  • Red Hat Beefs Up Low-Code Offerings for Enterprises

    Red Hat, a provider of enterprise open source solutions, has introduced a decision management platform and low-code development tool intended to simplify the development and deployment of rules-based applications and services. Red Hat Decision Manager 7 is the next generation of the company’s business rules management offering, Red Hat JBoss BRMS, and is designed to enable organizations to quickly build applications that automate business decisions.

    “The notion of low-code development is less about eliminating code or cutting traditional programmers out of the application development process, and more about helping business and IT users to do what they need to do quickly and efficiently, and in a complementary manner,” said Mike Piech, vice president and general manager of middleware for Red Hat. “Ultimately, what low-code tools should offer - and what we have built with Red Hat Decision Manager - is not a platform geared toward one or the other, but rather a rich and tightly integrated feature set designed to provide a better user experience regardless of whether you are a business analyst or hard-core developer.”

    The Fedora Marketing Team is continuing with the Fedora Podcast and we have a new episode out. This ongoing series will feature interviews and talks with people who make the Fedora community awesome. These folks work on new technologies found in Fedora. Or they produce the distribution itself. Some work on putting Fedora in the hands of users.

  • OpenMandriva Switching Back From RPM5 To RPM4

    It was seven years ago that Mandriva 2011 switched to using RPM5 from RPM4, but now for the next OpenMandriva release they are transitioning back to using RPM4 and with that making use of Fedora's DNF.

  • Switching to RPMv4

    Cooker and 3.0 may be broken for upcoming days, as we need to adapt our docker builders and scripts to RPM4 and dnf.

  • An overview of Project Atomic

    Terms like "cloud-native" and "web scale" are often used and understood as pointless buzzwords. Under the layers of marketing, though, cloud systems do work best with a new and different way of thinking about system administration. Much of the tool set used for cloud operations is free software, and Linux is the platform of choice for almost all cloud applications. While just about any distribution can be made to work, there are several projects working to create a ground-up system specifically for cloud hosts. One of the best known of these is Project Atomic from Red Hat and the Fedora Project.

    The basic change in thinking from conventional to cloud-computing operations is often summed up as that of "pets versus cattle". Previously, we have looked at our individual computers as "pets", in that we think about them as individual entities that need to be protected. If a server went down, you would carefully fix that server, or in a worst case replace it with a new host by copying over a backup. In a cloud environment, we can create and destroy hosts in seconds, so we take advantage of this by treating those hosts as largely disposable "cattle". If a host encounters a problem, we just destroy it and create a new host to take over its function.

    Closely coupled with this paradigm shift is a move to containerization. Container systems like Moby (formerly known as Docker) or rkt allow you to deploy software by packaging it into an image, similar to a very lightweight virtual machine, complete with all dependencies and system configuration required. Containerized, cloud-based deployments are quickly becoming the most common arrangement for web applications and other types of internet-connected software that are amenable to horizontal scaling.

Red Hat: The Open Organization and More

  • The Open Organization

    I really enjoyed the way the power of purpose is put into the book. The other idea was the idea of Meritocracy being introduce to me, I got know merit means having an amazing idea and idea being the sole reason of doing a certain action. Better ideas win, they are questioned and that is how innovation happen in the organization. People debate over it question it trash it. People just don’t settle for something to avoid conflict and that is what the culture that has creeped in the organization where people don’t give way to debates just to avoid conflicts so that everyone remains happy. It was so amazing to read those stories where someone thought out of the box and wanted to bring a new way of doing things and how he needs to convince everyone that this is the right way of doing things, give it a try.

  • Let's talk about PCI-DSS

    For those who aren’t familiar with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS), it is the standard that is intended to protect our credit card data as it flows between systems and is stored in company databases. PCI-DSS requires that all vulnerabilities rated equal to, or higher than, CVSS 4.0 must be addressed by PCI-DSS compliant organizations (notably, those which process and/or store cardholder data). While this was done with the best of intentions, it has had an impact on many organizations' capability to remediate these vulnerabilities in their environment.

    The qualitative severity ratings of vulnerabilities as categorized by Red Hat Product Security do not directly align with the baseline ratings recommended by CVSS. These CVSS scores and ratings are used by PCI-DSS and most scanning tools. As a result, there may be cases where a vulnerability which would be rated as low severity by Red Hat, may exceed the CVSS’ recommended threshold for PCI-DSS.

  • Cisco, Intel, Red Hat take aim at closed 5G radio systems

    Cisco has used Mobile World Congress 2018 to tout a group of vendors working on open tech for the mobile radio access network.

    “Virtual RAN” – Radio Access Network – refers to a shift in base station architecture away from proprietary functions running on vendor-specific base station hardware.

    vRAN remakes the mobile network on the principles of the International Telecommunication Union's (ITU's) network function virtualisation (NFV) standards: the base station becomes a minimally-featured radio unit, with baseband, management, and subscriber functions on shared, virtualised, general-purpose computers in the carrier core.

    The next SEO experiment I’d like to discuss results for is the MDN “Competitive Content Analysis” experiment. In this experiment, performed through December into early January, involved selecting two of the top search terms that resulted in MDN being included in search results—one of them where MDN is highly-placed but not at #1, and one where MDN is listed far down in the search results despite having good content available. The result is a comparison of the quality of our content and our SEO against other sites that document these technology areas. With that information in hand, we can look at the competition’s content and make decisions as to what changes to make to MDN to help bring us up in the search rankings.

EUPL planned actions

A revised set of guidelines and recommendations on the use of the open source licence EUPL v1.2 published by the Commission on 19 May 2017 will be developed, involving the DIGIT unit B.3 (Reusable Solutions) and the JRC 1.4 (Joint Research Centre – Intellectual Property and Technology Transfer). The existing licence wizard will be updated. New ways of promoting public administrations' use of open source will be investigated and planned (such as hackathons or app challenges on open source software). The target date for the release of this set of guidelines on the use of the European Public Licence EUPL v1.2, including a modified Licence Wizard, is planned Q2 2018. Read more

Security: Dropbox, FUD, CNCF, 'Cloud'

  • Dropbox has some genuinely great security reporting guidelines, but reserves the right to jail you if you disagree

    Dropbox's position, however reasonable in many of its aspects, is woefully deficient, because the company reserves the right to invoke DMCA 1201 and/or CFAA and other tools that give companies the power to choose who can say true things abour mistakes they've made.

    This is not normal. Before DRM in embedded software and cloud connectivity, became routine there were no restrictions on who could utter true words about defects in a product. [...]

This round of tests were done on Windows 10 Pro, Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, and Clear Linux when having an up-to-date system on each OS where there is Spectre/Meltdown protection and then repeating the same benchmarks after reverting/disabling the security functionality.
