Introduction

All Linux lovers, and supporters of open source code and free software, in the Kanto area (or anywhere else) are invited to attend the next Tokyo Linux Users Group meeting. Membership is open to anyone. There are currently no membership dues or entrance fees.

TLUG meetings are traditionally small and unstructured (VERY CASUAL). Most of the benefit of the meeting comes from chatting with other Linux users and having informal discussions.

As a general rule, the Technical Meetings are held on the 2nd Saturday of odd-numbered months and the Nomikai Meetings are usually held on the 2nd Friday of even-numbered months. There are, of course, exceptions to this rule, so it is best to keep an eye on the mailing list, or check back here for date/venue changes as the date approaches.

Presentations
"Honeypots and other open-source security tools from the Honeynet Project" by Benny Ketelslegers

The Honeynet Project is a leading international security research organization, dedicated to investigating the latest attacks, developing open source security tools to improve Internet security and learning how malicious hackers behave. In this presentation, we will learn what kind of honeypots there are, how they are used and the insights they give into network/system attacks. Secondly, a run-through will be given of the (open-source) tools provided by the project and how to use them.

"Wakame-vdc" by Andreas Kieckens

Wakame-vdc is an open source IaaS system written in Ruby that runs on Ubuntu and OpenSolaris. During this presentation he will briefly explain what an IaaS system is and what advantages it has over a standard data centre. He will then cover several of Wakame's features and explain some of the bleeding edge software it uses. (such as virtualizing the network itself using OpenFlow.) If there's an internet connection available, there will also be a live demo.

Other items on the agenda
  1. Introduction of new members
  2. News about Linux/Open Source, general announcements, Q&A
  3. Auction (bring any gear that would would like to donate to TLUG)
