CAcert Assurances at LISA conference, San Diego, CA, USA 11 December 2012

The 26th Large Installation System Administration conference (aka. Lisa 2012) will be meeting Dec 9-14 in San Diego, CA, USA. We have held a CAcert Birds-of-a-Feather (BoF) session at several of these. The CAcert Assurance BoF at LISA 12 will be Tuesday evening December 11th. This session is open to the public. Full details are posted on the event page on the CACert Wiki:

We will start with a presentation to cover the basics. We will also discuss new policies and the changes that came out of the enhanced processes. We will have several assurers there to do initial assurances. Mutual assurances are encouraged for getting practice and for answering questions. And there is the added benefit of earning experience points.

If you are in town for the conference or you live in the area, please join us to learn more about free digitial certificates available through CAcert.org.

Antworten auf diese und andere Fragen erhaltet ihr auf dem Assurer Training Event.
