North Bay Linux Users’ Group

general meeting

Enhancing Linux security with a Yubikey/Smart-Card

When: Tue January 09, 2018 07:30 PM to 09:00 PM

Speaker: Robert Thille

Location: O'Reilly Media

With more and more information coming out about how insecure nearly every computer is, come find out how to make your computer use just a bit more secure…

In this presentation, Robert will go over how to setup and use a Yubikey to store PGP keys and PKI certs such that without physical access theft of the keys is just about impossible, and even difficult with physical access.

Other security enhancements like hardware password stores (Mooltipass) and air-gapped machines will be covered. Further, I’m sure there will be discussion of the recently disclosed Meltdown and Specter attacks.
