a little bit to do with LUV for more than a decade. Outside of the technical world, he enjoys stirring the possum in real-world politics, playing and designing simulation games, and most recently has developed an interest in languages.

There will also be the usual casual hands-on workshop, Linux installation, configuration and assistance and advice. Bring your laptop if you need help with a particular issue. This will now occur BEFORE the talks from 12:30 to 14:00. The talks will commence at 14:00 (2pm) so there is time for people to have lunch nearby.

The meeting will be held at Infoxchange, 33 Elizabeth St. Richmond 3121 (enter via the garage on Jonas St.) Late arrivals, please call (0421) 775 358 for access to the venue.

LUV would like to acknowledge Infoxchange for the venue.
