Subject Statement of Purpose:
The common challenges we face as systems and network administrators tie us together, both in addressing the immediate problems of managing our servers, workstations, and networks, but also dealing with the resulting real world results of success or failure in our task. A vulnerability in a particular program is often documented in a security release that recreates the attack in a lab environment, but we all know that this can lead to real problems like a bank account being hijacked via identity theft, or a server that handles patient data crashing. Likewise, a poorly performing network or server can ruin a company, or cause hardship for the people needing access to the information that is provided. We share a challenge both in fixing our systems for technical reasons, but in also architecting a safer world for information storage, manipulation, and transmission. This site exists to assist with this challenge. x
