Deploying Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS in distributed environments with MAAS

Mark Baker Product Manager for Server & Cloud at Canonical
Many people use Ubuntu Server in scale-out environments for web infrastructure, cloud or big data applications. The sheer scale of these deployments - at companies like Netflix, Mercado Libre and Instagram - has many people now referring to ‘hyperscale computing’. Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS contains new technologies to help the rapid deployment and management of web services in distributed environments, so you can scale your infrastructure without scaling cost. Join Matthew Revell and Mark Baker from the Ubuntu Server team to learn about these new technologies and how they can help you benefit from the same infrastructure as the world’s leading web scale companies.

  • Everyday consumers assume that when making a purchase, online or in-store, their card data is handed off to a trusted source, with security in place to protect them. However protecting these transactions and the retail payment ecosystem has become increasingly complex, with recent data breaches of large retailers testament to the vulnerabilities.

    In addition, compliance with PCI DSS fails to address some of these vulnerabilities resulting in potential exploitation with disastrous consequences. To address these security gaps the scope of security needs extending from the merchant, acquirer, switch and bank or card issuers to include the manufacturers of payment terminals at the point of sale and developers of payment application software.

    Join your fellow professionals to understand how by using Point-to-Point Encryption, card data is encrypted from the earliest possible moment of its capture, and ensures that data remains in an encrypted state consistently until it arrives at the payment gateway.

    Then understand why many merchants are considering P2PE not only to secure vulnerabilities, but also because it can effectively remove some of the merchant’s own security infrastructures from the scope of compliance with regulations such as PCI DSS. Lastly understand why encryption is only as secure as the encryption keys as when cryptography is used to protect valued data, the risk is transferred from the data to the keys.
