Time Nick Message 01:45 pdurbin mhayden: https://major.io/2015/10/14/what-i-learned-while-securing-ubuntu/ is really good. I'd be curious to know if you ended up configuring a firewall (and if so, how). 01:50 mhayden pdurbin: thanks -- sounds like most folks use that iptables-persistent package 01:51 mhayden i really dislike ufw 01:51 mhayden a kernel dev i know told me "i used to use ufw but then i lost my box of crayons" 01:51 mhayden but yeah, this security on ubuntu experience has been rough 01:53 pdurbin searchbot: lucky iptables-persistent 01:53 searchbot pdurbin: https://www.thomas-krenn.com/en/wiki/Saving_Iptables_Firewall_Rules_Permanently 01:54 pdurbin I've been playing with Ubuntu a bit (again) and I was surprised that there was no firewall by default. 01:57 pdurbin ok, looks like iptables-persistent is listed on both of the pages I bookmarked. brief mention at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo and more detail at https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-a-firewall-using-iptables-on-ubuntu-14-04 07:26 hydrajump interesting read mhayden! 07:27 hydrajump Don't know if I've asked you already, but have you played with Alpine Linux http://www.alpinelinux.org/ ? 07:28 hydrajump I've started to use it for some project instead of ubuntu and really like the minimalism. Services don't start automatically as you mentioned on Ubuntu and you have to explicitly configure them to start on boot. 07:36 hydrajump Are you worthy? http://www.cnet.com/news/engineer-builds-working-thors-hammer-only-he-can-lift/ 12:22 mhayden hydrajump: i've heard of it, but that's about it 13:24 larsks hydrajump: I love alpine for building docker containers... 13:27 hydrajump larsks: have you used it for non-docker use-cases? 13:28 larsks hydrajump: I built a cloud image out of it that I could boot in openstack and have it autoconfigure an ssh key...and that's about it. 13:29 larsks I like it for docker because it's not really any bigger than the busybox images, but has a functional package manager. 13:29 hydrajump yeah that's true 13:29 hydrajump what host OS are you using for your docker workloads? 13:29 larsks I'm running Fedora 23 on my laptop, which is where I mostly use docker. 13:30 hydrajump ok 13:30 pdurbin I wonder if anyone is using Docker in production. 13:35 hydrajump pdurbin: there a many who've said so publicly such as Shopify 13:36 hydrajump there are many others... 13:47 pdurbin https://www.shopify.com/technology/15934308-docker-at-shopify-how-we-built-containers-that-power-over-100-000-online-shops 13:47 pdurbin hydrajump: thanks 13:52 hydrajump pdurbin: you're welcome ;) as I said there are many many companies using docker in production today. 13:52 hydrajump this is also a pretty cool use-case that you may find interesting https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Au_8wWA0ZQI 13:59 pdurbin hmm. "Containerising scientific software leads to fungible scientific methods which can be objectively compared and easily interchanged." 13:59 pdurbin yeah, skay might be into that too 14:09 skay pdurbin: url? 14:10 pdurbin skay: the youtube link ^^ 14:10 skay thanks 14:12 pdurbin http://nucleotid.es/using-images/ 14:12 pdurbin via http://jgi.doe.gov/automating-selection-process-genome-assembler/
