Colloquium - Kaplan and Schryer

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.
