Colloquium - Kaplan and Schryer

ECCR 2-28

Spamming, Spoofing and Spying on Your Personal Global System

Assume Nirvana arrived tomorrow in the form of 10Mb/s Ethernet LAN service between your home and work (and the Internet). Say the data is carried over a cable television system so anyone can easily and quickly have service. Folks are delighted: productivity and happiness soar.

We've had such service since the start of 1995. The experience is outstanding and also makes the system and network gurus' jobs a lot more "interesting." Such large distributed systems create problems from three basic sources:

  1. The number of points of failure skyrockets.

  2. The exposure of your LANs to outside hackers explodes.

  3. Users develop new services.

Systems Management is evolving from a local job into a global career. This talk outlines the problems we've seen and expect and hints at possible solutions. Finally, the use of a "Mobile Remote Telepresence" is demonstrated in the form of a model car that can be driven around Murray Hill over the Internet. The perfect way to meet people at work when telecommuting.

Free pizza during and after the talk.
Sponsored by the Local ACM Chapter.
