The feature presentation for our ALE Central Meeting at
7:30pm on Thursday, Sept. 15th, 2011 will be:

The Keys to Using SSH
with David Tomaschik

— The Secure Shell, or SSH, is a powerful communications tool
most often used for securely accessing a command-line session
on a remote system. As essential as that functionality is, there is
much more to SSH than that. This talk will introduce SSH, and
discuss integral applications including secure file transfer,
accessing services behind a firewall, and running graphical
applications software remotely. Specific topics include:
– Starting with SSH
– SSH Keys
– Secure File Copying (SCP)
– Port Forwarding
– X11 Forwarding
– Advanced SSH options and functions

– David is a system administrator and Drupal developer at
Kennesaw State University. Additionally, he is currently
pursuing a M.S. in Information Security from Georgia Tech.
When he’s not at the computer (a rare event), he enjoys
sci-fi books and movies and amateur photography.

This is a reprise of the talk offered at ALE NW / SPSU
on Sept. 8th, though to better address the experienced
ALE Central audience some advanced topics are being
added. Slides of the original talk have been posted here:
