Linux has been used for network routing for many years, but the interface is different than the standard network appliances. Vyatta is a Debian based distribution that provides an open command line interface that looks like Cisco or Juniper. The command line is built on top of standard bash shell with extensible template language.
This talk will go into the history of Vyatta, where it came from and how it is used today. For those who want to contribute or modify, it will also cover the internals of how this implemented.
Stephen Hemminger is a software engineer working remotely in Portland for Vyatta. He has been involved with Linux networking for 8 years and currently maintains bridging and routing utilities. Steve regularly presents at Linux conferences.
Many will break for the Lucky Lab on Hawthorne afterwards.
