UKUUG/O'Reilly Tutorial: 'Building the network you need with OpenBSD's PF'
Wednesday 26th November 2008, London
This tutorial focuses on building the high performance, low maintenance network you need. Along the way we explore the whys and hows and cover all bases from the basic one machine configuration and basic local area networks, all the way up to configurations with traffic shaping and load balancing with "self-healing" networks and counter-measures against common problems such as DOS attempts and spamming.
A basic understanding of TCP/IP and some Unix knowledge is assumed. This tutorial will happen very soon after OpenBSD 4.4 is released and will be up to date with the latest release.
Who should attend? Those who use or are considering using PF on any BSD. It goes from the basics to advanced usage of the latest versions of PF, including traffic shaping using altq, and the supporting features for higher level services such as trapping spam via greylisting and http filtering, SSL proxying, and load balancing. PFs simplicity and ease allows those new to PF to understand it quickly, while refreshing the best practices in filtering for those who have used PF for years.
