"CIF is a cyber threat intelligence management system. CIF allows you to combine known malicious threat information from many sources and use that information for identification (incident response), detection (IDS) and mitigation (null route). The most common types of threat intelligence warehoused in CIF are IP addresses, domains and urls that are observed to be related to malicious activity. More can be found by continuing on to What is CIF? and some history" - imabonehead from Bookmarklet

Microsoft to open source 'Orleans' in early 2015 | ZDNet - http://www.zdnet.com/article...
"Microsoft has announced it will open source Orleans, its distributed cloud-programming model best known for being used on Halo 4. Orleans, a project from Microsoft's eXtreme Computing Group, has been simmering away for several years now and has been occasionally demoed to developers. The programming model gained some attention last year after the eXtreme Computing Group revealed it deployed Orleans for Microsoft's Halo 4 team. According to the Orleans team, the programming model has now been used in production within Microsoft for nearly three years as part of Halo Reach and Halo 4 backend services." - imabonehead from Bookmarklet

"Now that the root DNS servers are signed, I thought it was time I started using DNSSEC on my own PC. However, not wanting to wait for my ISP to enable it, I decided to setup a private recursive DNS resolver for myself using Unbound." - A. T. from Bookmarklet
FreeIPA 4.1.2 в Fedora 21 по умолчанию настраивается как DNSSEC-enabled сервер DNS просто указанием --setup-dns. - боффин идентичности
вот да, важны и сервер и массовость установки клиента - у нас Tivi.fi говорит клиент стоит у 0.06% пользователей. http://www.infocrea.fi/blogi... Я вот решил поставить, и это заняло какое-то время с разминкой мозгов. Чего и вам желаю. Вот оф фикоры письмо подметное https://domain.fi/info... На поверку же ни Гугл, ни ФБ себя не отдают в DNS SEC записях :( - A. T.
поигрался, ага... оно так начало флудить в локальной сети в офисе, что все начало дико тормозить на старте браузера... пришлось все убрать :( - A. T.
Undound? Флудить? Как то вы очень неправильно его готовите, он вполне годный. - citrin
я неверно выразился. просто после suspend -> wakeup цикла на лаптопе через какое-то время пришлось перезапустить браузер. Он вроде не фетчит сами табы, но DNS requests делает. И таким макаром DNS умер. то есть совсем. глянул в трафик и понял что оно нарождало запросов по wakeup несколько сотен, то есть на каждый таб перезапущенного браузера... оказалось проще прибить, чем ждать пока оно само прочухается. - A.

"Barrelfish is a new research operating system being built from scratch and released by ETH Zurich in Switzerland, with assistance from Microsoft Research. We are exploring how to structure an OS for future multi- and many-core systems. We are motivated by two closely related trends in hardware design: first, the rapidly growing number of cores, which leads to a scalability challenge, and second, the increasing diversity in computer hardware, requiring the OS to manage and exploit heterogeneous hardware resources." - imabonehead from Bookmarklet

"Microsoft today announced plans to open source .NET, the company's software framework that primarily runs on Windows, and release it on GitHub. Furthermore, Microsoft also unveiled plans to take .NET cross-platform by targeting both Mac OS X and Linux. In the next release, Microsoft plans to open source the entire .NET server stack, from ASP.NET 5 down to the Common Language Runtime and Base Class Libraries. The company will let developers build .NET cloud applications on multiple platforms; it is promising future support of the .NET Core server runtime and framework for Mac and Linux. Microsoft is also making Visual Studio free for small teams." - imabonehead from Bookmarklet

Industry titans band together to improve open source ·  LinuxGizmos.com
"Facebook, Google, Twitter, GitHub, Walmart, and others have formed a group called TODO, designed to standardize and improve open source releases." - imabonehead from Bookmarklet
"The TODO (Talk Openly Develop Openly) group was announced with a somewhat vague mission statement to address challenges “including ensuring high-quality and frequent releases, engaging with developer communities, and using and contributing back to other projects effectively.” Despite the name of the group, the main focus appears to be less about openness than on streamlining and perhaps standardizing procedures around open source version control, maintenance, and contributions." - imabonehead

GCC wins lifetime achievement award - and also takes heat from Linus Torvalds | ITworld
"The GNU Compiler Collection, better known as GCC, was recently awarded the ACM’s Programming Languages Software Award for 2014. The award is granted annually to individuals or institutions that develop software which has a “significant impact” on the programming world. The award has only been given out since 2010 and GCC follows previous winners the Coq proof assistant (2013), the Jikes Research Virtual Machine (JRVM, 2012), Simon Peyton Jones and Simon Marlow for authoring the Glasgow Haskell Compiler (GHC, 2011) and Chris Lattner for developing the LLVM Compiler Infrastructure (2010)." - imabonehead from Bookmarklet

Linus Torvalds suspends key Linux developer - Network World - http://www.networkworld.com/news...
"An argument between developers of some of the most basic parts of Linux turned heated this week, resulting in a prominent Red Hat employee and code contributor being banned from working on the Linux kernel. Kay Sievers, a well-known open-source software engineer, is a key developer of systemd, a system management framework for Linux-based operating systems. Systemd is currently used by several prominent Linux distributions, including two of the most prominent enterprise distros, Red Hat and SUSE. It was recently announced that Ubuntu would adopt systemd in future versions as well." - imabonehead from Bookmarklet
