Long-term experience of teaching in the Information security direction (further IB) allows to state positive tendencies in this area:

  • Owners of business, at last, began to consider risks as so significant IB as financial and operational, and even more often look for not only the entrusted, but qualified advisers at a position of the CSO level (Chief Security Officer)
  • Normative approach to creation of systems of protection allowed IB to become in large quantities the consumed service
  • Explosive growth of risks of IB supports steadily great demand and the sentence in the market of services of training in the corresponding direction


In time it is available also negative:

  • It is also difficult to confirm the qualification in IB today, in particular if successful experience is got in the CIS countries, and the potential employer is in USA \Europe
  • Mass character leads to IB konsyyumerization problem
  • Quality of services of training and skill level of specialists falls


As a result there is whole staff of divisions of providing IB from which on all hierarchy levels, since a security administrator and graduating from the head, thoughtlessly fulfill requirements of standards of safety, without thinking of the proof of security of an automated system after their execution.

This article shows possibilities of evidential approach for creation of the protected automated systems and has educational character.

As solder "bridges" and chips on motherboards by means of soldering station

1 year, 8 months ago
Sorting the first computers, many saw different "bridges" — southern, northern, graphic chips, and was often thought: and how it is soldered and, the main thing, than? And those who risked a soldering iron to try it bore then the materinka in service where it soldered the new chip if, of course, they did not kill with the house soldering all motherboard. So, how solder chips? Under a cat the story, and also a photo and video about it. In a leading role at us the soldering station ERSA IR550a will act.

EMC ViPR 2.1: data management of "the third platform"

1 year, 8 months ago


ViPR – an element of the program defined data processing center


ViPR implements for a data storage segment approximately the same that VMware made for a segment of servers – creates a possibility of abstraction of resources, forming of pools and implementation of automation for infrastructure. By means of VMware API interfaces the storage pools created in EMC ViPR are presented in VMware vSphere in the form of a simple array. Besides, the ViPR controller provides integration with VMware vStorage API for Storage Awareness (VASA), vCOps, and also with control facilities and orkestration of VMware SDDC, vCloud Automation Center and vCenter Operations Manager. Thus, in ViPR control of storage can be exercised as independent object which is represented per se in virtual environments of Microsoft and OpenStack, and within the program defined VMware data processing center.

Main goal of development of EMC ViPR was simplification and reduction in cost of management of the existing heterogeneous infrastructures of storage, and also creation of a simple data management system and data access in the distributed clustered file systems, for example, based on hadoop-clusters, and also in cloudy environments.

The video overview on setup Cisco UCS blade server

1 year, 9 months ago
It is considered to be that server solutions of Cisco UCS — it "is very difficult", "it is difficult in setup", etc. We have decided to demonstrate all simplicity of setup of such solutions.



Disclaimer: of course, all process of setup of blade of Cisco takes about 2 hours, we have noted the key and main moments. As direct, simple recording of all process of setup will not be interesting.

Disclaimer 2: it is the video guide on setup of initial level, as for more profound studying "as from where grows" — it already subject of other video overview.
