Red Hat Summit 2017 will be in Boston this year, and I will be going for the first time.  I am looking forward to this conference and working in some of the labs.  The conference itself is three days long in the first week of May.  With my heavy interest in security and networking many of the sessions I am attending are focused around the security track offered by Red Hat.  Below is my current schedule for the week.


  • 10:15 – 11:00 – S102106 – Red Hat Security Roadmap
  • 11:30 – 12:15 – B104934 – The age of uncertainty: how can we make security better
  • 3:30 – 5:30 – L103745 – Hands on with the pros and the latest Red Hat Enterprise Linux capabilities


  • 10:15 – 11:00 – S105084 – Security-Enhanced Linux for mere mortals
  • 11:30 – 12:15 – S104249 – Identity and access management: Choosing the right tool for the right job
  • 3:30 – 4:15 – LT122001 – Lighting Talks: Infrastructure security
  • 4:30 – 5:15 – S105099 – High-availability clustering in Red Hat Enterprise Linux


  • 10:15 – 12:15 – L100049 – Practical SELinux: Writing custom application policy
  • 3:30 – 4:15 – B102584 – Red Hat Satellite – B0F

It will also be interesting to see how the Red Hat Summit compares with previous conferences such as Cisco Live and RSA.  Both conferences were longer and the schedules were fuller each day.  Based on the scheduling I see so far there is a large amount of hours open during the middle of the day.  I plan on using this time for eating, reviewing notes, meeting up with people, and visiting vendors of interest on site.  In any case I should have some great information to bring back and write various articles for this site.  Be sure and visit again for follow up posts on this subject.
