Apple is fundamentally against creating a backdoor allowing US authorities to bypass smartphone encryption. However, companies alone deciding whether backdoors are acceptable will not result in increased data security for us. We need open encryption mechanisms which can also be modified by users in case of doubt.

In our App Center the new TecArt app, the first application based on the state-of-the-art “Docker” container technology for operation in UCS is now available. The app is stored in an isolated container, making it possible to run different software applications in the same server environment without conflicts.
I am glad, that TecArt is the first developer using our new Docker integration in the App Center. The encapsulation via Docker allows TecArt to satisfy the specific requirements on essential software libraries and their versions via the App Center without any complex maneuvers or additional efforts.
The app from the software developer TecArt is the first third-party supplier with Docker integration to be included in the App Center of the server management solution Univention Corporate Server (UCS). The innovative Docker container technology makes it possible to operate different software systems separately from each other in the same environment. These encapsulated apps offer a wide range of advantages in their use in terms of flexibility and security. The isolation creates an optimal and independent system configuration, which simplifies the integration of the TecArt Business software for UCS. The new app manages all the business information and the work and communication processes in companies in a structured, flexible, and centralized manner.
The Univention App Center now provides the update privacyIDEA 2.9-1 for UCS 4.1 and 4.0. This update includes the add-ons PAM und SAML.
View it now in the App Catalog.
In the IKU AV Mail and AV Proxy solutions there are now two new Univention apps for mail and proxy servers available from our partner in Saarbrücken, IKU. The apps are based on the multi-award-winning scan engine from Avira and can be integrated in existing UCS environments via the App Center.
Univention Summit 2016: Open Source Scene Came Together to Exchange Experiences with Clouds, School IT, and Apps
Bremen, January 25, 2016. Around 250 experts from software houses, cloud service providers, and IT service providers along with users met on Thursday and Friday in Bremen for the 8th Univention Summit. The event, which traditionally kicks off the Open Source scene year in Germany, was dedicated to the important topics of openness, transparency, and trust this year. The program of presentations, talks, and workshops was complemented by an accompanying exhibition offering software developers and hardware manufacturers the chance to present their solutions. Univention, the host of the event, announced that it would be opening its management platform Univention Corporate Server up to Office 365 and Google Apps for Work in 2016 and that it would also be continuing to focus on the expansion of the container technology Docker, which makes operation of the 75 enterprise apps now available in the Univention App Center even securer.
