* Adrian Close: Automated Linux Firewall Failover
Automated Linux Firewall Failover
OK, so you've built a firewall out of a Linux box and it works great.
But what happens when you need to install a kernel update, or do some
hardware maintenance, or the cosmic rays hit that particular part of
your motherboard and cause a failure? You'd like your network to keep
on ticking of course, so you need a backup firewall, and ideally it
would just kick into gear without any human encouragement.
Adrian will talk about some ways to build such a beast [ab]using Linux
tools you probably already have.
Adrian Close has worked in the local Internet industry for the last 25
years or so, doing *nix sysadmin, security and networking, and generally
just trying to make stuff work. He has a particular fascination with
redundant network setups with automatic failover, possibly because he
also likes to sleep.
Many of us like to go for dinner nearby after the meeting, typically at
Brunetti's or Trotters Bistro in Lygon St. Please let us know if you'd
like to join us!
