Armor Your Palace


A guide to securing your home and home network with inexpensive hardware, open source software and about 8 hours of dedicated time. This is a living document, updated on a regular basis to reflect additional best practice methodologies, tips and tricks as they become available.

In this guide, we will walk you through the process of building and configuring security systems to protect your home and home/office network through the use of motion-sensing digital security cameras, advanced firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and realtime notification mechanisms.

In a mere eight hours, we will endeavor to build and configure a moderately sophisticated wired and wireless home or office LAN with a DMZ for public-facing services, strong ingress and egress filtering for all connected subnets and a realtime risk management console with live monitoring and alerts by email and/or telephone!

Defcon Around the Corner, DC404 T-Shirts


dc404 - defcon atlantaWell, it’s that time of year again and Defcon’s just around the corner. I was actually planning on being in The Netherlands at the end of this month, which would have precluded my attendance, but with Beth moving to NY and the rest of our personal chaos, it was going to be too expensive and too hard to coordinate. So, I’ll be in Vegas after all! (Hell, I’ve been to the past seven Defcon’s minus the one I missed, don’t want to spoil a tradition, right?)

Also, anyone local to Atlanta should make sure and pick up a few DC404 T-Shirts, now available thanks to Fundable and the DC404 tequila committee. We’ll be having a couple of DC404 Events this year, so wear your shirts and show your support!
