Come see me at Lotusphere 2008 - Here are the 3 sessions I'm doing

By Andrew Pollack on 11/03/2007 at 03:16 PM EDT

I'm going to be giving three sessions this year, and I'm really excited by all of them. I really hope you'll come see them.

Linux for the IBM Lotus Domino Administrator -- Zombies & daemons aren't just for killing! This session is updated from last year and its my new favorite. So many people are using Domino on Windows servers more because they aren't comfortable with Linux than because they've made a choice that they like Windows better.

This session is designed to give the Linux newbie everything they need to be able to manage a Domino server on Linux, and still have some useful gems for those who think they know Linux already. You wouldn't think so, but last year we found out that the command line in Linux can be learned in a way that's actually funny. If you come to this session, seeing "-rwxr-wr--" won't confuse you ever again. From here, you can go on the Daniel's more advanced look at performance and debugging Domino on Linux.

Think you already know everything you need to run Domino on Linux? I can make the html directory replicate, can you?

Help Me With This One! Last year, we didn't get enough people filling out their pre-registration surveys indicate that they'd go to this one, then we ran out of space in the room. When you take the surveys this year, make sure to tell them you'll be here for this so we get a big enough room. Remember, "I am root, owner of all files!"

Best Practices for Creating a Secure IBM Lotus Domino Infrastructure -- After the Jumpstart, there are two sessions you have see for Security in the BP track. Gab's going to do one that goes into depth on many of the tools to do the things we talked about in the jumpstart. Don't miss that. I'm doing this one to cover the big picture you should be looking at. How and why you need to get control over your certifiers and user identity management. How and why you need to implement application ownership tracking, group member management and ownership, change controls, and admin controls. When I do security reviews at corporate customers, here's why things fall down. How to do things is important, why to do them is critical.

Understanding Security in IBM Lotus Notes and Domino -- Updated from last year, this is the Jumpstart that Gab & I do. It covers pretty much everything in just enough depth that you have the solid understanding of what you can do and what we think you should do. By understanding what the underpinnings of the tools are, you're ready to go deeper into the specific tools later in the week. We cover everything from what exactly certificates and public keys do, all the way up through the CA process, Policies (DCC), and some solid corporate policy theory.
