Episode Nine – Change the People

Pardon the break, we’re back with a long-ago recorded episode to give you all flashbacks to the MacIT conference, audibly. Hopefully the sound quality is passable, as it was recorded under less-than ideal conditions, but what an episode! We have Duncan McCracken, newly added to the advisory board of the MacIT conference, being prodded by Charles Edge (returning host and now former CTO of 318, Inc.) about Australian Rules ‘Football’ and animals down under. Originally titled ‘#@$% Off Nerds, This is Sportland’, we somehow skipped the need for an explicit tag. And as the delay in the publishing of this episode might lead one to suspect, this may very well end season one. It’s been a great run, and my thanks to all of the participants and listeners for helping me entertain y’all up until now.Special thanks indeed to Mike Boylan, Pepijn Bruienne, Charles Edge, Graham Gilbert, Luis Giraldo, Sam Keeley, Andrina Kelly, Michael Lynn, Ed Marczak, Seb Nash, Derick Okihara, Tim Perfitt... | Read more »

Patchoo! Casper patching done right.

 Patchoo is here and aims to bring some Munki-esque features and workflow to Casper. We all know that Casper has some gaps around patch deployment. Whilst Casper 9 somewhat improves capabilities there is still no cohesive way for an end user to install 3rd party and Apple Software Updates. Munki does this (and much more) effortlessly.There have been many discussions and great scripts shared on JAMFnation, but again none of them could bring the same user experience and admin capabilities that Munki could provide. Originally Patchoo started life with a even sillier name (munki for jamf a.k.a. junki) and was a project to integrate munki into Casper by pulling data from the JSS. After a lot of head scratching, I couldn’t come up with... | Read more »

Securing a Munki deployment with Puppet SSL certif...

Munki and Puppet have become very popular tools in the last few years, and make a great team for Mac management.  While Puppet is inherently secure due to its use of client-certificate based SSL for all communication, most Munki deployments still run over plaintext HTTP.  One of the best features of Puppet is its included Certificate Authority, and we can make great use of this to secure other services such as Munki.Running Munki over HTTP is problematic for two reasons. First, it leaves organizations open to man-in-the-middle attacks, whereby an attacker can compromise a machine with Munki installed by spoofing the DNS entry for the server hosting the repository.  By doing this, clients will check into the attacker’s server and install any software or configuration presented.  This can easily result in compromised machines, and this is especially important for machines which leave a secure campus network.The second issue with having a Munki repository served over HTTP is that the... | Read more »

Looking Forward to MacTech Conference 2014

It’s hard to believe, but the fifth, yes the fifth, annual MacTech conference will be held this year in Los Angeles, CA at the beautiful Manhattan Beach Marriott from November 5th-7th, with a full day of pre-conference workshops occurring on November 4th. I’ve been fortunate enough to have been able to attend MacTech Conference every year since it’s inception, and trust me, it is not an event you’ll want to miss. MacTech Conference consistently has some of the best session content from some of the most talented speakers in the industry along with the best evening networking-building events you’ll ever experience, period.It may seem a bit early to begin thinking about/planning for a conference that isn’t until November, but the discounted room rate for the hotel (link below) is expected to sell out quickly. Also, MacTech is offering an amazing “super early bird” discount price of just $899 until June 15th. That’s a $600 savings over the normal cost of a ticket.Highlights to... | Read more »
