Central IdM of Cloud to Minimize Risks with Users and Structures

When administrators think about user management (IdM), they often only keep an eye on traditional IT systems. But even in the cloud, where you can buy new services with just a few clicks, it’s extremely important for companies to keep control over their users if they do not want to lose control over who has rights and access in the organization. Otherwise, a dissatisfied or dismissed employee can quickly become a real threat to the entire corporate IT. Or the failure of subsystems can mean that the entire IT can no longer be accessed and all processes in the company are stopped.

I Mattermost now…

I wrote the following article about the ChatOps solution Mattermost on November 26, 2017 for my own Blog “gestreift.net”. As Mattermost has been available in the Univention App Center for a few months now, Univention had the idea to publish this article here for your information, too.

And here we go:

It’s just over a year now since I first wrote about the popularity of Slacking und WhatsApping and explained how to install Rocket.Chat. For a number of reasons, I stumbled across Mattermost a while ago and the time has come to pen a few lines on the how and the why…

Two outdated IT islands were causing problems time and time again at the SchwuZ, a cultural event organizer in Berlin. The existing IT infrastructure at the club was more like a mishmash of decentralized servers and software than an efficient and secure IT server environment. For this reason, the SchwuZ decided to remedy the situation and switched over to new services and state-of-the-art software which run virtually on the basis of Univention Corporate Server. This finally made it possible to establish a productive and reliable IT basis.

We here at bitpack.io accompanied the project from start to finish and would like to present it to you today.

The Univention App Center makes it easy to install and set up a sophisticated collaboration solution on a stable basis. Univention Corporate Server (UCS) offers this basis – also for the integration with other open source solutions. EGroupware was created in 2003 and is thus one of the early collaboration solutions in the open source spectrum. For this reason, the product does not use proprietary formats at any point, but only open standards. At the same time, EGroupware uses other open source products as a basis, such as the LDAP directory service, Samba‘s file and print services and the MariaDB database. The open, cooperative approach to software development facilitates the integration of the groupware with UCS and other open source solutions.

Let’s Encrypt – Making the Internet That Little Bit Securer Every Day

a free, automated, open source certificate authority

Launched in 2014 by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the University of Michigan, and Mozilla, the Let’s Encrypt project recently issued its 100 millionth automated, free certificate and is thus truly living up to its slogan of “Encrypt the entire web”.

In the aftermath of the Snowdon revelations of 2013, Let’s Encrypt declared its goal of making SSL/TLS certificates available for everyone on the Internet and promoting free encryption on the web. Since then, the project has won over a wide range of notable companies and acquired sponsors such as Akamai and Cisco as well as most recently Netflix.
