Portland Elasticsearch Meetup: Jeff Bryner from Mozilla, Kibana 4 and Shield Preview
Jama South

Join us at Jama South for food, drink, and Elasticsearch discussion.

Our Guest Speaker: Jeff Bryner ( @0x7eff ) is a 20+year infosec veteran/addict. Speaker at 3 DEF CONs, 3 Bsides, and 1 RSA (but he didn't mean it), he stands accused of re-writing everything in python, integrating security tools into 3D worlds with kinectasploit and taunting the Demo Gods in every presentation.

His Presentation: Hackers have all the fun. With slick, integrated, real-time, open suites like metasploit, armitage, SET, and lair they quickly seek out targets, share exploits, gain footholds and usually win.

The time has come for defense to get the same capabilities in an open-source platform dedicated to defense and based on modern technology. To this end the operations security group at Mozilla has developed MozDef: The Mozilla Defense Platform to take on traditional SIEM functionality of event management, alerting and correlation and expand the real-time capabilities of the defender into automated defense and shared incident response.

This presentation will cover the MozDef platform, its use of Elasticsearch and it's SIEM capabilities with as much live demo as the gods will allow.

The rest of the Agenda:

We also plan on going deep on Kibana 4, the powerful new version of Kibana that takes advantage of the aggregations API in Elasticsearch. A rewrite from the ground up, visualizations are now powered by D3js and provides an enhances workflow capability allowing you to Discover, Visualize and Dashboard your data for insights.

Shield is right around the corner and we will be giving an intro to it at the meetup. Learn how to enable access control, document level security, SSL and more!

We will also have a few Elasticsearch Solution Architects in town so its a great chance to get your questions answered by people that are in the field every day helping customers succeed with Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana (The ELK Stack).

Hope to see you all there!

Gwen Shapira

Gwen Shapira is a principal data architect at Confluent, where she helps customers achieve success with their Apache Kafka implementation. She has 15 years of experience working with code and customers to build scalable data architectures, integrating relational and big data technologies. Gwen currently specializes in building real-time reliable data-processing pipelines using Apache Kafka. Gwen is an Oracle Ace Director, the coauthor of Hadoop Application Architectures, and a frequent presenter at industry conferences. She is also a committer on Apache Kafka and Apache Sqoop. When Gwen isn’t coding or building data pipelines, you can find her pedaling her bike, exploring the roads and trails of California and beyond.

Stream All Things - Patterns of Modern Data Integration

80% of the time in every project is spent on data integration: Getting the data you want the way you want it. This problem remains challenging despite 40 years of attempts to solve it. We want a reliable, low latency system that can handle varied data from wide range of data management systems. We want a solution that is easy to manage and easy to scale. Is it too much to ask?

In this presentation, we’ll discuss the basic challenges of data integration and introduce design and architecture patterns that are used to tackle these challenges. We will explore how these patterns can be implemented using Apache Kafka and share pragmatic solutions that many engineering organizations used to build fast, scalable and manageable data pipelines.


Special thanks to WeWork Custom House who are hosting us for this event.
