first_imgYou need two to Tango. Apparently, so does a secure IT infrastructure.A thriving enterprise needs a modern datacenter to successfully meet its business objectives. A key pre-requisite for a modern datacenter is a robust infrastructure security. And, for a robust security to be effective, it needs to be intelligently automated.The infrastructure security dilemmaAt its core, every enterprise is a data business. And data is vulnerable to malicious actors. An average data breach is costing organizations between $3M – $5M1. The impact of these breaches is not just financial but also a loss of trust. Both internally and externally.Enterprises have not had a lack of security tools. Multiple surveys have consistently shown enterprises have an average of 75 security tools. However, these tools struggle to work with each other or across the datacenter. This situation only gets worse. There is a looming shortage of security professionals with an estimated shortage of 3.5M skilled professionals by 20213.Enterprises are at a dire crossroads. Critical IT infrastructure faces security risk. The current tools are inadequate. And there are not enough security professionals in the industry.How are enterprises to conduct business in a safe, frictionless manner while protecting its business and customers?Two to TangoSuccessful enterprises have adopted two guiding principles to address this dilemma –Integrate security deep into the infrastructure To effectively integrate security into the infrastructure, one should start with the infrastructure components. One of the key  building blocks is  the server. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has recommends system designers to adopt the Cyber Security Framework4. This way security can be built into each and every subsystem. This enables systems to identify, protect, detect, respond and recover from malicious activities when they occur.Automate as much of this robust security as possibleIntelligent automation increases the efficiency and consistency of actions. Combining intelligent automation to the Cyber Security Framework makes for a robust IT infrastructure.Dell EMC has adopted these two guiding principles for all their PowerEdge server designs. Based on the Cyber Security Framework, Dell EMC has developed a Cyber Resilient Architecture to protect servers against cybersecurity attacks. Every PowerEdge server is made safer with a Cyber Resilient Architecture and supported by impressive security and automation features. Let’s examine a few of these innovative features.Securely protect from malicious activityEvery server undergoes routine BIOS and firmware updates. However, these routine maintenance activities present a vulnerability that malicious actors could take advantage of. To mitigate this, every PowerEdge server comes designed with an immutable silicon-based Root-of-Trust mechanism. This mechanism cryptographically verifies the authenticity of every firmware and BIOS update. A verification failure results in a rejection of the request and user notification.A similar automatic verification is conducted when the server is booted up as well. Key routine tasks are quietly but effectively verified. There are several automated security features including Chassis Intrusion Alert, Signed Firmware Updates, and Supply Chain Assurance that are deliberately designed to protect the server infrastructure.Diligently detect malicious activityIt is critical to determine if and when your servers are compromised. This requires visibility into the configuration, the health status of the server sub-systems. Any changes to BIOS, firmware and Option ROMs within the boot process should be detected immediately. To help automate this, PowerEdge servers employs iDRAC.The iDRAC is a dedicated systems hardware, to comprehensively monitor the server and take remedial action depending on the event. For example, one of the interesting and automated security checks the iDRAC provides is Drift Detection. System Administrators can define their server configuration baseline based on their security and performance needs. iDRAC has the ability to detect deviance from the baseline. It also helps repair the drift with simple workflows to stage the changes.System Administrators can proactively take action to keep their server infrastructure secure with multiple alerts and logs from iDRAC.Rapidly recover from malicious activityIn the event of a security breach, it is critical for enterprises to limit the damage and rapidly get back to normalcy. PowerEdge servers have a few features to support swift restoration to a known good state. The BIOS and OS recovery feature uses a special, protected area that stores the pristine images. This helps servers rapidly recover from corrupted OS or BIOS images. Additionally, the iDRAC stores a backup BIOS image that ensures “automated” and on-demand Cyber Resilient BIOS recovery. System administrators can easily restore the servers back to its original state immediately following an adverse event.If the server system needs to be retired or replaced, PowerEdge servers use System Erase to safely, securely and ecologically-friendly manner to erase sensitive data and settings. A brief overview of PowerEdge Security and AutomationAs the above examples highlight, robust security needs to be intelligently automated. And intelligent automation needs to have integrated security.IT takes two to Tango.PowerEdge servers come with a wide variety of such robust security and automated features including HW + interfaces (like TPM, SED drives) that the OS then uses to build an OS-level security infrastructure. IT Leaders have been referring to this popular guide to server security to calibrate their systems to best practices of keeping their critical infrastructure safe and secure. Does your critical infrastructure meet these considerations?Why not reach out to your Dell EMC rep for more information on how we can help you with your IT Infrastructure security.Sources:Report from Cyber Security Insiders – https://www.cybersecurity-insiders.com/portfolio/2017-ransomware-reportReport from IDG Communications – https://www.idg.com/tools-for-marketers/2018-security-priorities-study/Report from Cybersecurity Ventures – https://cybersecurityventures.com/jobs/NIST Cyber Security Framework – https://csrc.nist.gov/csrc/media/publications/sp/800-193/draft/documents/sp800-193-draft.pdflast_img read more

first_imgFrom February 22 to December 29 of 2016, 23-year-old Crozet, Va., native and recent Princeton University graduate Adam Geilker did something rather astounding: Setting out from the peak of Hightop Mountain in the Shenandoah National Park at high noon, he headed northward on the Appalachian Trail, hiking first to its terminus at Katahdin in Maine, then to the southern terminus at Springer Mountain in Georgia, whereupon he turned around and hoofed it right on back to Hightop. All told, the walk totaled over 4,400 miles—over 1,000 of which were completed barefoot.“I carried my own pack every step of the way and never slack-packed,” says Geilker. “I didn’t mail myself food or care packages, but hiked or hitched into town for resupply. And I didn’t use paid shuttles—although that was based more on frugality than any kind of purist principles.”His gear was also simple and self-reliant. It included a homemade wooden backpack; 10-inch bowie knife constructed from an iron railway spike and deer antler; self-welded hiking poles, trowel, and frying pan; knee-high pair of muck boots followed by shoeless-ness then 3D-printed sandals; military surplus body-bag as bivy sack; and a self-sewn tunic. Taken collectively, the setup weighed around 70 pounds. His do-it-yourself approach earned Geilker his trail name: “Handmade.”“I made the backpack prior to freshman fall orientation at Princeton,” says Geilker. “The college does this big, kind of iconic hiking trip every year. I didn’t want to be the guy carrying his dad’s old hand-me-down pack from the 70s, so I decided to make my own.”Geilker was pursuing a degree in mechanical engineering, and he “worked maniacally for something like 80 hours” to construct a custom external-framed backpack. First, he harvested with an axe a 6-inch diameter white oak for the frame, which he subsequently split, ran through a planer, and shaped with a jigsaw, drawknife, carving knife, and rasp into two uprights. Using the remaining chunks from the log, he fashioned cross-braces which, like an antique chair, were connected to the frame by means of mortise and tenon joints. For the pack, he used an old denim jacket reinforced with leather. Straps were made of recycled U.S. Army webbing, with buckles gleaned from old laptop bags and throwaway backpacks. While the unit weighed 10 pounds empty, aesthetically it looked more like an artifact from a Kerouac novel than a garage project pulled off on the cheap.However, Geilker’s intentions for the pack wound up unfulfilled. “The weekend of the camping trip it rained and they canceled the event,” he said. “But when I graduated and decided to hike the A.T., carrying the pack seemed appropriate—like a full-circle gesture connecting everything together.”He saw his A.T. hike as a one-time post-college rite of passage. “There’s this saying on the trail that goes, ‘Hike your own hike,’” he said. “When I was setting out to do this, I really took that seriously. I wasn’t—and still am not—planning on doing another thru-hike like this one, so, if I was going to do it this one time, I wanted to approach it in a way that was uniquely my own.”As you can imagine, in a realm dominated by hikers equipped with the latest most ultra-lightweight technologically advanced gear available, Geilker drew quite a bit of attention.“I met him on a stretch of trail outside of Hanover in New Hampshire,” said Sean Cardle, who was working on completing his own NOBO thru-hike at the time. “He had dirty blond hair, blue eyes, a wispy beard and was wearing this strange one-piece tunic that looked a bit like Peter Pan’s outfit, only brown.” Additionally, Geilker had on flip-flops and was carrying a full-sized axe. He looked pretty eccentric.”Geilker was using the axe to clear a section of trail littered with blowdowns. “He was cutting through thigh- and torso-sized trees by hand with an axe,” Cardle recalled.“I counted between 175 and 200 blowdowns over the course of a 75-mile segment of trail, which took about eight 16-hour days to cut through by hand,” Geilker explained. “I couldn’t stand to see a trail looking like that, so I did something about it.”Geilker tends to maintain a kind of no-nonsense pragmatism about his double thru-hike, describing the trip as more akin to a lengthy vacation than any sort of find-thyself self-discovery mission. “I set out from Crozet and hiked to the trail because, as an environmentalist, I couldn’t bear the thought of hitching a bus, plane, or train ride 1,300 miles to either end of the trail.”And yet, considering a trek that had him hiking through two winters and thousands of miles of mountains, Geilker doesn’t shy away from pointing out the philosophical virtues of spending that much time on the trail. “Our post-industrial society is somewhat alienating to the individual for two reasons. First, if you were to suddenly disappear, in many respects you’d just be replaced, which makes it feel like society doesn’t need you. Second, the basic necessities of life are so readily accessible that obtaining them sometimes fails to afford satisfaction. In other words, society can alienate you by giving the impression that it doesn’t need you and that you don’t even need yourself,” he mused. “But on the trail, I need food, water, and shelter—and other people—far more immediately than I do in typical day-to-day suburban existence. Not only do I appreciate these basic necessities far more on the trail, but I can appreciate my own agency in getting them. Fundamentally, I need me far more on the trail—my judgment and my physical ability constantly and directly translate into fulfillment of my needs, and are measured by my daily successes or shortcomings as a hiker. This sense of needing yourself and having greater agency is healthy, deeply satisfying, and serves as a kind of antidote to our day-to-day suburban existence.”Ultimately, while he confided the trek sometimes felt like a major indulgence, Geilker says he’s happy with what he accomplished and is confident that the experience will inform his life in a myriad of positive ways. “I’m not just a hiker,” he said. “I’ll take the tremendous personal capability I’ve shown on the trail and apply it to bigger, more significant situations throughout the rest of my life.”OESH SANDALSThree-thousand of Adam Geilker’s 4,400 A.T. miles were walked in two pairs of newly designed, 3-D printed OESH sandals he glowingly described as “the best shoes I’ve ever owned.” Geilker wore a pair of Athena Bubblegums—which are pink—for 1,000 miles and then a pair of black Artemis Obsidians for 2,000 miles.Developed through grant funding provided by the National Science Foundation, the sandals are the product of Dr. Casey Kerrigan’s obsession with human movement. A Harvard Medical School grad, Kerrigan published many scholarly papers based upon her research. “Eventually, I got fed up with the shoe industry continuing to make unhealthy shoes and decided we should make our own.”In 2010, Kerrigan left her job at the University of Virginia, where she’d become the first woman tenured professor to serve as the chair of the department of physical medicine and rehabilitation. The name OESH was a pun suggested by a friend whom, upon considering Kerrigan’s research and what it would mean for women’s footwear, said the M.D. was going to turn around and twist the s-h-o-e industry inside out. This spring will be the first time the company markets its new line of 3D printed sandals.“We make the sandals on demand, and we’re piloting for local customers who can come into the factory for assessment,” said Kerrigan. “We’ll take your measurements and assess your biomechanics, and design sandals specific for your body.”last_img read more

New indices to spur Africa investment

December 18, 2019 | mrhtxubs | No Comments

first_imgThe Sub-Saharan ex South Africa 50 (SSAXSA-50) index consists of the 50 top listed equity counters of 10 Sub-Saharan African stock exchanges. It covers the same as the above, but excludes Egypt, Morocco and Tunisia. With Africa increasingly seen as a key market of the future, Nedbank has launched three Africa indices to help investors tap into opportunities on the continent while containing the inherent risks. Growth forecasts for the continent by the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank are among the strongest in the world, while recent research from the Economist Intelligence Unit finds that out of the 20 fastest-growing countries, 15 are African, Nedbank said in a statement earlier this month. This growth is reflected in the increase in the number of African stock markets – up from just a few in 1983 to 20 today, backed by strong equity price gains due to fast-growing economies. “Placing investors at the forefront of the African Renaissance, the Nedbank range of African indices provides investors with an all-round solution to broadening their horizons into Africa.” Specifically designed for investors looking for ways to invest in the continent, the Nedbank Africa Equity Index Series, representing the performance of a broad-based range of African companies, encompasses all these requirements. Africa Equity Index Series 16 October 2009 To provide investors with a measure of the performance of energy, metals and mining producers operating on the continent, Nedbank Capital has launched the Nedbank African Mining Index Series, which accommodates six different commodity classes – diversified metals and mining, gold mining, platinum group metals, base metals, energy and other mining and minerals – and differentiates between major and junior producers. The series includes two indices: SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material Visser said such indices would need to provide investment managers with a legitimate benchmark and, as such, would have to ensure that performance was not skewed to predominant markets such as Egypt and Nigeria. Primarily providing performance benchmarks, the Africa Equity indices ensure that the heterogeneous nature of the wide range of African equities, markets and countries are captured. African Mining Index Series With a third of the world’s natural mineral resources on African soil, investors also require solutions that allow them to access African mining and exploration opportunities. “One of the most attractive features of this range of indices is that it covers all listed commodity producers that operate primarily on the African continent, irrespective of the domicile of the stock exchange listing,” says Nedbank. As a result, investors can gain access to an attractive selection of African metals and mining operations via first world financial markets – London, Sydney, Toronto, New York and Johannesburg. The two indices offer investors broad-based exposure to the largest, most liquid companies listed on stock exchanges in Africa, combined with the ability to capture new emerging markets in their early stages. It also creates a basis for structuring tradable products to provide access to Africa’s most exciting investment opportunities. The All Africa ex South Africa 100 (AAXSA-100) Index consists of the 100 top listed equity counters of 13 African stock exchanges, namely Botswana, Bourse Regionale des Valeurs Mobilieres (BRVM), Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mauritius, Morocco, Nigeria, Tunisia, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. “Equally important, the indices have to be investable to the extent that its performance should be replicable within reasonable limits, with specified minimum market cap and liquidity criteria and limits on exposure to individual stocks, specific markets and sectors,” she said. “Investors broadening their horizons into Africa need comprehensive, replicable and transparent indices, which measure the performance of the major geographical and economic segments,” Nedbank Capital’s Nerina Visser said at the bank’s Africa Investor Conference earlier this month.last_img read more

Rust 2018 Edition Preview 2 is here

August 26, 2019 | hpnymhct | No Comments

first_imgThe Mozilla team announced Rust 2018 Edition Preview 2 today, the final release cycle before Rust 2018 goes into beta. The new release explores features such as the cargo fix command, NLL, along with other changes and improvements. Rust is a systems programming language by Mozilla. It is a “safe, concurrent, practical language”, which supports functional and imperative-procedural paradigms. Rust provides better memory safety while still maintaining the performance. Let’s have a look at major features in Rust’s 2018 edition preview 2. The cargo fix command now comes as a built-in feature in Rust. This command is used during migration and addition of this new feature in Rust now further streamlines the migration process. Speaking of migration, extensive efforts have gone into improving and polishing the lints which help you migrate smoothly. Apart from that, the module system changes are now broken into several smaller features that help with independent tracking issues. There is no need of mod.rs anymore for parent modules Also, the extern crate is not needed anymore for including dependencies. Support has been provided for crate as a visibility modifier. Another new addition in the Rust 2018 edition preview 2 is that NLL or Non-lexical lifetimes has been enabled by default, in migration mode. NLL improves the Rust compiler’s ability to reason about lifetimes. It removes most of the remaining cases where people commonly experience the borrow checker rejecting valid programs. As per the Rust team, “If your code is accepted by NLL, then we accept it — if your code is rejected by both NLL and the old borrow checker, then we reject it– If your code is rejected by NLL but accepted by the old borrow checker, then we emit the new NLL errors as warnings”. In-band lifetimes have been split up in the latest release. Both rustfmt and the RLS have reached 1.0 “release candidate” status. For more information, check out the official release notes.
