In this highly interactive session, you’ll learn how Red Hat collaboratively works with the National Security Agency (NSA), Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), and other stakeholders to develop government and industry policy to secure Red Hat products using open source principles. In addition, you’ll hear how a similar methodology can be applied to other government and industry regulations like PCI, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX).
Using the SCAP (Security Content Automation Protocol) Security Guide as a case study, you’ll also learn how human-interpreted policy can be embodied in machine-interpreted SCAP. See how that same SCAP content can be used to help securely lock down systems when provisioned and aided with continuous monitoring using Red Hat Satellite. The DISA STIG (security technical information guide) for Red Hat Enterprise Linux will also be used as a case study in this session.

Co-located with Red Hat Summit, DevNation offers an agenda tailored to application developers and maintainers who build with open source. Attendees from both events will be able to attend sessions in this track, which will offer sessions relevant to both audiences.
Red Hat JBoss BRMS provides a powerful complex event processing (CEP) module that can be used to detect complex patterns in streams of events. The high availability of these CEP systems is critical when used in applications like fraud detection and health monitoring systems.
In this season, Duncan Doyle will:
