Using DD and SDelete to securely delete data

Wednesday, November 16, 2011 - 3:00pm - 4:00pm

The holidays are coming up, how many of you will be getting new computers? What are you going to do with the old equipment? Donate it? Sell it on EBay? Recycle? Whatever your plans are for the old equipment, you should securely delete all the data on the machine before it leaves your possession. We will cover the use of DD to securely wipe all data on a drive. Since DD by itself is a quick session (10 minutes tops), we will also cover the use of SDelete to securely wipe single files or directories for those times when you are not trading out whole machines but just need to get rid of pieces of data.

Better Security for your Gmail account

Tuesday, October 25, 2011 - 2:00pm - 3:00pm

1-factor, 2-factor, multi-factor - too many terms and most people don't understand what it means and how it can make you more secure.

1-factor authentication is simple, we use it every day when we login to our workstations; it is something we know, like username and password. This simple authentication process is used for just about everything we use on the Internet: social networking, banking, email and gaming sites. But what is 2-factor authentication? How does it make me more secure? Why does Gmail ask me if I want to enable it? Aren't the secret security questions enough? Join MOREnet Security as we answer these questions and show you how to enable 2-factor authentication on your Gmail account. Once you have the basics, you will want 2-factor authentication everywhere!

Reading and Understanding MRTG and Netflow

Wednesday, August 17, 2011 - 3:00pm - 4:00pm

When was the last time you checked your MRTG and Netflow information? Do you know the baseline bandwidth usage for your network? How can you plan for a bandwidth upgrade if you don't know how much bandwidth you are using? Do you have a problem with certain network traffic or do you suspect that users are doing file sharing on your network? The answers to most of these questions can be found inside of your MyMOREnet page, in the MRTG and Netflow data that we provide to you. If you don't understand what this data is telling you, then you should come to this web seminar! We will describe both tools and then show you examples of how to use them to investigate possible problems on the network.

World IPv6 Webseminar

Wednesday, June 8, 2011 - 3:00pm - 4:00pm

 IANA distributed the last IPv4 blocks back in February of this year. We thought there would be 12-18 months of time left before the Regional Internet Registries exhausted their pool of addresses. However, APNIC has already announced they are out of IPv4 addresses. This means there are portions of the world where IP connectivity is limited to only IPv6. Are you ready for this change?

This session will cover the high-level aspects of IPv6 adoption that your organization should be considering. We did this presentation at the 2011 Spring MOREnet conferences and had very good feedback. Come join us as we talk about the key points MOREnet members should be considering, what you should have already done, how to get caught up and where you should be moving in order to be ready for the request you know is coming "Why can't I get to this site?"!!

Oh yeah, IPv6 addresses look quite a bit different than IPv4 addresses. Here are some examples:

IPv4 207.160.133.110
IPv6 2610:e0:c002:200:f97b:c811:db85:ce3f (Preferred)
or     fe80::38dd:f8f:a9d6:a842%11(Preferred)

Not so easy to type. And, there are 340 Undecillion addresses (340,282,366,920,938,463,463,374,607,431,768,211,456) in IPv6 address space, so tracking them is going to be difficult. Time to consider some different tools. Time to Think6!!
