If you hadn't noticed theres a bit of a credit crunch on, it's affecting every aspect of life including provisioning of every aspect of government and military forces and their supporting services and solutions bodies. Governments and the military use en ever increasing amount of Open Source technologies, and a lot of platforms that have grown up with open APIs and that fit secure accreditation regimes.

We're talking DISA, STAX, how to get to secure PaaS using OpenShift and how we are helping defence (or defense for those over the pond that can't spell) get to secured accredited trusted PaaS.

David Egts has been on a podcast here before and appears weekly on the Red Hat Gunnar and David show that I listen to avidly. David recently wrote a great article about how military platforms should not be deployed on proprietary PaaS solutions and frameworks, if you haven't read it go do so before you listen to the podcast.

Thanks for this show also go out to Red Hat's Paul W Frields who wrote the amazing Pulsecaster that sits on Fedora and that I used in a very different split channel mode this week thats allowed me to get this remote podcast out fast and in great audio quality considering there is 6000 miles between the two people talking. Also this week both David and I are solely using Samson GoMic's and the entire thing as usual mixed using the free and open source Audacity DAW. The GoMic is a revelation if you don't know what I'm talking about follow the link.

Come back soon for two podcasts next week talking CloudForms with James Labocki and OpenStack with Rhys Oxenham.

Todays podcast is a must for anyone in Cloud who needs to understand high level security. I'm joined over the ether to my studio in Bath in the UK by Gunnar Hellekson and David Egts. We're talking access controls, SELinux, sVirt, hardening, security in Government and how we engage in Cloud, security and KVM, Common Criteria - the whole works.

We talk RHEV, RHEL, OpenShift, CloudForms, ManageIQ, auditing, logging, hardening, security - learn how Red Hat secure the important enterprise, Government and industry platforms - allowing our customers to sleep easy.

You cannot afford to miss this weeks show !

Gunnar is the Chief Technology Strategist in Red Hat's US Public Sector team, trusted by government and the military alike and David is one of our Principal Architects at Red Hat. They both "live eat breathe" security so this podcast is three of us who are very passionate about the topic.

And folks theres more, if you liked this podcast tune in to the first few episodes of Dave and Gunnar's new podcast - the appropriately named Dave and Gunnar show which you can listen to by following this link directly. I totally recommend it, great listening. I've been working with them over the last few months recommending kit and I really think this is a show you should be listening to on a regular basis. Gunnar and Dave have taken a totally different spin on podcasting that Rhys Oxenham and I have been planning since November to do monthly that I bought the kit to do - but we haven't had the time to do. Since Christmas we've been set up to make the changes I keep mooting, and this will happen.

It's so nice to be back in the studio able to control the level of audio again, seems like an age since I was sat at a mixing desk recording this stuff. Listening to this podcast you wouldn't think that David was in Ohio, Gunnar in Houston, Texas and me the other side of the pond, and all recorded produced and released using Fedora - no Mac's here folks.
