Rootconf is HasGeek’s annual conference – and now a growing community – around DevOps, systems engineering, DevSecOps, security and cloud. The annual Rootconf conference takes place in May each year, with the exception of 2019 when the conference will be held in June.
Besides the annual conference, we also run meetups, one-off public lectures, debates and open houses on DevOps, systems engineering, distributed systems, legacy infrastructure, and topics related to Rootconf.
This is the place to submit proposals for your work, and get them peer reviewed by practitioners from the community.
Topics for submission:
We seek proposals – for short and long talks, as well as workshops and tutorials – on the following topics:
- Case studies of shift from batch processing to stream processing
- Real-life examples of service discovery
- Case studies on move from monolith to service-oriented architecture
- Network security
- Monitoring, logging and alerting – running small-scale and large-scale systems
- Cloud architecture – implementations and lessons learned
- Optimizing infrastructure
- Immutable infrastructure
- Aligning people and teams with infrastructure at scale
- Security for infrastructure

FreeIPA: The swiss army knife of open-source identity management
FreeIPA is used in the management of Linux user identities, groups, and passwords centrally with the help of a CLI as well as an easy to use GUI. FreeIPA provides centralized authentication, authorization, and account information for Linux and Unix network environments. It is built on top of well known open-source components like LDAP, KDC, PKI, etc. FreeIPA can seamlessly integrate with an existing Active Directory environment.
In this talk, We will cover the basics of FreeIPA and how to leverage FreeIPA in a production environment and address the concerns of an organization pertaining to compliance, security and risk mitigation.
- FreeIPA Introduction
