The latest release of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) was published last week.
I’ve been working through some patches to OpenStack-Ansible lately to optimize how we configure yum repositories in our deployments.
I merged some initial Debian support into the openstack-ansible-security role and ran into an issue enabling AppArmor.
I opened up a noVNC console to a virtual machine today in my OpenStack cloud but found that the console wouldn’t take keyboard input.
The OpenStack Summit wrapped up today in Boston and it was a great week!
Although OpenStack-Ansible doesn’t fully support CentOS 7 yet, the support is almost ready.
DISA’s final release of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7 Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) came out a few weeks ago and it has plenty of improvements and changes.

IBM Interconnect 2017 is coming up next month in Las Vegas.
My OpenStack cloud depends on Ubuntu, and the latest release of OpenStack-Ansible (what I use to deploy OpenStack) requires Ubuntu 16.
When I came back from the holiday break, I found that the openstack-ansible-security role wasn’t passing tests any longer.
Thanks to everyone who attended my talk at the OpenStack Summit in Barcelona!
Welcome to the fourth post in the series of What’s Happening in OpenStack-Ansible (WHOA) posts that I’m assembling each month.
IBM Edge 2016 starts next week in Las Vegas with an emphasis on changing how we think about technology.
Welcome to the third post in the series of What’s Happening in OpenStack-Ansible (WHOA) posts that I’m assembling each month.
OpenStack’s compute service, nova, manages all of the virtual machines within a OpenStack cloud.
I ran into an interesting problem recently in my production OpenStack deployment that runs the Mitaka release.
The OpenStack Zuul system has gone through some big changes recently, and one of those changes is around how you monitor a running CI job.
This post is the second installment in the series of What’s Happening in OpenStack-Ansible (WHOA) posts that I’m assembling each month.
If you want to learn more about load balancers and security hardening in OpenStack clouds, join me on Thursday for the Rackspace Office Hours podcast1!
The 2016 Red Hat Summit is underway in San Francisco this week and I delivered a talk with Robyn Bergeron earlier today.
The Red Hat Summit starts this week in San Francisco, and a few folks asked me about the sessions that they shouldn’t miss.
The world of OpenStack moves quickly.
Lots of work has gone into the openstack-ansible-security Ansible role since I delivered a talk about it last month at the OpenStack Summit in Austin.
Although there are a few weeks remaining before Fedora 24 is released, you can test out the Fedora 24 Beta release today!
NOTE: This post is a work in progress.
When you’re ready to commit code in an OpenStack project, your patch will eventually land in a Gerrit queue for review.
Today is the second day of the OpenStack Summit in Austin and I offered up a talk on host security hardening in OpenStack clouds.
OpenStack comes home to Austin on Monday for the OpenStack Summit!
Thanks to all of the contributors that helped make a new release of supernova possible!
The blog posts have slowed down a bit lately because I’ve been heads down on a security project at work.
If you use Fedora, you will soon be able to install supernova via a Fedora package!
I started supernova a little over three years ago with the idea of making it easier to use novaclient.
The first supernova commit to GitHub appeared just over two years ago.
I’ve added some grouped environment support for supernova tonight.
A supernova user ran into a tough problem where supernova didn’t seem to obey a configuration within the supernova configuration file.
I just pushed supernova 0.
You’ll find version 0.
I was shocked to see Robyn Bergeron’s email today about Seth Vidal’s passing.
The 2013 Red Hat Summit was my second one and I enjoyed it more than last year.
This is my 500th post on this blog!
Python’s virtual environment capability is extremely handy for situations where you don’t want the required modules for a particular python project to get mixed up with your system-wide installed modules.
Troy Toman delivered a great keynote this morning about OpenStack and how Rackspace uses it:
Connecting to an OpenStack Swift instance that is using swauth for authentication is quite easy within Cyberduck on the Mac.

Thursday has felt like the busiest, most jam-packed day of the week.
It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Twitter and OpenStack.
While working on multiple nova (OpenStack Compute) environments at Rackspace, I found myself thrashing between multiple terminal windows where I had exported environment variables for python-novaclient to use.
I sometimes enjoy living on the edge occasionally and that sometimes means I keep up with OpenStack changes commit by commit.
