1. Minutes of last meeting


2. Matters arising

Update on actions from last meeting.

  • Take to CSG policy on not archiving and just deleting accounts after grace period. [Action Alastair]
  • Redevelop User Documentation
    • Submit the skeleton system status summary from Nagios project (for maintaining the status tab). [Action Stephen]
    • We should be getting emailed (annually?) when pages we own need to be reviewed. Turn this on. [Action Alison]
    • Run a scan of pages in www.dice and wiki.inf/DICE which need to be pulled into Done fair bit, ongoing. Done.
    • Look at the support contact page to see if we can migrate into Drupal. [Action Alastair]
  • Account reconciliation
    • Can we use a trigger such as a host drop-off spanning map for a number of weeks to automate host key principal deletion (in some fashion) and could this be part of Prometheus? For consideration and comment. This is on the list.
  • Deploy Git/Gerrit as full services
    • Add security header to Git server as ssh will be accessable from outside ed. Done, but could add a change to iptables to restrict further ssh from the host. [Action Craig]
    • Use of AFS+SSH to solve end user managed access control means that iFriend write access to Git repositories for collaboration will probably not work as-is (would require full DICE account). Needs consideration (e.g. use https instead) but does not need to block this approach. [Action Craig]
  • Review of OpenLDAP DICE client configuration
    • Investigate using SSSD minimal cacheing to protect against connectivity issues, although this may just be an action to create a separate project. [Action Ian]
  • Securing School Web Servers
    • Sends notes from meeting to COs. Done.
  • Options for two-factor authentication
    • Include investigation of whether OTP support can be done at the same time. Add to project descriptor. Done.
  • Windows 7 Upgrade
    • Take to CEG for ratification. [Action Tim]
