Using Accounting Data To Improve Security

Monday, May 9, 7-9 pm

Haral has made available a copy of his slides.

Major companies and government agencies commonly use system accounting data to bill individual departments for their users' time on common servers. At the May meeting of UUASC-OC, our own security expert, Haral Tsitsivas, will show us how that collected data can be used to enhance system security.

Haral will discuss the availability of system, accounting, and chargeback data on various platforms, and how maintaining a high level of system security is an on-going process that requires understanding of the computing environment and proactive administrative policies that constantly monitor for unusual events that may signal a potential security breach.

Haral is a principal consultant with UniSolutions Associates, and has 23 years of UNIX experience, including systems administration, software development, and security. He has worked on chargeback systems and implementations for 17 years, and holds a GIAC GSEC security certification.
